The Pete in the case was on display in the "Hall of Champions" vender's room. It is a 1/8 scale model entirely scratch built. It was a 10 year project and the detail is insane... down to every wire, nut, bolt, clamp, etc... very detailed. Robert said he asked the builder about where he got the acorn nuts on the wheels and he said he turned them all!!! The model was definitely a popular topic of conversation!

Unbelievable eye candy. Other than missing out on meeting members here I'm kinda glad I couldn't make it for I wouldn't have been able to contain myself!

After cleaning up all the drool I think my venture into this field will have to be the dozer. So, if anyone can lead me the way unto where and what (and I'm sure most of those are customs) I wold appreciate it. Are they conversions? I'm just totally smitten with that all green dozer with the green tracks!! WOW!!!

Anyway, thanks so much for the great pics!! I know where I'll be spending most of my time at.

Stepside covered that - it was AMAZING.

I also notice a couple shots where my ugly mug is showing. Good thing - now if the wife tries to say I was stepping out I can prove all I was doing was spending money. It has occurred to me, though, that I did not drive a truck while I was there. That was one of my goals for the trip, and the reason I purchased the pit pass. However, I was having so much fun talking trucks and taking pictures and movies that I plum forgot!
