Why do these shows matter to the GRM audience? Because our kinds of cars are winding up on the national show field.

How’s that? Let’s look back at this past weekend’s festivities at The Amelia.

Radwood and Concours d’Lemons represented new additions to Saturday’s show field. Lemons, as usual, welcomed the usual mix of unicorns and clunkers–including a few fielded by forum regulars.

And our editor showed his Porsche 911 at Radood, putting an ’80s BMX atop and ’80s automotive icon.

Then there’s The Amelia, the weekend’s main event. This year’s field welcomed Japanese icons, IMSA race cars and modern supercars.

Click the links, check out the photos, and then let’s regroup and discuss. What were your favorites, and what would you like to bring next year?

And, hey, it's my bike in the lead shot. :)

Funny that the first people I saw after unloading were GRM forum regulars....

It was nice talking with you this weekend.  The porsche looked awesome with the bike on the roof.

No prob at all. You all caught up? And Little Stampie is no longer so little. (I'm guessing you already know this.)

We did.  He was heading back to his car to cool off for a bit.  Yeah the sweet little 6 year old at 2015 Challenge isn't so little, sweet, or 6 year old.

The other day I realized that the neighbor's kid is now big enough to kick my butt.

What a neat event.

David's trick bike was a show in itself.

Folks were saying over 100,000 spectators walked the two fairways on Saturday.  Well worth the 200 mile drive through the fog to get there by 6 am!

While on the field, a photographer came over to chat. He saw me stopped at the rest area in Flagler County. Turns out he drove up from somewhere near West Palm Beach that morning.
