    I wish they were getting in earlier, or leaving later tomorrow. Unless I wake up at 6am and head down I won't get any daylight shots of them.

    I didn't bother going down last night, lighting would've been brutal and I was feeling too lazy to venture down at that time.

    You missed out.

    Gumball was epic. The cars were absolutely amazing. My photos kinda suck as it was hard to take pics at night but here's some highlights. Click the link for the full album though. The amount of non-gumball awesome cars was pretty incredible too. Lambos and Ferraris were a dime a dozen.

    WIDEBODY R8. Was so sick.





    This was a highlight.

    Everyone loved this guy.

    Nice shots Ben! A friend of mine went back this morning and got lots of shots of them lined up on the street too.

    They were on their way to Detroit next. Would have been cool to be there this morning to see them all lined up..

    the thing with the stupid chinese are that the more you try to stop them the more they get stubborn. but the pressure to stop this madness shouldnt let up too.
