What a team and what a week!  Eric Wittler, Chris Greene, Don Mitchell, Dumptruck, Jason Mitchell, Keith Zanghi, Sean Rondestvedt, Les Holm, John Drury, Jessi Combs, Ed and Elaine Shadle took time to get a team photo.  Five minutes  later we were in a major teardown process, getting the car ready to head home.

 The Eddie Harris new livery was very popular

After a long week in Las Vegas, the team was looking forward to heading home, but dreading the always present load up routine.  After hundreds of times, it always seems to take a few hours.  In the end, everyone is pretty much worn out from lifting and packing away all the gear necessary to run the large display.

Garrett Holm, who was in town on business, stopped by to lend a hand.  Les Holm, Jason Mitchell, Sean Rondestvedt, Eric Wittler, Chris Greene, Don Mitchell, Keith Zanghi and Ed Shadle finished out the week.  John and Chris had the biggest challenge of driving the LevX™ Transporter back to Tacoma.  Les, Jason, Sean and Don flew home, while Keith, Ed and Elaine headed South to Laguna Beach to attend the wedding of long time sponsor, Mark Moore.


Marcel’s Tour 


The three took time to stop off at Marcel’s Metalwork.  Marcel’s had two cars under construction.  We can’t give you the names or show you photos, but we can show you one of his cars that won the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona earlier in the year: James Hetfields Black Pearl.  The entire body is hand made!
