  Hi Everyone,

I'd like to start by wishing you all a very Happy Autumn, or Fall, which ever is your preference. I am lovin' this cooler weather and am looking forward to the leaves falling and maybe even a bit of rain. With October right around the corner we've gor some great seasonal car shows and of course Halloween.

I've attended this show before, it always gets quite a turn out.
