Long Island Meet Pics (WARNING LOTS OF BIG HUGE PICS!!)

Post by potownrob » Sat Dec 22, 2007 3:51 am

Well, there's more pics where these came from but here are most of the highlights. I took the pics with two cameras, so it jumps around a little but it's in order for the most part. EDIT: they're pretty much in REVERSE order the way I have it posted. I'll update with edited commentary for most of the pics and videos will be added later.

We had a hard time telling what car this was from where we were close to 100 yards away in the other parking lot so I zoomed in on it with camera #2

Just the three of you?

And John looks strangely more mature than the one picture wher ehe was sitting on top of a police cruiser (or something) wearing shorts. Nothing personal :)

yeah it was just the 3 of us, John, Kevin (nonchalant) and me. Jared (njsi) had a family emergency and a couple other city folks had tests and other obligations. we had lots of fun, nonetheless. i may add some pics that show more of john and kevin (especially john) driving kevin's mustang and my maxima around (the pic of my car practically rolling over might give you a good idea of what was going on). there's also 2 or 3 videos i took; one is of john doing a launch with the mustang and another is of kevin launching his car with john coaching him on how to do an aggressive launch from the passenger seat.

Some states don't require one, although even in the ones that do, it often isn't enforced. It's required in Texas, but I still see many people without one and rarely hear about anyone being ticketed for it.
