The long-tail GT40 and the Ferrari were in my Top 5, too. My other top finds were:

I also have a perpetual soft spot for the Ford GT40s, Lola T70s and Cobras that I always find at the Mitty.

That's a F5000, right? Gotta love formula cars that sound like muscle cars.

Alas, I only got to see the occasional car cruise by on the access road. Never got close to the track or the pits this year.

Yeah, I believe it was a 1968.

That sucks. Were you stuck on Vendor row the whole time?

Yup. I was allowed to cross to the other side of the row to get food, but otherwise we were busy with customers pretty much non-stop. Working an event is nothing like spectating!

I'm going to focus on the infield/corrals because that's where I was most of the weekend.

For starters, this CRX was really cool.

This guy was awesome and his 510 was maybe even cooler. Had a more modern turbocharged Nissan engine under the hood.

This 914 had an LS in the rear.

This wasn't their first rodeo:

This guy won our "Coolest Porsche at the Mitty" award. Again, really awesome guy.

I had never seen one of the Furey cars in person. It was awesome.

And a shout-out to our very own jstancel for being awesome on the skidpad:

Speaking of paddock sightings, I need to find my photos of the pristine Ford Cortina with the small block V8 and track mods.

Supercar sightings included a Porsche 918 Spyder, Lamborghini Aventador and Gallardo Superleggera, Ferrari 458 Spider, a blacked-out Audi R8 and a pair of new Corvette Z06s.

Were you the one who helped jump the 996 Turbo while waiting for parade laps on Friday afternoon? If so, thanks! I was in the Merc behind the Porsche and was trying to find a set of cables for him when I saw it wasn't turning over.

Yep, that was me. That all makes sense now. I remember seeing you asking for cables, and then moments later he came up and asked me for a jump. I thought, 'why are people's cars dying?!' He mentioned that it was commonplace for porsche's to lose voltage. Know anything about that?

It's commonplace for Porsche's to sit around a lot without a battery tender.
