    What a blast this has been! It's been so great meeting everyone! Finally able to put a face to the username! Last night for me was interesting also, but not as "interesting" as Jesda's. After we got back from "the king", Tanner, Jesda and I had some Bacardi Limon that Tanner brought, then Tanner bonged some Corona, then as you know, we went to the bars and Jesda and I (mainly Jesda ) shared a pitcher of Blue Moon. I was pretty tipsy, but hardly "drunk". I had lots of water to drink afterwords then when I woke up I was feeling about 80%.


    What a blast! I took around 105 pictures so far, and I'll upload 'em when I get home today.

    Looks like I missed a great time I really wish I could have been there. I'll be at the next one though.

    Ahh, just a lot of stuff. Long story. I did everything I could, but it didn't work out. And I wanted to see your Brougham before you sell it too.

    Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking fo

    As others have said, this weekend was a total blast. Well worth the drive for me. It was great meeting everybody and hanging out with people who are into cars as much as I am. And I'm still full from today's brunch. We Cadillac owners sure know how to eat (and drink).

    It was so funny last night when we were sitting outside at this bar downtown. A last-generation Buick Riviera drove by. I spotted it, then looked over at Chad and he nodded. We both have this radar for cars. Among my close friends, only one is a real car guy, so I really enjoyed spending time with people who get it.

    Golf today was great, too. Considering this was the first time I've played a real course in six years, I was not embarrassed. I did have the highest score at 62 for nine hole, but that was only 3 more than Nick, and I finished strong. All of us—Nick, Tony, Kurt and Brett—had our share of good and, um, not-so-good shots. But there was one hole where we all did well. And I think everybody had a good time.

    I have 281 pictures from the trip over and the meet so far. I'll add some to the "best of" thread once I get home. And I'll put all of them online somewhere sometime this weekend.

    Thanks to everybody who made the trip. Thanks also for all the compliments for Cruella and Hoover. I think he had a good time, too. So has my Dad, and I'm glad he came along.

    It was great finally meeting you Gary, as well as Hoover, what a dog! What time did you guys get done with golf? I actually haven't eaten anything other than a bag of M&M's on the ride home...I haven't been hungry since I ate brunch and I only had one plate!

    We finished up golf around 5:30; Nick and Tony continued playing the back nine. We got back to my sister's in Omaha a little after 7:30.

    I've had two Diet Cokes since that fantastic brunch, and I'm still not hungry. As much as I ate this weekend, I shouldn't need to eat again until sometime in July.

    Ohhh, so you guys finished golf about the same time I got home, I gotcha.

    I'm on the same boat as you Gary...I don't think I'll dine at an expensive restaurant for quite a while after this weekend! It drained my "expensive restaurant funds" lol! Ah well, it was worth it

    Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking food

    HAHAHAHA, what a great weekend guys! Thanks for coming out!! It was great meeting all of you and all of you have gorgeous Caddies!!! Im glad you guys had fun.

    I think we had 16 cars at the actual meet which was FANTASTIC!!

    Golf was pretty awesome today. I started off pretty bad but recovered nicely in the end. I shot like a beast on the back nine. Had 2 pars both of which should have been birdies. I shot a 53 on the back nine which is not too bad for waveland. I have seen consistant scratch golfers hit in the upper 40s. Its a pretty tough course really.

    One thing about Iowa is that we definately know how to eat and drink like some pros.

    Re: FIRST EVER NATIONAL MEET Des Moines, Iowa May 18th-20th 1/4 mile golf drinking food

    Here's a few pics I took!

    In chronological order...


    It's a lifted Astro van I saw about 30 minutes from my house. I shit you not.


    Jesda's, Mine, Tanner's (derrty_deVille)


    When John (JRau) popped the hood on this, the first words out of my mouth were "holy ****". I have never seen a cleaner engine bay on a 1991 anything.


    Brian's and John's Broughams...1990 & 91 respectively. Both are Antelope Firemist (an extra charge paint IIRC), but Brian did that duotone last year, and man does it look good!


    This is my new desktop wallpaper. We went to a lookout right outside of downtown Des Moines and it had a few tanks on display, along with a fighter. I got into the lookout a bit later than everyone else, parked my car, got the idea for this picture, and ran back to my car and almost backed over Jesda when I went to position my car! lol! Sorry dude!


    "damn, that 4.9L makes a lot of low end torque, just watch it pull that Sherman!"


    More to come later...these are just from Friday night.

    Well, I finally got the nearly 600 photos taken on the road trip and the meet posted (thanks for making the server space available, Jesda). Fortunately, iPhoto can automatically export photos to a Web page, but I still needed to add captions and text style sheets. My road trip photo journal is here: http://www.gdwriter.q45.org/Cadillac_Meet_Road_Trip/index.html

    Don't miss the nearly 200 pictures of classic pre- and post-World War II cars from the Cussler Museum near Denver, plus other cool stuff from the road trip.

    Please sign the guestbook and send me a PM if you want full-size copies of any of the pictures. Enjoy!
