  1. LOL, Curt! Can't wait to see you guys again!
  2. Michael Felix - Positively! We look forward to meeting you. UPDATE: I've been remiss . . . should have posted this info sooner. The former website is locked up by some nasty little electron gremlins. SO . . . we made a new one! Go to: desertscaleclassic.org Heavy emphasis on the ".org" - that's the secret code that gets you into the NEW website. Lots of information there.
  3. We are still having problems restoring the website . . . be patient, it's in the works. In the meantime, email us at dsc-hq@cox.net with any questions. A couple of updates: ALL the award packages are sold . . . including the ones blunc purchased. THANK YOU ALL for your support!!! We can always use more Event Sponsors. Contact us at dsc-hq@cox.net for information. Categories have been realigned. We'll have a post up shortly & emails out to everyone who has entered the online events - dscV16 and dscV17 - and the previous live event - DSC15 (2019). Good News - Great News - Bad News: We have almost as many vendors already lined up as we had at DSC15! But we have room for many more. We've expanded our space so we'll have plenty of room - no more crowded vendor expo, lots of table space for entries. Bad news? I guess not. More space, wider aisles, bigger tables, more vendors, great looking new facility - HUGE Farmers Market outside. What's not to like? PLUS: ScaleFinishes will be in the house - LIVE and in person! Tom Allen will be on the job with us! And, an exciting vendor will be here . . . more on this later. Save the date, polish up your entries, and dust off the piggy bank before you raid it!!! Want to be a vendor? Plenty of tables still available. Contact us at dsc-hq@cox.net. Thanks!! We'll be posting an updated Event Flyer tonight . . . having difficulty with our POS ISP. -danno-
  4. Mike, Let me know which award you're interested in. We'll get it going with or without the website update (which is in the works). Thanks, -danno-
  5. Danno


    Most excellent!
  6. Good deal!! We're all waiting with bated breath waiting to make your LIVE! acquaintance!
  7. Save the Date - - - Saturday, APRIL 23, 2022 DESERT SCALE CLASSIC 18 . . . LIVE!! COMPLETE INFORMATION COMING SOON! New Venue More Space Expanded Swap Meet Expanded Hours More! More! More! Phoenix, AZ
  8. What . . . is . . . snow? 🌵
  9. RIP, Sarge. Thank you for your service and a job done well. I thank God all the time for being my car partner throughout my career and seeing me safely through it.
  10. Trust me. Thought about that, too. But he was too young - too adventurous and I worried about possibly damage to him . . . The drum set was just NOISE, nothing explosive! 😏 BTW - It worked pretty well . . .
  11. Many years ago, my grandson was the hostage in a bitter battle staged by my ex-daughter-in-law to punish my son for being born. [She married him, but later threw him away and kept the grandson.] After years of trying to deal with her (impossible) and tons of court skirmishes and $$$ spent, she managed to retain enough custody control to make life miserable for son, grandson, and us. She insisted anything nice obtained for or gifted to grandson MUST be kept at her house. So I bought him a drum set. 😁
  12. Curt and John, Please bring these guys to DESERT SCALE CLASSIC 18 in April! We'd love to have them on the tables for the folks around these parts to enjoy. Of course, if you do . . . I'll have to buy the judges new sunglasses and a bigger bottle of Wild Turkey! Best Regards, my friends. -danno-
  13. My friends - Albert and Kodi. They took to each other instantly. I miss them both.
  14. Not only that! . . . But, the blue with black stripes Cobra 427 SC Roadster won Best in Class . . . AND . . . Best Automotive . . . AND . . . Best in Show (Overall)!!!!! YES! A car model won Best in Show!!!! In an IPMS Regional contest!!!! Ain't no anti-car bias in Phoenix!
  15. Good points (particularly regarding transponders), but the fans NEED the numbers. The cars all look alike and the driver names are too tiny to see/read in televised race coverage . . . but looking for their drivers' big ole numbers on the cars, yeah. Even the broadcasters have trouble, often referring just to "the 19 car" instead of saying "Martin Truex" [granted, not so much the big time drivers, but certainly the 2nd/3rd tier drivers and part-time drivers and substitute drivers, etc., etc.]. Just my quick 2cents worth - FWIW.
  16. What difference does it really make? As long as the number is readily readable. Moving it either forward or rearward provides a larger, uninterrupted 'billboard' for $pon$or$ money.
  17. Now that's funny, right there! It's uplifting humor, Tom! Really rises to the occasion. 😄
  18. And there you go! Plastic in 1/25th cannot be far behind. Remember, gang . . . there are no such things as coincidences! 😉
  19. It was not a good look, not even close to minimally acceptable in the business place. Embarrassing for R2. Now this is really scary. I totally agree with Casey's post. {What's this world coming to?}
