We had a great time at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA this past weekend. We got to meet a number of readers, and connect with some of our favorite reporters like "Big Al" Liebmann, Roger Rohrdanz, Richard Parks, Sam Flowers, Richie Jaeske, Michael Corazzelli, John Stimac, Tom Peter and Les Bateman! If you were there and we didn't get a chance to say hi, we still love you and appreciate all that you do! Check out this year's AMBR winner and let us know what you think!  We've also got some great articles this week - LED Headlights from Jim Clark, and a look at Corky Coker's new show!
