Finally posted these pictures from the 2006 Hot Rod Reunion in Bakersfield. I just bought an awesome new tripod with a pistol grip head. It worked out really well for the long exposures I had to take during the cacklefest. Now all I need is to get a full frame digital SLR. I’m thinking about the Canon EOS 5D now. Body, lens, and 4g compact flash should all total around $3300… reasonable.
