Today a couple of us on LI and Dan (Rider R) from Jersey went to a car gathering in OBI. It is a weekly "show" consisted of some of the nicest cars I've seen. We then headed out further towards the end of the LI and went to visit Manhattan Motors of Hamptons, an exotic car dealership. I'm sure Pete (pafox) is still reminiscing his experience inside the purdy white Murcielago. Then came some good ol' lunch at Gep's (lm2lg) friends restaurant and some good ol' driving on the roller coaster back roads of West Hamptons. Below are samples of some of the pictures I snapped (when I remembered). I hope you all will enjoy this as much as I did. Twas a beautiful day and great time.<p>The bridge leading to the show:<br><IMG SRC="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y222/HJZ/Bridge.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>When we first walked towards the parking lot, I see this.

<br>The bridge leading to the show:<br><IMG SRC="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y222/HJZ/Bridge.jpg" BORDER="0"><br> I'm glad that you got a picture of this bridge because it was absolutely beautiful driving up and over it. I wish my batteries weren't dead because I would have taken some pics. We really should be on the Volvo payroll because we could have easily sold an R at Manhattan Motorcarriers.<p>DAn
