Not sure if anyone remembers the old TV show called MASH...but they had a pole in the middle of the camp.
On that pole were arrows with names of towns and how far away from home they were.
This is exacly what the Coronados CC had at thier table in Building 1 at Torque Fest.
Last year we had quite a bit of response - this year was even better!

A special thanks to the couple from London England that planned their USA vacation around Torque Fest! We are humbled and hope you had a good time.
And we can't forget the long haul award.......
this guy DROVE his car all the way from British Columbia!
That is ABOVE the state of Washington!!!
I gotta tell ya - when he emailed me stating he was heading over - I thought - SUUUURRRRE
But he found me on Thursday during the Coronados Pre Party.
Not only did he drive over - he broke down in the middle of Montana and had to wait overnight in some tiny little town to get a part Fed Ex'd in to keep his trip going.
Most people would have stopped and turned around - not this guy - he just kept on coming....
THAT is the dedication and mindset that comes out to the Vintage Torque Fest - they are gonna make it here no matter what and they are driving their cars and having a good time.
We appreciate that.
Let's keep it going in 2013.
