I spent the final twelve years of my IBM career here, and it felt good to be back on the campus.
The car show was held in conjunction with the IBM Club Chile Cook-off so there was a good employee crowd turnout during the lunch hour.
The cars arrived during the early morning hours, and the event sponsors thought my motor must have conked out as I pulled up to the registration tent. After explaining that the evTD was all-electric, they put me in the "Green Cars" category.
There was a nice turnout of cars, from well shined Corvettes, Mustangs, and BMWs to custom and exotic sports cars. The majority of the car owners seem to be retirees, which makes sense. I never had time for much in the way of hobbies while spending every waking hour focussed on the business of IBM.

|Gorgeous Custom 1940 Chevy|
|1967 Camaro SS|
|1950 Chevy five window pickup|
|1934 Plymouth - Beautiful!|
Down to the end of this row are the other entries in the "Green Car" category. Brian Lasseter's Saturn has 50 CALB SE cells and a Zilla 1K controller, a very nice build. The other "Green Car" was a new Chevy Volt.
