Thank you to everyone who showed up and made this event great! We just provide the space (and scones) but you provide the great cars and camaraderie. Great to meet jeep_jeff, Maxichamp, and Stu_Rock! I now have a face and a car to put to the screen name. My photos are up at https://picasaweb.google.com/101400198375253371745/20120310SecondsSaturdays004 I think I got everyone and everything that showed up: another great 1930's Chevrolet Commercial Canopy Truck, a nicely sorted and FOR SALE 1986 Golf GTI autocross car, Telsa Roadster, Alfa Giulia SS, autos borrowed from their loving spouses in the form of a new FIAT 500 from "dwegmull" and 2011 HCOTY winner Sparky Pete in "Super Spouse's" hot rodded (via sport exhaust) SMART, 1st gen Electric Blue MR2, Stu's 505 Diesel, Corvair rampside pickup (soon to be for sale on ebay), Maxichamp's VW Phaeton, Jeff's yellow TJ Jeep, Mad_Science's Wagoneer, the "noisebomb" Volvo 142 and Ford Maverick from Bay Area LeMons racers, a beautiful DS with so many different brown tones and a vinyl top (never seen that before in my Citroen life) that had me speechless at it's caramel-ly goodness, a "cheaty" ;) E30, a 1980's 911 looking amazing in all black, a red 1970's Targa 911T in great condition, the worlds nicest Ford Falcon, a MKI Cortina with some sexy yellow driving lights and the "usual" Citroens and BMW M535 sprinkled throughout the shop. Let's hope for more great weather in April. If you have any suggestions (different time 9am start?, have a "featured gang of idiots and their cars", "field trip" afterwards to some sweet Bay Area destination and/or road (Mines in Livermore?), etc) just let me know. You make this event great so anything you think will make it better will be considered.

Thanks,

Chris Hanzel

Chris,

Great pictures. I didn't realize more cars were going to show up after I left! My post is already off to the presses, so when it pops up online, you and I should try to get a link of your pictures put in the comments section. Again, thank you and your dad for hosting this.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the largest attended Seconds Saturdays yet!! A SAAB Sonett III, '27 hot rod, '57 farm truck, a Lambretta, and all sorts of aircooled flat German slot cars. Hope to see more folks and your great cars June 9th. Photos from Saturday posted here... https://picasaweb.google.com/1014001983 ... ys20120512

Multiple Hanzel events in May continues to draw crowds 

May was jammed packed with another great Seconds Saturday turnout that included a SAAB Sonett, all manner of air cooled German hardware and the "usual" gang of Citroens.  As if one day of fun wasn't enough we stayed open the previous Friday for the neighborhood "First Fridays" (what a clever name) and had the honor of a display by Steven Cavalieri that included prints from the books "Racing Colours", posters from the 24 Hours of Lemons, and other original artwork. http://www.stevencavalieri.com/  

Photos of the First Friday event are here: https://picasaweb.google.com/101400198375253371745/HanzelsFirstFridaysMay 

Photos of the May Seconds Saturday event are here: https://picasaweb.google.com/101400198375253371745/SecondsSaturdays20120512

Our next event is Saturday June 9th.  Hope to see you there!

This was an awesome gathering, and I am really glad I finally showed up! Many thanks to the Hanzels for hosting this at your shop! I learned a lot from the friendly people there, and I finally understand why people like those ridiculously strange French cars. Thanks for posting the pics too! I didn't get many myself, since I was too preoccupied with chatting and staring at awesome cars.

I was really disappointed to miss out on the last one of the year... I had plans pretty much the entirety of my waking hours, since it was my birthday. (the big three zero) Any pics of what I missed?
