well thats kinda a bummer on the track issue , but what a great experience anyways , always cool to see another culture . nice pics thx for sharing !! very cool cars to see

After looking through those pictures, I was just saying to my better half that those people need someone like me!

Very little actually sold. Talking to the locals, they didn't know stuff was for sale. Normally, it's illegal to import a car to the Kingdom that's more than four years old and/or modified. We had a special exemption that allowed any car bought at the show to actually be able to get a plate.

But nobody knew, so nobody brought any money. Worse, all the materials from the auction company were in English, not Arabic. Most people spoke enough English to have a conversation with us, but reading a book full of technical information and pricing on a car was a different story. Promotion screwup.
