We had 7 Safaris in the show and one '56 Safari showed in the parking lot for a total or 8 Safaris.

Rich and Pam - '55 Safari. Restoration in progress. Most Rust and Best Work in progress awards. They actually drove this rust bucket from Bay area to the meet along with their '55 2 door sedan.
Larry and Debbie - 56 Safari. Best modified Safari Award. This baby has 76 Trans Am mechanicals including clip, engine, transmission, rear end, and steering column. Larry says this modification really worked well.
The Phantom '56. This one showed up in the parking lot and we talked to the owner. I don't remember name of owner but do have their email address. They purchased this car recently and they are sure to get pressured to join POCI and the Safari chapter.
Larry (that's me) and Julia's '56. In the excitement, I got pictures of all the cars except mine, you'll see glimpses of it in other pic's. These are photos at my house but it was in the show. It is completely stock and original except for paint and dual exhausts (added after pictures were taken.)
Marks 57. This car is awesome. No expenses spared in building. Won first place in the Safari class.
Marvin's 57. Very well preserved original, including paint and interior.
Mike's 57. He does a little more work on it each year and is another awsome Safari.
Robin's 57. He ran a close race for best rust but Rich and Pam edged him out. I'm sure this will be a beauty some day. Just insert $$$ and watch it blossom.
Best Non Safari driven to meet.
This picture is from the August Pontiac meet at Ventura. My '56 is sandwiched between Mark's 57 and Marvin's 57. Tough competition!
