2018 was by far my greatest spotting year ever! I went to four main shows this year that are featured heavily in this article wihch are, The New York Auto Show, Ferrari West Hartford, Dream Ride and finally Limerock Bugatti Weekend. Some various Limerock races were also attended were I got some nice spots as well as vacation spots. I got a new camera midway through the year which is why the Dream Ride and Bugatti Weekend photos are so much better than the others which I took with my phone camera. I hope you all enjoy this recap of the year and I hope that you guys also make articles similar to this one with your own spots from the year! I hope to have another great year for spots and I hope you guys follow suit! Now without further ado, here are my best spots of 2018!!!!!

Bugatti Weekend at Limerock:
Warning: I know nothing about a lot of these cars, as I am no expert on vintage cars or vintage Bugatti's.
1936 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, one of two in the world valued at over $40mil. Perhaps my greatest spot ever!
The black one (right) I know is a 1937 Type 57 SC Drophead Coupe, the left one is a Type 57 SC Atalante one of 17
Here's part of the insane line of Bugatti's at the event
1936 Bugatti Type 57G Tank (front) a Le Mans winning car, featured in the Simeone Museum. I have no idea what the one in back is
Part of the row of elegant Bugatti's, there were so many more than what's in the photo, look out for my individual posts of some of these cars
