That's the rare Sanyo M-X820, Christine.  It came in two flavors - one with regular silver casing and the other with simulated wood sides.

 

Thanks for the video, Chris!  How would you compare this year's event with the one last year?

^ ^ ^ ^ ^  Many thanks, I just looked online at this model, and it's 'model neighbours': Very expensive indeed but so handsome.

The German crew definitely know how to showcase their collection.
Would love to go, someday.

Yeah, that Sanyo is a show stopper. It is perfect in every aspect.

 

I think this year was a little bigger than last. There wasn't a food truck in the middle like last year, so the long table was longer. I am working on another video, will post soon.

 

Next year is the 10th anniversary of this event. Each time I have go, I have thought "I have come home, this is my Mecca". Other than the language barrier, everyone there is generous, welcoming and kind. 

 

The only thing that is strange is that many of these collectors are NOT online. So we may not have seen / heard of them before. It absolutely floors me to meet people that have 420 radios and are not part of this or any online community!

 

If you saw the artwork / paintings, that is an artist named Maxi. I saw her amazing work last year, but due to the language barrier, I wasn't able to speak with her. Mix in the fact that her and her husbands booth was right next to the DJ speakers (last year) made it really tough to talk. This year I had Max translate for me and I have commissioned her to create a custom piece of art highlighting the TRC-920. I can't wait to see what she comes up with! She doesn't typically ship her work, so she is going to get it to Max who will forward it to me. And again, her and her husband Dieter are not online.

 

Maxi and Dieter were also selling antenna's for 4 Euro each! If I had the money I would have bought the whole bag. I did get a set for my C-100 though. I took them over to a C-100 at the show and measured them  :yes:  :thumbsup:

The time and effort that went into the individual displays was amazing as well. One guy rolls up in a van and over the next few hours proceeds to erect a well thought out display consisting of a tent, stand, radio's, accessories, lights and in one case a MASSIVE sub woofer underneath.

That is some incredible Graf Fu right there.  The one to the right of "Andes" is amazing.  The technique makes it appear to have been done with water colors and a brush.

I'll tell ya FD, these dudes are the real deal. We all drive past art work, sometimes we even stop to admire it, but when you see someone laying it down live, seeing how much time is involved, it really changes the way you see these pieces. That wall was facing the sunny side of the building on the west. They started at noon and worked until the sunset and it was HOT! They were in the sun the whole day.

SLO, this is the mecca of our sport and stands alone in all the Boombox Meets I have seen. There are so many reasons why this simply could not be done in the US. First is the obvious noise issue. These guys were bumping night club volume bass beats from 2pm till 2am outside. Even with a permit, the police are getting called at 10pm! Next is the fact that they have a full bar! They bring and sell beer, wine, cider and liquor to sell to the people who attend. Just imagine what would happen if you tried to do that in the states without a permit! Then there is the food. A guy running a BBQ selling brats. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but in the states, you'd be getting shut down by a visitor from the health department. 

 

In my opinion, this is one of the only places anything like this can take place and does take place every year. 

 

Next year is their 10 year anniversary, I'm expecting it to be bigger than ever. 

 

I want to personally thank Max for letting me crash out at his place for the second year in a row and catching a ride to the event as well as being my translator! Thanks Brother!
