This is a messy trip down Las Vegas Blvd at night. Mrs Wags and I took the top off the Vette and cruised the Strip on ST Patrick's Day and enjoyed a couple of hours of relaxation. We came in from the south and went downtown, then reversed and came all the way back in veeeerrrrrry slllllooooow traffic. The pictures are not all that great, considering we were moving often and night stuff is always a challenge, but show some color that many will recognize and others will get a feeling for what it is like if you haven't been there.
The famous Las Vegas sign isn't all that far from our house.
Closer look of the sign that just about every day you go by it, pople are posing for a camera like silly tourists. We'll do it someday!
Little Church of the West Wedding Chapel.
The Luxor sign was hard to get on the move.
The top of the Luxor has the brightest light in town on top going straight up to the stars.
New York New York.....
The green of the MGM is very bold.
The symbol of freedom is miniaturized on the strip.
The Lady again.

Is that a roller coaster in front? Yes, it is!
There is everythng on the strip, here is the sales store for a trip to the grand canyon.
Look, a giant M & M candy!
This happens to be the truck of a long time Wagtimer, Little John, who is retired and travels around the country goin' racin'. Many would like that, but he comes west for the early part of the season, then heads to NASCAR country and returns late in the year. John might best remembered for his donation of two tires made into tables that we auctioned off many years ago. Imagine seeing him tooling around on a race night in Phoenix.
There's that large candy again.
And more lights
