High Noon: Car d’Lane & Dad

Eric Barro of Lake City Photography attends Car d'Lane each year to honor the memory of his father, a racing and auto enthusiast. On his Facebook page, Eric writes: "My dad loved cars. I remember him taking me to slot car racing tournaments where I spent several hours watching him and his buddies work on their scale model slot cars and raced them until the wee hours of the morning. ... He worked for a car dealership and he would bring home posters of Mustangs, Corvettes and Camaros and I would stare at them for hours imagining myself driving one of those beauties. He even let me play with scale models of those cars. (Eric snapped the photo above during Car d'Lane over the weekend. You can read the rest of Eric's story and see more Car d'Lane photos here.)

Question: What did you do to honor your father over the weekend?
