Fabulous effort Nick, very fast as you say. The cage in sons car was $14,000 alone, and the About – RallySafe making response times to accidents much quicker..and you can follow on computer. A great community also with top competitors offering help and advice to newcomers.

Cheers

Phil

See the road behind me. That is where Kowalski in the white Challenger plowed into the bulldozers in the original Vanishing Point.

So I drive by there Saturday and there's a white Challenger parked at that building. It's becoming a cult mecca.

No car footage but here's some bike footage from Europe. It's on a BMW R1200gs so they are lacking a little in power when loaded up.

Appreciate you like my ride. Lucas demons under control. Dielectric grease on
every contact keeps things in order. Drips oil as all proper English cars.

Went to a little get together in Oregon. My wife's Datsun was surrounded by 46 of its Roadster siblings.

Not exactly in the class of a vintage sports car but what I just got none-the-less.


I just couldn't justify the extra weight or cost of a Rubicon, ck.

Nice Bob!
Great color too!

Nobody can really justify a Rubicon!

73' 240z - owned last 22 years, it could use some body and paint work. Store it in a garage few miles from apartment, so I only drive once every few months.
