Gumball 3000!!!
Hey all I haven't posted something in a while so I thought I'd let you know about something that I ran across the other day.

Evidently there is this event based on the the movie Canon Ball Run. (Which incidently I rented and watched the other day. Humor back then was alot different than the humor now a days.)
Anyways, it's called the gumball3000 in which a bunch of rich people in very nice cars drive across the country from check point to check point.

I watched a video by teckademics and was very impressed and jotted it down as one of my life goals to run in the gumball. I encourage others to view the videos because they have some awesome cars doiong some awesome things. It's freaking great. The also feacture cars like the 750EVO 911, and the Lingerfelter Corvette. That's the only thing I have on my mind as of late. Not to mention I have a final exam in Marketing in about 1hr 30min!!!

Wish me luck. And enjoy the videos if you run across them.

Brandon85-944... This year the USA version, Gumball 2003, ran San Francisco-Vegas-Tucson-San Antonio-New Orleans-Miami... a 3000 mi,
6-day party.

Last year it was the other way, NYC-LA, with fun spots in between. Gum-
ball isn't a bad aspiration.

By the sound of it CJFusco I must have missed the post on it. That's what I get for not checking around.

Haha, I was just a little surprised that you haven't heard about it... the Gumball's been around for years.

Sorry if I was a little condescending; i was having a rotten day at that point.

All it is is a wealthy mans street race. If you call out street racers and then say you want to do the gumball then you are pretty much a hippocrit.

I've seen the video, nice cars.
