Happy Holidays!

All the best for the holidays! What's funny is that the holidays make me think about my race car... the time I could be spending working on it if I had a garage.

There is not much going on car-wise. The snow removal service scraped my blue Civic and left a scratch on the fender and bumper.

I am thinking more and more about the 2009 season. I really really want the race car to be in SCCA ITS trim by late spring. I also want the car to always be drivable (as it is now) so I don't think I'll undertake any improvements that will require disassembling major components. I just confirmed that I have to modify the roll cage, but Pat Boyer should be able to do that fairly easily.

Here is a pic of me with the race car in 2008 and as it will look again when I remove all the decals this spring:

Have a great holiday season!

Bathrust 1000

I downloaded some cool footage from the Bathurst 1000 km race from 1976 and 1980. What a cool event. The cars were also quite neat. Here is a photo of the race-winning Holden Commodore of Peter Brock.

Not much is going concerning my cars. The blue Civic keeps on truckin', the race car is in storage.

There are still some pretty cool cars out on the road even though it's winter:

Jaguar E-type
Aston-Martin DB7
Porsche 997 turbo cabriolet
