Looks like you had a good turnout, and I can see it was cold.

I went to the Irvine show this morning, and while Cars & Coffee is sprouting up all over, it's looking like the end of an era at the Motherland. Where it used to be over-flowing with cars, for the 2nd weekend in a row it was barely 1/2 full.

Now that doesn't mean there was nothing to look at though.

There are signs all over the grass area where this guy filmed from and where the guy on the bicycle is stopped that say -"No sitting, standing or stopping on the grass area".

Not my video, caution: Use of the F bomb.

I've been hitting it pretty regularly now that I'm not working weekends anymore. Some days it's half empty, other days it's full, and overflowing.
Just because it's fresh in my mind, yesterday was Alfa day. I have a soft spot for them, as a kid there was an Alfa/Ferrari/FIAT dealer near me, and I was a regular there. I even have a grille from a 60's GTV on my wall.

This is a Zagato bodied 2600. It looked brand new.









The previous week there was this special Alfa:










Here's an original looking Lancia Aurellia V8.

I got at least one good shot. The window of opportunity was very small.
He rode a Harley that had some suspension travel.




He made it look small because he's even bigger in real life than in the myth that surrounds him.

Any guesses?

C'mon you slouches. You missed the first big clue.

Here's another.

That exhaust system and the revised foot controls were probably custom made in the world famous car race shop that does not bear his name in the title.

He also has some renown on two wheels.

No. First you have to at least try to guess who the mystery guy is.
