A '69 was my first car, bought new for ~$1300. Only british car I ever owned, although plenty of my brother's mini parts went on to it. Soon after, I discovered Volvo wagans, then BMW 2002s.

I caught C&C when it was still in Crystal Cove back when they still called it the Rich Bastards Car Show.

They've started one here in 'Vegas but it doesn't compare yet...

They ain't got no HEMI!



Have a look at this twin plug Hemi. And those aren't Holley carbs, just throttle bodies as under the intake, it's plumbed for fuel injection!

I met this guy a couple of months agoc( the grey hat on the right). He built this car himself, and had just recently arrived from driving it all the way from South Carolina. The body is hand beaten aluminium built by him. It was quite broad, and looked wide enough to carry 3 decently. After about 3000 miles I didn't see any cracks in the paint or body anywhere. Impressive.

Time for a bump.

One day when I showed up there was a row of JDM RHD Integras Type R's.
At least I found it amusing.


I like seeing things like this. Just don't let off the gas mid-corner.



Here is a nice clean FZR750R OWO1



Dan Gurney and friend showed up



Always room for a nice wire wheel



Or a Desmo



Nice old GSXR

I was watching a program on HDTheater today about the Mille Miglia with footage of a vintage tour combined with old stuff and commentary by Sterling Moss, among others. IIRC, that car was in it. (I was struck by the "Colorado Grand" sticker on the side.)
