Went up to the vintage races at pacific raceways this weekend, had a great time and seen a lot of awesome cars..I will post up some of my fav classics, the mighty GT-40 427 Sideoiler FE and a small block GT-40 and a neater than hell aluminum Porche..It really caught my eye. and so many more.

 

Got to meet and get autograph from Tommy Kendall " Trans am and Nascar driver at one time..Nice guy, he really chatted it up too. If you ever get a chance to go and see the vintages races up at Pacific raceways in Wa, do it!! been to a few of them now and nothing but awesome time. Better than a car show, not only some amazing machines to check out, but most of them hit the track and they halling some arse, i got some footage ill go thru later.

That would be neat for sure to see them on the track again.

Didn't one of the Aluminum Porsche speedsters kill James Dean along with the 1950 Ford coupe that he ran into? The driver of the 50 coupe was not injured Dean died instantly and not much left of the aluminum Porsche. What was left of the car was considered cursed and disappeared.

I was there with my wife yesterday. Had a lot of fun.

It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.

Better plan on it this year... The track will likely not be open next year.
