The ole 323 GTX was doin pretty good at Summer Sno-Drift until it wasn’t. Sums it up pretty good actually.
I must admit that I hadn’t been to Sno*Drift in five years. It was a lot of commitment in college, and the weather always proved to be a bit chilly. However, after the humid bug-fest that was Magnum Opus 2016, I wasn’t terribly excited to try out Rally America’s summer version of the ‘Drift. Would it be hot and muggy?…
A quick announcement from the Sno*Drift Board of Directors yesterday:
I GOT TO RIDE IN AN…
NOW! Action shots from Henry Roeters clumsily edited in! Check it out! This was a month ago now, but I’ve been a wee bit busy lately. I took my ‘65 F-100 to its first rally event and ended up working start control at Skyline and Danaher stages with an old friend and a fellow Jalop.
Northern Michigan, first weekend of August! I’m planning on taking the F-100 and volunteering. This will be a single day rally in the Rally America Central Region Championship. Will there be an Oppo presence?
It’s Rally Finland time, and we’re here again to see who has the best idea who’s the best at predicting the result. It could be you! Or even you back there. Yes, even you! But probably not. It’s usually either between Dusty Ventures and You Can Tell a Finn, who are likely to tell us about the Finns.

I surely have, and I’m a few days away from finding out!
So they may have 400cc less than yours, and two more drive wheels, but it’s kind sorta close.
That is all.
At the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood, Travis Pastrana faces teammate David Higgins in equal machinery for the first time. It’s just another day at the office. This is Launch Control, Season 4.
On April, 2016 the Chihuahua Rally Express turned 11 years old and, for the first time in my six years as spectator, I had the opportunity to experience the event from up close. This is what happened:
I have found the best GIF on the internet.
Remember to spectate safely. The life you save may be your own.
All uniquely mildly modified model Ts (and one A) It’s fascinating how familiar yet alien they are. You an definitely see how they pushed out millions of these things. Simple as a rock (in the best ways). Plus how insane they must be for driving them on modern roads. Even if they only take them up to ~35...
So after a month and a half I finally finished my plodding 4-wheel drum brake and wheel bearing refresh. Since I’m running out of time, I sent it to the shop to get the shocks put in tomorrow. It should be ready to drive to Newberry soon! I’m going to be volunteering as a corner marshal up there with a friend who will…
I love RallyCross. For a couple years I drove a beat up MK4 GTI and am building a MK2 Scirocco with a 1.8T swap. Parked next to me at an event on a trailer was a Dodge Omni Rally car. He said he was building a new car and would do away with it for a couple grand. It had done six rallies, including Rim of The World and…
