Yeah, yeah, I'm a day late. I figured you all probably saw enough of it yesterday that you didn't need another one, plus I was busy. It was nice meeting all of you that I did meet (both Opponauts and friends), and for those of you that I didn't, I'll be sure to find you next time and give you a big hello. If you had a car in the show, its probably in here, but no promises. Additionally, in the process of going through my newly-found camera, I found some pretty sweet pictures, so enjoy those too.
Why did I choose this cover photo? Because it perfectly symbolizes Caffeine and Carburetors for those of you who have never made it. Here is a racing-badged Ford GT, parked next to a minty NSX. And no one even looks. They blend like a Camry. That's because, all together, there were 5 Ford GTs on the day. Its insanity, cars that you've dreamed of seeing quickly become invisible, especially to the more quirky and weird cars, like this Fiesta:
Or like the now-Oppo-famous SR20ed Datsun Roadster I've posted about. A full year later, and it finally returns. This time, there is no shortage of photos from all angles.
This is the second Saleen S7 I've seen in my life. They're large.
The two ST's that flew by us on the Merritt, and the Elise that was part of the convoy of friendship that was formed on the way down. Look how small it looks.
My car, coincedentally parked next to the ultra-low mileage Alfa owned by Mr.505Turbeaux. On the left of that is the Mercury owned by Shelbyracer78.
Offroadkarter's ridiculously badass Marauder. Dude, my god.
Always thinking of you, Bandit.
Think I might have gotten you on the way out, Jan.
As a thank you for viewing, here's some of the stuff I found on my camera.
The Turner-Modified Frost Gray M3. The light was right, the track was right...it was just right.
A brief justification-This picture is at Infineon Raceway, on November 2nd, 2010. Those are the first Challenger 392s ever made, about to undergo their first pre-release testing and thrashing. That's right, I got a spy picture at the age of 13. +1 for family vacations equalling visits to Laguna Seca and Infineon.
