The Tom Merkel’s Cuyama Car Garden
Oppo Rally 2018 is compete and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it went.
Shitty porg selfies are how real pros do their check-ins.
Teams have left the start line and are headed out to find this year’s checkpoints. Among the stops are a haunted bridge, a crashed fighter jet, a mental hospital (just one this year), a prison camp, a missile, the tomb of a knight, and a stop on the Underground Railroad. To follow along check out the #opporally2018…
If anyone can’t compete but wants to hang out for a bit, here’s the locations for the start, finish, and post-rally awards.
I’m trying to decide what my partner and I will drive for the Oppo rally.
Hey hey hey! I’m extending the Oppo Sticker deadline from July 11 to July 16. Also, to help people try making their own designs I’ve uploaded the Oppo logo cookie cutter PSD here. Download it and try it out!
Hey, everybody! We’re now just under 40 days out from Oppo Rally, and that means it’s time to start ordering stickers, it also means CUSTOM OPPO STICKERS ARE BACK!
Registration for July’s Oppositelock Half-Massed Rally have been up for just under a week, and we have our first six entries. Looks like competitors are stepping up their game on bringing interesting cars this year.
We have a date, we have a location (more or less), we have a format. Time to officially get things going.
...unless you can absolutely only make one of the two dates.
If you already voted on a date for Oppo Rally 2018 I hope you like voting for this twice, because I’ve redone the poll!
Was underwhelmed by the sea of beige. Most of the manufacturers left their interesting stuff at home in favor of covering the carpets with as many crossovers as possible. No Toyobaru, no ST or RS, etc. So I left early to scout locations for Oppo Rally.
I’m starting to make plans to do at least one and maybe two Oppo Rallies next year. I want to start with a quick question regarding scheduling. As most may remember the previous Oppo Rally was on Memorial Day weekend. This was good in that the Monday holiday meant an extra day for the more distant competitors to get…
Memorial Day weekend sucks. I’m all about day-long endurance races, but two legs of the Triple Crown in one day, the Nürburgring 24 Hours and NASCAR’s longest race, which goes late into the evening? It’s time for y’all to rock-paper-scissors this out and kick somebody off that weekend. It’s too much of multiple good…
At about 1 am we left from Thomaston, and after a fairly eventful trip (saved a guy by lighting up a deer with my lights that he couldn’t see) we got home about 3:30. I tried to hypermile the ruck home at a constant 60mph,and upon checking the the gas an mileage, I found I got 14.5 mpg on the highway (usual is 12)!
The first (but not last) Oppo Rally is complete, and what a day it was. Everyone had a ton of fun, competition was close throughout, and I didn’t have to deduct any points from anyone for getting a speeding ticket. Here’s how the day unfolded.
I don’t normally
spam link my work at That Other Web Site, but I’ll make an exception for the story of Team Fluffy Bunny Bus of Doom at last weekend’s Oppo Rally.
You’re just jealous, Dot.
Massive thank you to all the teams that came out and took part in my crazy game. It was a lot of fun to meet everyone, and to watch the updates and photos roll in. I’ll have a full write-up with scores and results in the near future.
