Love and appreciation for Royal Purple, who kindly offered a great vantage point for photographers, the press, and VIPs... it was very appreciated!

A walk through the pits


VERY clean and well organized, everyone's work areas, not just this or that crew, all of them












Subaru was a major sponsor for this weekends Red Bull GRC rallycross







A big Airstream is a cool way to bring the merchandise to events



San Pedro still runs old old fashioned looking street car

the other amazing ones are

Dormitory = Dirty room
Evangelist = Evil's agent
 Desperation = A rope ends it
 The Morse Code = Here come dots
Mother-in-law = Woman Hitler
Snooze alarms = Alas! No more Z's.
 Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one
Clint Eastwood = Old West action
Slot machines = Cash lost in 'em
Conversation = Voices rant on
Norwegians = Swen or Inga?
the piano bench = Beneath Chopin

A friend of mine decided to take the vehicle least likely to be stolen when in Tijuana...



Now does that look like anything anyone would want? Or try to steal?


he came back to find the door unlocked, and that in the ignition


All I can think, is that this must seem like an easy truck to steal, easy to go unnoticed, or maybe it has no steering wheel locking mechanism, and then thieves would know that it's only got the ignition that will pose a problem for them

Bizarre. http://perichbrothers.blogspot.com/2015/09/mini-truck-love.html?

the 8th Targa Florio held May 11-12, 1913, Aquila Italiana was an Italian car manufacturer that produced maybe 1,500 vehicles total from 1906 to 1917.




  Gotta love the humongous searchlight on car #26.


Thanks to Steve! He was curious about the banner photo I ran today, and figured out what maker, what race, and so on. No, I have no idea how he does that!
