well everyone, thanks for reading along. Today is the 12th anniversary of starting this blog. 35689 posts of goofing around and sharing some fun stuff about things with wheels


And I guess I will share the first post one more time....


In the beginning, men became fed up with walking.

Then they realized that horses left horseshoes, nails, and piles of manure in the roads

Soon, the marvelous elixir of gasoline was concocted, Firestone discovered the method of vulcanizing rubber.... and the birth of the internal combustion engine happened, roughly about the same time, and Voila! Some smart guy put it all together, and the human race began rolling around with engines powering wagons and the horse became obsolete

The automobile was on it's way to changing human culture, art, and transportation.

For everyone that earlier read 13th anniversary... well, I'm a car guy, not a math guy

    1. Thank you! I may outlive you, but if I do the world will be the worse without you in it going on cross country rides on bikes barely able to make the distance! The blog certainly won't make it as long as I do, I'm certain to stop doing this in the coming years, when I get to working on the two books I'm getting ready to do. When are you going up Pikes Peak?

    1. Time to put those in the laundry, don't you agree? 10 years is even too much to keep wearing a pair of socks, please sir, think of the children!
      Kidding aside, thank you!

    1. thank you! And you're welcome! I feel the same way about people who get to Goodwood and do great coverage, as I've got very little chance of getting to England and seeing it myself
