Went up to Monterey Bay, CA for the Historics again. It was pretty fun this year. John, Mark, Karl and I went up for the 4 day trip. We took John's Ford Escape, Karl's 2002 and Mark's MR2 Spyder.
Using the MR2 Spyder Frunk
Karl pissing off the side of a mountain
Mark doing a dusty burnout and subsequently John and I nearly getting
killed in a head-on collision
The current model Toyota F1 race car setting the Laguna Seca all time
lap record of 106.309. He (I think it was Ricardo Zonta) beat it 3 times
that weekend, besting the 2001 record (Honda Champ car) by more than a
second. And more than 4 seconds faster than the Ferrari in 2003.
A million Coopers on the track
Seeing a Mazda RX-792P Start, warm up and rev.
Watching a Lister pretty much destroy everyone on the track:
Seeing Old Yeller again:
Hearing a Lexus pace car tear up the track with it's super loud
Actually seeing under the hood of a Toyota 2000GT...they started them
and drove them around the track. Holy shit!
Couple of funny plates and stickers:
Seeing the 2 under-hood urinals in the new Mustang GT500. LAME ENGINE
And some awesome driving:
