Morning Gang,

I plan to be at the theater by 6:10, I don't want to take a chance with finding parking. I guess we just all meet there, we are all coming from so many different areas. Looking forward to it!

I'm off to Specialty this morning to change diff and trans oil and wash the Knox trip bugs off.

I really enjoyed THE GREEN HELL, the history was amazing to say the least and the archival video was just too cool. It traces the roots and beginning of the "ring" in 1925 all the way up to the present.

For me, the Formula 1 years from 1970 to 1980 brought back memories, as that is when I got interested in racing and then my own, so I followed the Jackie Stewart years, mainly through Road & Track magazine.

"You sort out the men from the boys in the wet; it's still true today," Stewart says. "This race at the Nürburgring is a good example. You can't make any mistakes at all when it's wet!"

As we raced in the rain at our Solo events, no matter what, SMOOTH is the key and Jackie embodied that. He destroyed the competition in the 1968 Gran Prix there.

Try to catch it if you can, you will not be disappointed.

My buddy Mark took in the Canadian National Rally Championship - Rocky Mountain Rally - west of Calgary last weekend and caught this;

A Datsun 1200, with what appears to be Ford Escort rally flares. Additionally the rear suspension was also a Ford Escort rear axle and 4 link set up on coil overs. But get this - powered by an FJ20! Foo Yeah!!

Not car related, but still fun (for you drummers, it's good old Bernie Purdie). He is full of life!
