Which one? I've still been driving the chit out of the speedster. Had our most recent race about 3 weeks ago in my home town.


I'm making slow progress on the touring. I've got just about enough stuff powder coated and painted that I'm going to be able to start going back together with it here pretty soon.

Also gave the Toyota some love last year. Went into the top end of the motor and checked everything out. Did some paint work with some custom engraving on the valve covers



and that stock intake just wasn't doing its part any more so I added a little blower to it......

Also got to visit a pretty nice garage last weekend. He's the president of our local T club. He's got about 40 T's and 91 cars total. Sorry about the rotation. Photobucket is being dumb.



One of his fire trucks. He has a few



The Porsche with black wheels just so I could see what it looked like. I'll probably powder coat the 15" phone dials that are on it black.


Got to go to the Long Beach Grand Prix a couple weeks ago and watch the race from the 15th floor of a hi rise condo over looking the race. First drift race I've seen in person as well.









Also, it was pretty cool being that this was the first time I've been back to Long Beach since I left in '97. The Grand Prix was the first car race I ever went to as a kid with my dad when I was about 5. That would have been around '93. Really enjoyed the entire weekend away and came home with car.

Got the primary bike back together. I was "shredding the gnar" too hard a couple weeks ago and ruined a rear wheel.

A picture of yesterday's ride.

Looks like a really nice place for rattlesnakes.

Yeah, we usually see about 1 per ride in the summer if we're on the trails in the morning. We ride a local bike path at night and it's not un-usual to see 3-4 laying on the path.

This is where we ended up this weekend.







Also did a short ride on Sunday with the wife (her first MTB ride)
We didn't break any speed records but the view was better than normal

Yeah, it's been on my bucket list and a deal came up so we jumped on it. Only have about 10 states to cover and I'll have visited all 50.
