Targa Newfoundland Part Deux

Four days in. Getting serious now. Stage in my town today, got some great shots.

http://s228.photobucket.com/albums/e...ndRallyRacing/



Check that out. The team's Photobucket so they can work on the site anywhere. There are four years worth of Targa albums there, in 07 and06 Dad is in the yellow Subaru Legacy, in 04 and 05 it was a red Honda Civic hatch.

Pics from the show later.

Some nice cars in that group. Let's see, I'll take the first-gen 911 targa, both BMW 2002s, the little Nova, the Austin Mini, the Datsun 240z, Volvos P1800ES and 142, the Cobra, and... oh, what the hell, the Lotus Elise too.

Only one Volvo, X. And better you have the Lotus than those guys, they were pissed last year cause Dad beat them in the Subaru.

EDIT: Damn, man, you were right.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

You seem to be the only one bored with it, Randya. This is Foo after all, so I'm sure there will be topics that you don't agree with. The other posters seem to be enjoying it and if it doesn't catch interest, it'll roll off the page and go poof.

If it takes up too much space Tom feel free to delete it and I'll link to the pictures instead.

I would really appreciate it if you could resize them. And if you have Photoshop, optimize them for the web.

Brian, I will certainly do that. May be Monday or so, because I'm on a slower computer than usual, but it will be done.

That's fine. I prefer that over links. Does Photobucket have a resize option?

Why don't you put these all in an album on photobucket and link us to it You can do a remix with tunes even.

By the way, they're all links because I was stripping the IMG tags to shrink the bandwidth usage for the 56K users (Dialup).
