    I was there after work. The most interesting thing I saw was a steam engine car, though I did also get quite a kick out of the 4 minty fresh Vega Cosworth's and the V8 AMC Eagle.

    The weather was perfect that weekend for the cruise. The car that made me ask why was the 4 door Vette.

And with more looking to realize that the car had been used in both last year. These kind of details make the picture more interesting. Don't spare us the details, boys.



    Here is the Richie Ginther/Phil Hill 1953 Ferrari 375MM Spyder in the 1954 Carrera Panamericana.
    I think I found out what it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHLcWuTcLb4

    I wouldn't really call 190's beautiful... But they're cool cars for sure.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Nice. Now they just need to add a flux capacitor and the transformation will be complete.

    I LOVE the Miura. Most of Lambo's other cars are just cool, not beautiful.
    Say what you will about the color and whatnot, but this resto-mod 800HP '67 Mustang is pretty bad-***
