Easy peazy. With Tropical Storm Debbie yesterday we got over 6" of rain so it's already full! You shouldn't have a problem finding one online or at your local hardware store though, it's a very basic item. Get some water purification tablets too. Good Luck!

1946 CCM Lady's Roadster... a one owner bike I just gave to my friend who also owns the gorgeous French built Mercier on the other rack.

She loves her loop frames and is as good a mechanic I know so expect this bike to be shining like a new penny really soon.

Picked up some blue Neubaum's to put over the black cork tape I pulled out of the BoC. After wrapping it, I thought it needed some shellac so I parked the bike on the back porch.

Spent the day with Drillium Dude at the Sovren vintage races at Pacific Raceways south of Seattle. Had a couple of hard rain showers come through which put a real damper on the afternoon racing. Didn't matter - we still had a blast. Lots of C&V material

MGB GT - powered by a Ford V8 - this was a really sweet car despite the color:





Lotus Elan



Pantera



Alain Prost McLaren F1 - 1980



1970 Datsun 240Z



Class 4 afternoon race - 1st lap

That's so cool! I didn't know such events existed...

I love that E type. There was a coupe like that in a junkyard in the small (less than 1000 people) town I grew up in. It was 90% complete but beat up/rusty. My dad and I tried talking the owner into selling it to us multiple times but he insisted he was keeping it to restore himself someday. Finally gave up on the thing but last we checked it was still there. Someday...

Here are some more shots of Group 4 (Historic Mid-Bore):













1980 McLaren M29 - ex-Alain Prost:



M29 cockpit:



M29 footwell - tiny feet only (and check out all the Drillium!):



For you fans of trivia, the M29 was actually designed and raced in the latter half of 1979. However, Alain Prost did not join the team until 1980. The chassis was developed during the 1980 season.

This car bears chassis number M29-4, quite possibly denoting it as the car Prost drove to 5th place in the 1980 Brazilian Grand Prix - only his second-ever Grand Prix.

Yeah, I really have to thank Scozim for tipping me to this event - he'd shown me pics last year while I was out staying with him and his family the night prior to the Manastash Metric Century. He made the invite months ago, and after seeing his pics I wasn't going to miss it.

The sound is the best thing - well, other than seeing these cars driven to their limits! But that sound - wow!!

The Jag was one of the best - hard to believe that rumble-and-roar came from a straight-six
