Road Rally Anyone?

David & Ellie Brock want to put on another of their fabulous Road Rallies, but would like to get at least 5 cars (and hopefully a lot more) to do the event.

These are fun rallies, just follow the somewhat cryptic instructions that lead you around local streets where you have to take several required pictures. The winner is the one who finishes closest to the mileage that the Brocks took to travel the route. We have 3 proposed dates, April 20, September 21 and October 19.

If you are interested doing a rally, please comment below with which date, or dates, you can do it on.

They need at least a couple months to something like this up, so we will need an answer on the April 20th date in the next couple of weeks.

Strange Cars In A Strange Land In A Strange Time

The cars, American Land Yachts. The land, Jolly Ol’ England. And the time, 1973. Six minutes of a very stylish English gentleman expressing disdain for the use of Detroit Iron to navigate their tiny roads.

Chrome Gas Flap

I have a 2012 True Red PRHT which I bought used. It came with a chrome gas flap. I prefer a same color gas flap and would trade my chrome flap for a True red flap.
