The Blue Ghost

Drew Sidaris received a Honda Trail 50 minibike at the formative age of eight, and his neighbor at the time had a full size dirt bike that he’d compete with at the old Indian Dunes compound before the motocross tracks were closed off. He’s wanted to be a racing car driver ever since his childhood, and was finally able to realize that dream when he and a good friend bought this Chevy 210 and set about getting it ready for the Carrera Panamericana.

Edgefield Cruise-In on the Square

Members Attending: Ralf & Annie Wilms, Tom Varallo, Stacey & Cindy Timmerman, Dennis & Karol Mason, Brian & Donna Bogardus, David Adcock and Sarah Acord.
Guests Attending: Pat Charlotte

After Rally Master Stacey gave his Driver’s Meeting there were seven cars ready to roll. We were missing the Masons though. Soon, the texts rolled in that they were a little late getting going and would meet us in Edgefield. Over a half dozen Miatas set out on a zig-zaggy route through the back roads of Edgefield County that only a person who grew up around there would know, fortunately Stacey was just that person.

When we got to downtown Edgefield, Stacey directed the larger half of the cars to a spot close to the square for parking. Ralf, Annie, Sarah, David and Pat were going to leave after the breakfast. The three of us whom agreed to be in the “show” were directed to a spot, just off the square and right next to our breakfast spot, the Park Row Market.

In typical Club fashion, we dragged three of the 4 tables outside on the sidewalk together so we could chat, eat and chat some more. The Masons showed up after everyone had finished eating and soon after we pretty much started to split up to walk the square and ogle the cars.

Thanks for setting this up Mr. Timmerman, let’s do this again next year.

Apologies to the Wilms as I forgot them in the original posting. It is not like their car was discrete and forgettable, it is YELLOW and I didn’t spent 15-20 minutes discussing Oregon with Ralf, it is just that there is a hole in my head where the rain gets in…
 

Miatas 4 Sale

Stacey Timmerman says his neighbor is still trying to sell his 2015 Miata and has knocked a bit off the price. It’s a soft top, automatic transmission, with cloth interior, AM/FM/CD, and comes with a cover. It’s basically like new, 7,200 miles asking $17k $15,500. Contact Mike Baggett, cell 803-634-1313.

Stacey was also made aware of a 92 red NA at $3,500 or less in which he says the pictures & description look good. He did not see the car in person, but if someone has a hankering for a good NA it might be worth looking at. Call Tommy Eubanks 706-414-0111 for details. He will have it at the Cruise In as well as a few of his other cars.

On the way back from Augusta this afternoon I noticed a silver NC for sale at Phillip Hawkins.

Gambler 500 Miata

As some of you may know, Donna and I just got back from visiting southern Oregon, well, as it turned out while we were in the town of Klamath Falls it was the epicenter of several car related events, only one we knew about. One of the surprises we stumbled on was the Gambler 500, this video was shot during the 2017 event.
