Thousands of sports cars to line funeral procession for Missouri boy who died of cancer

The staging area at Six Flags is filling up.

Awesome thing the community is doing for Alec. Sounds like he was like me, a gearhead, to the bone. If I were closer I would be sure and be there in my car, for Alec.

Since I cannot be there, here are a couple photos for him.



Photo by me.

Osteosarcoma is a terrible form of cancer, and the treatment is quite difficult. No one should have to endure such discomfort.


One of the member clubs of the ICSCC that I race with, Cascade Sports Car Club of Portland, Oregon hosts a meet and donates the proceeds to the Doernbecker Foundation, a hospice for terminally ill youth cancer patients. Drivers who have a passenger seat in their cars can volunteer to give one of these kids a ride around the race track. This is a shot just before I took this young boy for a few laps. Sadly, most of these children die before adulthood.

Good thing I had on shade, as there were tears in my eyes as I thought about the suffering this young boy, and all the others there that day, were enduring.

Think of the mental state of mind to wrestle a car around a racetrack and get it so hooked up it picks up the inside front tire like this:

You could go the Aussie way and call me 'sav'. I prefer to live in ignorance as to why they choose to name me after a sausage

I saw the specs leaked a few days ago. Looks like a nice car, but perhaps a bit on the slow side? Plenty quick enough for public roads, but the Mustang name carries a certain heritage..

Weber has released more info about their pellet pooper, available early next year.
Here's a first review, looks pretty neat except for the price.
