So there is a connection with your screen name? (he he)




???
I can't keep up 'cause I have exactly the same "Damn Computer" problem!! (and there is nothing wrong with the computer itself!!!!)
Hmmmm. Are Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Racer and Mrs. jac identical triplets, ya think? Identical twins are known to be telepathic. Or maybe it's a genetic imperative. "Grog, stop playing with that Damn Drum and clean up the cave!"

Here is the connection with my screen name:


I had just passed the BMW in this shot and after a few overtures from the driver to attempt regaining his position he faded in the distance. This was not the first BMW that I beat, nor the last.



Same raceway (Thunderhill near Willows, California) after dispatching the BMW.

I've been racing that car since 1989. It has racing history starting in 1979 (the log book's earliest entry was then). My first full season in 1990 I finished 3rd in the [url=http://www.icscc.com/]ICSCC championship[/img] in E Production. In 1997 I took 1st in the class (a combined ICSCC/SCCA season, the championship was actually awarded by the SCCA Northwest Region).

I have only run a race here or there since 2005, and after an engine crankshaft failure in (I think) 2006 or 2007 have only raced in fellow racer's cars.

Here is a shot of the car in the early 1990's with one of my street Z's.



I have the bodywork to either evolve this car to look like the one in the last photos here, or to use for building one from the ground up. But after building our new home a while back the focus has been on getting the mortgage paid down, so racing is low on the priority list.

You can't convince wifey to live in that car? Did you even try?
