    1985 Toleman F1

    This car hasn't seen a race track in a long time, and likely never will again. Stripped of its engine & tranny guts (though the block & housing are still there), it has become a work of art on the wall of my neighbor's house. The car has no chassis tag, but we believe it to be TG185-03...

    Hopefully this works. I've just put this up, so the video is not availabel yet as I type this. The full track is four and a hlaf miles long, but they can break it into two tracks (called the east and west tracks) of approximately 2.2 miles each. This is the east track. I'm driving a Ford...

    Uploading videos

    I tried to upload a 9.6 MB mpg video and it's telling me it failed. No reason identified. The file shouldn't be too big - it says it will take them up to 19.07 MB... What am I doing wrong???

    Heroes of Speed @ Miller Motorsports Park

    Vintage races at the new Miller Motorsports Park in Utah August 3-5, 2006 I must say I was disappointed by the turnout - both from participants as well as spectators. Maybe I've been spoiled by the Monterey Historics over the years. This was the first vintage event at this track (and a...

    ALMS Miller Motorsports Park

    The ALMS guys came to Utah last weekend for the first automotive spectator event at the new track. Here are some photos. It's a pretty spectator-friendly track, as all of these photos were taken from normal spectator viewing positions (no press/photo credentials required). First, some...

    Miller Motorsports Park

    Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in of--topic, but since the guy owns 4 originals GT40s and 11 Cobras (including one of the 7 Daytona Coupes), there's at least some GT40 connection... Larry H. Miller, who is probably best known to you as the owner of the Utah Jazz basketball team, is...

    What kind of critter is this?

    This guy showed up in my squirrel trap this morning, and I have no idea what he is so took some pics before I let him go. Looks kind of like a giant kangaroo rat or something. Anybody know?

    Stolen car

    Since SAAC has posted the information on their website, I guess it's OK for me to let you guys know why I haven't posted anything for several weeks. My car (along with the trailer it was in & the Bronco pulling it) was stolen from the parking lot of the Ypsilanti Marriott sometime overnight...

    Timing a Weber-based engine

    Here is what I am being told regarding setting timing on my engine (289 w/4x44IDF Weber carbs & no vacuum advance): Weber-based engines like a lot of initial timing, and of course every engine is different so you don't just set it to a fixed reading with a timing light. The suggested...

    Barron's ad

    Barron\'s ad I'm running behind in my reading, so just noticed this. There's a 4-page (!) ad for the Ford GT in the May 17th issue of Barron's. It's in the Technology Week section. Pages T8 and T9 show a red streak across the center of the page, causing the text (stock quotes) on the page to...

    Am I the only one who can't post or reply in the new Gallery section? Everything's grayed-out. I'm guessing I'm not the only one, as I would have expected a little more activity in there...

    SAAC Las Vegas

    February 13, 14, 15. Details are here . Hoping to have my car on the track for this event. It seems a little late to be making hotel reservations, however. I don't know if it's just because it's Valentine's Day weekend, or if htere is something else going on in Vegas at that time, but it's...
