    2x2 and the GrapVine

    I have crazy luck... sometimes bad, sometimes good. I suppose better than no luck. Driving over the Grapevine on the 5 Northbound I tried to go around some fellow motorists. As you all know these cars have their own gravity. As in attracting satellite cars hovering with cellphones plastered to...

    Mike's Build

    Haven't been the best poster of information on any of my former projects, but going to give this one a shot. It would be nice to have a photo history of the build - I don't tend to be good at keeping up with pictures either so maybe this will force me to do it. I have been modifying cars and...

    A new SLC is hitting the streets & Tracks

    Where to start? OK, the beginning. Since I was a little kid I have loved (and worked on ) cars. As an adult I have almost always had "a project" car to keep me busy. I got into drag racing for a while and then about 10 years ago (thankfully) I found track driving. Since then I have been...

    Can Am cars at Long Beach Grand Prix

    Well it's taken me a while to start this thread but here we are.

Since the Toyota Celebrity Race has been nixed, the organizers did the right...
