    Ugh. Why Ferrari would paint any of their cars grey is beyond me.

    I want that truck. Show up at a VARA event, and you would be an instant celeb.

    I was always partial to seeing photos of Pete Lovely's Lotus 49 tow, err, carry vehicle.

    The pics make me feel old. This is a pic of me on the track after my first race. Parents took it using the new "color" camera ahahaha, think it was 1969. When I bought the car (10 Y/o who mowed lawns) it had a Continental engine with direct drive and a fan belt/pulley on the axle brake. One wheel drive, one wheel brake. Want to stop completely, hit the kill switch. I started upgrading immediately!

    At the rate that the McLaren Honda duo has been going this year, they need to start making lawn chairs.
    Fernando agrees.
