One cool spring day on the Dragon I saw a D type Jaguar at speed. Most likely a replica, but who cares, it looked awesome. You never know what will show up there.

Sweet Dart pics, thanks. What year did you have it at Barber? My peeps and I might have been LeMons racing our 64 Valiant or Dart there...

Yep,

I think Lou / Brian / Rob know that one well.

Maybe that is Jason Ernst's car...

I have no idea what you're talking about, no sir. 8)

Wait a minute, you spent time "looking for" flat and straight? Seriously? My gosh, when I lived there, the best description I ever heard was "it's so flat you can watch your dog run away for 3 days."

Corner carving has always seemed interesting in theory... friends have pointed out that an afternoon of AutoX keeps the excitement up a lot more effectively than a few sporadic 1/4 mile passes... but I haven't been bitten by that bug. Who knows, maybe some day I'll change my devotion about running P265 tires on a daily driver, and see what all the excitement is about at the other church... it could happen.

Wisconsin and NE Iowa are hilly. It is not hard to find places, but if you want 1-2 miles of flat+straight with no surprise driveways, etc, that is a bit harder. If you are in much IL or IN or western IA or... you are good. Now living in the mountains of VA, I think of WI as being a lot like this, but everything is shorter.

Corner carving is pretty darn fun. I started that on roads in WI, took it to tracks in Lalaland (traffic), and continue on roads and tracks in NC and VA.
