One GREAT Drive Today!!

Image
Just had one of the best drives of my life.! Just drove down Hwy 1 from Monterey to SLO. Beautiful scenery, a great driving road, and no traffic!! ( I left at 6:45am to avoid the traffic) An amazing drivers car too. I made the trip in record time.. I don't want to brag but before I left Monterey I had two cups of coffee and I made it to S.L.O. Without stopping to pee..... At my age that is FAST!!!   I only had to pass 5 cars the whole trip. Most I came up on so fast all I had to do was blink my lights and they pulled right over. I did come up behind a new Shelby GT500 who thought he would give me a run so he sped up. I was right on his tail.... I kicked it down two gear so the Turbos spooled up and as soon as there was a short straight I floored it and blew by him so fast I think I scared him... with in a few seconds he was gone from my rear view mirror.. Love driving this car... makes me feel like a much better driver than I am...  Jason

Monterey Car Week, Saturday

Dear Family & Friends, Today was one long day!! From 7am to 10pm non stop... Sometimes this business is actually work.. Bright and early I was off to the track and worked our vendor booth until 3pm... The crowds were decent and we talked to lots of new and old customers.. The day was certainly good for business. Saw a  lot of old friends too. The hard part was I HATE being at a race track and not actually racing... That was hard to take.. After the track I went back to the hotel and cleaned up for an informal Jaguar party downtown. This has been a regular event for the last ten years or so. Again met lots of our old customers and had a couple of drinks. From there I had a quick dinner and went to the RM Auction... IT is amazing the values of collector cars these days... I can remember when if a car reached a bid of $100,000 that was shocking.. Tonight bids of $1,000,000 or more were absolutely common!! From there I had arranged to meet a knew customer from Alberta, Cana

Cars, cars, and more cars... can there be to much of a good thing??

Dear Family & Friends, Another hard day of "work".... First off in the morning I went to a large Porsche car show.. I have never seen so many Porsches in one place. I was entered in the display class only so I was not worried about getting there to early. Besides who goes to a show at 7am?? So I went out for some breakfast and coffee and while I am looking at Facebook on my Ipad I started seeing photos and videos already posted from the show showing the hundreds of cars that were already there!! these Porsche owners are fanatics!! The show as interesting because it showed one of the very early model Porsches, a very humble sports car to the latest 918 model, at 750+hp and $1,200,000++!! The 918 is an amazing display of technology. If you ever have to get to town at 200+ mph this is the car to do it.. I visited with several friends from the SLO area and we had lunch.  After lunch I drove out on the 17 mile drive to the Inn at Spanish Bay. A very swank hotel rig
