Nice work, shoot more and lurk some internets. Photography is fun. Also try to challenge yourself and shoot only in manual mode. Auto mode is for when your subject is already airborne and you just picked up the camera.

I don't remember what is in it now. It was my shop teachers car when I was at Stellys.94-98 it has been on propane for at least 15years now. the people that own it now are the 3rd owners, maybe 4th

It had potentail to be an awesome day. Got started slowly, did my quick shiddy four runs and had to head for the ferry. Stupid course for work.

I wished I could have stayed, I could have gotten so much faster on the new azenis and after a stiffened my shocks?? WOW!

I suppose I porbably DNFed all my slow crap runs.

.......but next time.....

and man is it a fast car. proves how a good driver with a simple setup=fast.

yeah Hamish and Jim's '84 C4 Vette is insane. It has the original engine, but running on propane, huge slicks, etc. They always get first when they show up.

haha awesome i didnt do as bad as i thought!

That course was one of the most fun i've driven. I would love to concentrate a little more and see what times i could really get.

I just needed to hit less cones and keep the power planted. I only had one clean run!

Thanks everyone who came out, its nice to see and hang out with people I actually know.

pics will be up some time this week.
