New US Formula 1 Team?

Well, the hottest rumor in motorsports has been making the rounds on websites and podcasts.  The 2010 F1 season may see a new US based formula 1 team.  Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, USF1 has principals Ken Anderson and SpeedTV commentator Peter Windsor.  Hopefully, they have the financial capital to keep it going until they approach the starting line.  The question is who will drive and what engine will they have.

We Got a New Ride!

Yesterday, Jenn and I went out to Drew Hyundai/VW in La Mesa and test drove a Hyundai Genesis and a few hours later, she was driving our brand new Sapphire Blue Pearl Genesis home.  We love it.  It has all the bells and whistles that we wanted, plus some.   The big surprise to me was the Lexicon audio system.  I looked it up and found that Lexicon is a Harmon company, as in Harman/Kardon and the high end home audio systems.  It sounds really, really, really killer!!!  The only accessory that we don't have yet is the iPod connect cable in order to control the iPod from the system console and I'll be getting that this week.

A Visit to a Private Collection

This last weekend was almost the perfect weekend for a car guy, if you overlook the traffic and the fires in Orange County.
It was warm and a bit breezy on the drive up to Tom Hollfelder's collection. There were about 7 cars in convoy from San Diego. We joined up with the LA Alfa group, including a member from Santa Barbara in a gorgeous 85 GTV6.
