. . is alive and well in most classes of vintage racing. I'm wholly endorsing a weekend spent hearing, smelling, and looking at old cars that have been spared the hell that is a museum.

I split the job early on Friday, humped the VW 350 miles across the land of taverns and roadkill, and spent the weekend at the VSCDA event at Road America.

There were probably 250 cars, and, of course, the greatest thing is the variety: 1933 Studebaker Indy Racer, 1969 Lola T70, 1932 Alfa Romeo Monza, 1994 Benetton Ford. Ther were so many cars; the Austin Healyes, the Trans-Am Camaros, the MG's, the 'Vettes, the Morgans, the Triumphs, Devon, Allard, Elva, Lotus . . . and to see the investment some of these lucky bastards had made in order to tote and maintain their treasure was almost as amazing as the cars screaming around the track.

I stayed 2 nights at a great little b&b in the village, had the world's greatest brats, and got in on the lunchtime touring session; 45 minutes on North America's greatest road course in my own wheels.


PS - to the guy in the green Z3, sorry you spent so much on such a gutless car, but remember, it's car AND driver . . .
