If you are reading this, it must be springtime and time for my annual trip around the country on Brock Yates’ One Lap of America. My good friend Bill Guy is not able to join me this year which is a disappointment, but Alex, my son, was able to get out of grad school and our schedules aligned and after 10 years of me going on this event, he is able to join me. It should be a good trip for both of us. For this last few years I have been driving either my 05 MINI, ......

Dan Gurney, the all American racer turns 82 today. It has been my pleasure to meet Dan a few times over the years. Most recently I met him at the Amelia Island Concours, where Dan was in attendance as a judge and member of the GT40 50thanniversary seminar. He is always a gentleman and always willing to take time to talk to you. Happy Birthday Dan! ......

The Who The Who will be at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Feb. 28, 2013 with Elvis Costello for the Who Cares concert to benefit teen cancer America and the Sloan-Kettering Cancer center. It will be my tenth time to see The Who since 1969. Ironically, I will be spending more on this one concert than all my previous Who tickets combined. It is for a good cause, and I get to see Pete and Roger in the deal. The group may be getting smaller, but the tale ......

On this day, forty years ago, January 23, 1973, Neil Young performed at Madison Square Garden in New York City to a sold out audience. His opening group was Linda Ronstadt. I had orchestra seats in row 24. Neil Young played a great set until someone came on stage and handed him a piece of paper. The note indicated the following: At 12:30 Paris time today [Tuesday], January 23, 1973, the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam was initialed by Dr. ......

These new studio photos are from an Aston Martin DB6 that is undergoing a complete restoration. These photos show the original hand built aluminum body in all it's raw detail. There will be more restoration done to bring this DB6 back to life. Once all the work is done, it will be painted and looking like it was originally. It was a great day in the studio and I am looking forward to the completed product and another day in the studio with a DB6. ......
