The center of the automotive universe shifted this weekend to Sonoma Raceway, where we had, concurrently, Radwood 3, LeMons and Billetwood. It was a glorious weekend for the many Jalops. I participated in Radwood, with my new cool ride. You will likely guess which one is mine.

Ugly 1990 Mosler Consulier GTP is Ugly- Just Sayin' Ugly 1990 Mosler Consulier GTP is Ugly- Just Sayin'
