Above is a shot down the hood of a 1968 Jaguar E-type, chasing a LeMans-Spec 1956 Austin-Healey 100-4 up a mountain road in western Idaho.

Above is a photo of the four of us together at the top of the mountain after a very "spirited" drive to get there! Is something out of place? The highboy is owned by a guy in Boise that was an SCCA A & B Production Racer back in the 1960's and 1970's. I passed him on a mountain road a few weeks back, and he chased me down to talk sports cars! How cool is that!?! When Lynn (E-type), and Dave (100-4), and I went for a run a week ago today, I was compelled to call Ken and invite him along! The Highboy gave the E-type all he could handle! Needless to say, we all had a great time, and made a new friend.....so.....DRIVE YOUR CARS! You never know what good will come of it...and it's always good!!!!
