Feb. 27: Yesterday was a bit of a sad day for Stewball and us. We had to pull off the World Race 2011 decals from the doors and put on the numbers for the Trans-Am Challenge. Now we are looking forward to this rally in May, but we have such memories of our 2011 Challenge. Our doors look a little bare with just these small white numbers. Here are the before and after photos.
I think this actually is our first exposure to British humor. The accompanying letter said they were using small numbers this time to assure a “low profile in the US”. Low profile? Picture this, a group of 50 cars, including 4 Bentleys, 9 Mercedes, 4 Porsches, 6 Jaguars, 1 Aston Martin, and 1 1916 Lancia Theta-what ever that is- and of course only 1 67 Air-cooled VW Beetle. This has got to be a joke. Do you think the state police won’t notice? Starting in NY, I can just see the troopers calling the next state and saying,
I’m just saying…
Then there are the rally harnesses. If you do get stopped, just try to convince the police that, “but sir, I wasn’t racing” when they see you securely held in by a 4-point G-Force harness!
We are nearly ready. See you on the road to Alaska,
