    The Random Photo Thread

    Need a countertop? Taroko Gorge, Taiwan is marble. In the early days, the Nationalist Chinese built their bridges out of marble. Surf related because there was good surf at McCauly Beach when US Forces were stationed on the Island. One simply had to be aware of the very poisonous sea...

    Tiger Woods cut out of his roll-over with the ‘jaws of life’ this morning!

    Steve selected his wife’s ‘new’ 911L to go get the take-out. It had the ‘new’ Sportomatic transmission which he hadn’t previously driven. ’H’ pattern without a clutch pedal, when the driver’s hand was on the shift knob a clutch was electronically engaged. Confusing at first. He always seemed...

    Chinese food in the States not quite like it was in Taiwan (Mandarin and Formosan ‘cuisine’) or Hong Kong (Cantonese). I think the Chinese food industry was sensitive to American tastes and went far lighter on the garlic than what we ate in Asia. True to form, I had to pick up the tab as my...

    Crude Humor (NSR)

    A dog lover, whose dog was a female and "in heat', agreed to look after her neighbors' male dog while the neighbors were on vacation. She had a large house and believed that she could keep the two dogs apart. However, as she was drifting off to sleep she heard awful howling and moaning sounds...

    I wish! We did the time trials route at Holtville maybe 2 dozen times in the 1970s and ‘80s with the PCA. I did get a ride in a 904 and a RSK Spyder that had me giggling like a school girl at the drive-in! Wish I could have driven them!

    Fastest car ride in my life was with my wife driving a track prepared 911S in the 1970s, down the back straight at Holtville a bit over 145 (the car performance trophies in our home are mostly hers). Not as scary as riding with McQueen to get Chinese take-out around 1968-69...

    HA HA! No, they wouldn’t let us use our own cars. They had a fleet of the XKR models for us to use. My driving coach, Davey Jones had wins or Poles at Le Mans, Indy, Daytona, etc., and was very patient with me :)

    Jaguar America invited me to a performance driving academy after I bought a new XKR/S. Turn 1 at LS, a left sweeper is indeed a bit of a challenge after coming down the long straight. The cork-screw is most ‘dangerous’ if you don’t line up properly with the tree opposite the apex. Don’t ask...

    One of my staff, a former US Customs Enforcement special agent and I flew into Cali after doing business in Bogota. He reached out to the Embassy RSO to advise where we would be staying and the general nature of our business... he was called back 45 minute or almost an hour later with the...
