At Portland Cars & Coffee this morning, the World of Speed Museum was awesome enough to fire up their 1979 NHRA championship winning Markley-Bruins Top Fuel dragster. It was insanely loud and insanely awesome! Ear plugs were a must.
The theme for the featured area this morning at Portland Cars & Coffee was red, white, and blue cars. They were all lined up in rotating order and it looked great!
Here’s a photo I snagged of my blue Viper next to a white Lamborghini and a red Viper.
I snagged a pretty sweet parking spot at yesterday morning’s Cars & Coffee at the awesome World of Speed Museum near Portland. Great weather too — it was originally supposed to be super hot in the morning but some nice cloud cover saved us, although it did get into the high 90s by the end of the day!
Last weekend I went autocrossing for the second time and I’m as hooked as ever! It’s such a blast, especially now that I have a 6 point racing harness in my car. It makes it a lot easier to feel what the car is doing as you’re held in very securely.
I still have a long way to go though — I see so many mistakes watching this video!
A guy I know through my local Cars & Coffee car meetup event was kind enough to take a bunch of beautiful photos of Viper, right after it was fresh back from getting paint correction at a detailer. They turned out gorgeous!
You can find all of the pictures on Flickr, but I’ve also mirrored them here for easier viewing:
If you’re looking for something to listen to, then I highly recommend these! Here’s an example one:

Props to my co-worker Sara Rosso for getting me hooked on these!
