Why Did The Bear Go Over The Mountain?

Who cares? Besides, it's the getting there that really matters. It's time again to get ready for Pikes Peak and the La Carrera Panamericana cars were so sucessful at being a huge crowd pleasure that we have been invited back again.

Tell me this isnt a bitchin example of hangin her out on the edge.

Colorado Springs, January 12----America’s long love affair with its automobiles continues this summer in Colorado Springs in a big way. That’s because Vintage Cars will be back again for the 87th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on July 19.

Vintage entries will be coordinated by Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing, a non-profit club of more than 500 members who are vintage racing enthusiasts. The club’s primary focus is the organization, production, and sanctioning of vintage car races in the Rocky Mountain region. It has over 500 eligible cars that are three decades old or more, including Austin Healey, Corvette, Lotus, MG, Mini, Porsche, Triumph, Formula Ford and Formula Vee. In addition, some more exotic and perhaps lesser known names such as McLaren, Lola, Abarth, Morgan, Siata and Zink participate in their events. Engines range from less than 1000cc to more than 6 liters of
“ground-pounding” force.
