Life's Journey

CLICK TO SEE ALL THIS PICTURE We sure lived up to the bumper sticker on the back of the car on this trip. First outside of Puebla Mexico we were rear ended by another race team while we were pulling up to a toll booth. The race car was on the trailer and the rear end took all the damage. we thought for sure we were out of the race before it began. The next day in Cotzy short for a name I never in pronounce in my lifetime we checked the car over and drove it the rest of the way to Tuxtula. Once there many teams offered to help get the car fixed by any means necessary. We decided to leave the car alone and see if we could get it past tech inspection, the car passed and we were ready to race. We went for the qualifying and felt the car was good to race and it drove really good all we had to do was to go to the start line the next day and race for the next seven days. Little did we know the next day we were in for the ride of our lives. That will be the next post.

LOVE IT! That's the quote my husband sent me a year or so ago to assure me we were doing the "right thing" getting involved and setting our sites on "doing" La Carrera in our 1965 Nova II SS. Oh Man! This year, making the drive to Aguacalientes, Tom O. and Team 426 were laughing and discussing the exact same quote. It's a good one! Very appropos! =)
