Raw Vintage Trans Am Footage from the 2010 Coronado Speed Festival
2 minutes and 30 seconds of raw and Shaky video of Historic Trans Am Race cars (group 9) returning to their makeshift garage at the 2010 Coronado Speed Festival. This was taken when the cars were returning from the first practice session on 9/29/10. Note all the people walking through the "garage" area, it's open to all spectators... a great perk of the Coronado Speed Festival. If you're looking for quality footage, this isn't it. But, even the best footage couldn't convey the brutal awesomeness of these machines. I highly recommend attending this two day event if you're a fan of vintage racing.

3 minutes and 34 seconds of raw and Shaky video of Historic Trans Am Racing (group 9) at the 2010 Coronado Speed Festival. Footage was taken next to the wall at turn 9. If you're looking for quality footage, this isn't it. But, even the best footage couldn't convey the brutal awesomeness of these machines. I highly recommend attending this event if you're a fan of vintage racing.

Porsche exhibit tour at the 2010 LA Auto show. 911 Speedster, Cayman R debut
Take a tour of the amazing, unique Porsche exhibit @ the 2010 LA Auto show as I ((shakily)) navigate though this nirvana like oasis on "media day". This footage is raw and uncut. The Cayman R made its grand world premiere, and the new 911 Speedster made its North American debut. The classy showcased 356 is the first Porsche sold in the United States.

512 Road Race Mustang @ Laguna Seca - Corkscrew Invitational 2010
My 1967 Mustang Fastback dedicated Road Race car @ Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca for the Corkscrew Invitational Race - September 18/19 2010.
The car has gone through many changes since the last posted videos. The front suspension has been completely redesigned to allow wider front tires and improved suspension geometry. The engine is essentially the same, though now uses a belt drive for the camshaft rather than a timing chain.
This event was great fun. It had been ~12 years since this car was driven at Laguna Seca due to the strict sound restrictions at the track. This event was held on one of the allowed open sound weekends and was a great success. Thanks to Hooked On Driving, the Nor-Cal Shelby Club, and the other clubs that made this event happen.
This particular footage is from the session before the race on Sunday. Unfortunately the camera stopped after a lap or two of the race, so I don't have complete footage. We did finish in first place, with a very fast Panoz in a close second. It was a great race, I passed the Panoz cleanly in turn 9, and worked hard to stay in front for the last three or so laps.
This is the same video file as my last upload, this time using a much better encoder.
