SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT
This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me
really excited about this race way back in 2003.
My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for
second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg
resulted in a 9th place finish.

I finished painting this in Jan 2013. Removed the hood, deck, all trim,
bumpers, and doors. All panels were stripped and bodyworked (not much
bodywork needed). Painted 2013 Toyota/Lexus Sunset Bronze Mica (runs $900+
I also sent out the w/o and v-top mouldings and had all orig clearcoat
removed. Then they were polished. New non-padded top. Sprayed the 1/4"

2013 Outing at High Plains Raceway in the LS1 Porsche 944
A few laps at Colorado's High Plains Raceway on July 14, 2013. Car is my
'89 Porsche 944 with an LS1 in it. It was a bit down on power this event,
but still doing ok. I'm running Toyo RA1 race tires, they were going away
at the end of the session, lots of drifting at that point. The white 944
also has an LS1, weighs 500lbs less than me and was on BFG R1's. The Cobra
weighs 1000lbs less than me (!!) was on Kumho 710's and makes way more
power and torque than I do.
