In Topic: classic car "reality" shows ??

18 September 2016 - 10:09 PM

 

Waynes show is the only reality show I watch other then mythbusters. His older mechanic should have his own show.


Yes, Roger is a real character! Guy I know, Bill Rutan was on the show when Wayne restored then sold his old Hill Climb car he got from another local guy. VW Bug pan with Porsche motor and tricked out suspension. Held the record at Mt. Washington for decades. Roger and Bill raced against one another in the 50's and 60's.

 

EDIT:  Most people don't know, but the camber compensater (anti-roll device) from a Porsche 356 bolts right onto VW bugs and Kharman Ghia of similar vintage.  Still don't understand how people pay so much for those old, underpowered 356's....??

 

 

Because they stamped a number on every part and they are now collection worthy.

Well, the sail makers are going to love this race. Lots of carnage at the finish. I love the fact that two 7.9's handled it without issues. One lost rig, two kites, six headsails I counted coming into the harbor. Finish bouy drifted off. That was a lot of work at the end.

Austin, that looks like Muskegon harbor. Is it?

 

Close! About 90 miles north - Onekama; the inland lake is Portage Lake.

That shot is taken from the south side of the channel. My cottage is on the north side of it, on the Lake MI side.

 

I sorta wish I had a cottage on Portage instead of the big lake because I could put my toys right out in front of the house, but watching storms come in is epic and the sunsets are nice.

 

This year, the Mac fleet came right into me, which was awesome to watch.

 

What number street are you? I am guessing that you have lake access to Portage lake right?
