    So the gumball 3000 kickoff is happening just a few blocks from my place. It's happening tomorrow, so i decided to go out there tonight to get a little preview and snap a few night shots.

    Wasn't trying too hard w/ these (sodium vapor ftl), just quick snap shots, and really quick PP.

    Yup. 2 years ago i believe they hit 3 or 4 different continents. That was probably the most "world wide" of them to date.

    i hung out with Reza (MRMOTA) at a USGP race a few years ago. had no idea who the guy was at the time, but he was ultra laid-back. really cool guy.

    tried to get me to buy my elise from him. :o

    is this like that one supposedly world race where you pay like 10,000 dollars to enter via paypal to some yahoo mail account and then you could win a million or someshit?

    i know this one is real but did that scam get the idea form this or something?

    this was a couple blocks from my apartment too. I didn't realize they were in town until I went by on a bus that morning and saw the cars. By the time I got there it was too crowded for any decent photos, but I did see a tesla:

    Yeah, the 1 runs right past my apartment so if I'm ever heading downtown that's what I'm on. I rarely find out about these things as I'm usually only home Friday night and Saturday. Nice to see some cars out about that you usually only see at that dealership on Franklin.
