Fate has a way of making the strangest of things happen in our lives. At times, we're left gazing at the sky, dumbfounded, wondering what invisible lightning bolt just zapped us when, as the old phrase goes, planets line up – suddenly, unexpectedly, powerfully. This is one such story, which tells of the most revered road on the continent, of American automobiles at their best, and of the brilliant artists whose remarkable music, both now and then, brings it all together in timeless fashion.

The RPM Act: A Message From SEMA President and CEO Chris Kersting
Over the past year, the racing community undertook an unprecedented effort to protect Americans’ right to modify street vehicles into dedicated racecars and our industry’s right to sell the parts that support the sport. In February, more than 100,000 racers, industry members and enthusiasts rallied to sign a White House petition in a single day. Since March, you have flooded Congress with nearly 200,000 letters in support of the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act—a bill that makes clear that the Clean Air Act allows motor vehicles to be converted into dedicated race vehicles. The bill also protects our ability to sell the parts and equipment that enable racers to compete. more>>

The 2016 Rolex Montery Motosports Reunion
Featuring the Cars of BMW and as a Canadian I have to admit I was not familiar with many of the cars from the 70's and almost none of the earlier BMW cars. The races are part of the "Car Week" and must be hell for anyone not interested in cars as the roadways are jammed almost all day every day for a week.
The 2016 Crescent Beach Concours
The selection of cars once again was exceptional and had a huge range of cars but one that struck me the most was thev first showing of a freshly restored 1922 Will Sainte Claire A68 Roadster powered by an Overhead Cam V8. Not the first American V8, certainly the first one with geardriven camshafts.
Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
The 66th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d Elegance was held on August 21st 2016. I arrived early enough to get a great spot to shoot the cars as they enter the field. The ocean in the background and the nice even light was great. Especially impressive was the cars were clean and not covered with ash like every other car on the peninsula.
