News New life for RoudRunner.

As you know I was driving Roadrunner on a day let, say was great and going to get some fuel in Walnut Creek Same routine except that I opt to get onto HWY 24 from onramp First street, This onramp is at least 1/2 mile at a grade of 6% nice but as you enter the HWY there are three dips at an angle of 30% . At this point I was at normal speed was not on the car at this point, moved over one lane to give slower vehicle right of way. Turned out I was in a turn about that I could not control Car was air born and was moving in the right direction, Right onto coming traffic, Made a instant decision to move out of the traffic and the front end hit the medium, I did not want to take the complete blow or impact on the drivers side. Front end hit concrete divider and the centrifugal force was present. I walked away from this with no injuries. Must be the way I drive? After about one year and yes the car was totaled out buy AAA Insurance. I did find a downer for Roadrunner, Will keep you posted on events.

Gary, I'm not clear which car is going to get back on the road. What did you buy? Will you use the new cars parts to rebuild Roadrunner or the other way around?

It was good to have you at the Nationals with the other Sky.
