This is looking like the gumball rally with the variety of cars.

Looks like the deck is stacked just a bit here.

I've watched the one hour highlight show on this a few times. I just watched 2011's targa a few months ago. It would be an awesome event to enter. The leg of the event that goes through the suburban neighborhoods looks like it would be awesome to drive.

Once I get around to building my Jetta Coupe Hillclimb car I will definitely be entering this.

I agree it would be a blast. I recall, but, cannot go into detail because I dont have the magazine with me there was a sanctioned BMW event there once. If I remember, the bulk of the cars (if not all) were 2002's. Now I am going to have to go did out the old copy of my Roundel and look it up.

One of my dreams is to enter it. I would have to drive around 7800 kilometers seeing as how im on extreme opposite side of the country though.

Summer vacation? 

It would be a haul for me as well. Not sure the six would make it there then want to play with the other cars.

I've always wanted to check drive across Canada anyway. Too bad my Supra is between engine swaps, not sure I will ever get that done.

diggin' the seats on it. Arent there a lot of older cars though too? I am thinking I would take a classic ride on that route. Maybe like an original Ford shelby cobra, or an original Ford GT. I know, where to get them.  Tongue

I might as well wish for a pony as well. Same chance there.

This picture is such an awesome contradiction  -  roll cage, racing seats, racing harness all combined with seat heating and a factory in-dash navigation system .  .  .

I am thinking rather stay cool and not get lost. But, that is what windows are for I suppose.
