    Cool! and at least one team was on a mission from God!

    There's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark out, and we're wearing sunglasses.

    Contraption bolted to top of car is a loud speaker as loud as it is big on occasions kept it turned down while playing Blues Bros soundtrack (you can actually hear that line in the background of vid) or entertaining the crowd whether they wanted it or not headed down tomorrow for official start of race Sights & Sounds

    I was surprised to see that the'll be stopping overnight
    in Eureka (CA),my old home town.I guess "timing's everything".
    That "Blues Brothers" Dodge sounds like the soundtrack
    would get really old,after the first day (if you were in the car).

    When I lived there,we had a few car events that would show up
    in the area - California Mille,cars would be there overnight,on the way
    to the Pebble Beach Concours,on August 10th.
    There's also the SCCA Concours on Main Street,in Ferndale,on
    September 7th.
