"The past is always tense, the future perfect"

That quote by Zadie Smith is a truism in that our last run to the Chihuahua Express in 2009, had some difficulties. Preparing for the 2013 race, we’ll hope for something closer to perfection. Lets take another short trip down memory lane…

Adios amigos, Buena suerte!

Today it’s Monday, March 23rd, 2009, the car is in the trailer and ready to go… more or less. It’s been a scramble to get things wrapped up to this point. The engine was started on Saturday and the car was first driven on Sunday, so everything is fresh and untested, to say the least.

The motor is not the version Rick foresaw, the cylinder head that came back was not compatible with the pistons, so a stock head had to be used instead. The upside is that the car ran well when driven on it’s three mile break-in. Everything seems working, but there are many things yet to be tweaked, too much to mention, which should make for some interesting stories by the enthusiastic rookie crew. There’s not much else to tell at this point, just the hope that all goes well for the car and drivers. Hasta luego amigos.

What a beautiful car that is! It now lives in Atlanta, GA., and did very well in the La Carrera Panamericana 2012.
