Are you crazy? Perhaps a bit, but it's the best kind of crazy.

Some of your choices would not have been mine, but I've had a similar desire to build a vintage feeling track/street car that isn't a clone of X or Y (although most of my design ideas wind up looking an awful lot like either an XJ13, or a mid '80s Le Mans racer)

That is disheartening, but not surprising.

Wherever I encounter a roundabout, they are an anomaly. As such, not every person approaching is well-versed in their function, and there always seems to be someone that doesn’t get it – stops – looks both ways…

But on the rare occasion when everyone does exactly what they are supposed to, exactly how they are supposed to, roundabouts are magical.

They seem to be becoming more commonplace, and as they do, the general understanding should increase. I, for one, welcome our new roundabout overlords.

Joliet is a true 24 this (next) year? How did I miss that while perusing the schedule? As if I wasn't already certain to register for it. I should probably acquire spares for any and every thing that can break, since if this year taught me anything, it's that parts for a 27 year old Jaguar are hard to come by at local parts stores.

A Rolls doesn’t get you to your destination any more effectively than an S-Class, which isn’t any more effective than an Equus.

Just as a Patek Phillipe doesn’t tell time any better than a Rolex, which doesn’t tell time any better than a Seiko.
