Esty, many cameras these days are equipped with some new technology. It's called au-to-fo-cus.

Not really hard to take a picture like that if you are blessed with having two hands.

And that speedo is obviously in kmph, not mph.

I hope its KPH. if thats 160 in US standards, you'd better have a Group 3 bodykit to keep the thing on the ground!

he failed to mention he had a camera strap'd to his forehead snapping stills as he safely drove the car at that speed

trip coming back to canada was better as there was no rain.

before we left from lime rock i torqued my cylinder head as the rebuilt motor has just hit 1000 kms when we arrived at lime rock. car runs so good now that it is broken in. have to re-adjust the valves and change the oil before i put the 1502 back on hibernation.

i was doing about the same speed as john was when he took that shot.

at one time i floored it for a short while and hit 195 kph (121 mph) at 6000 rpm on the highway 401 just before i made the exit to my place, my speedo goes up to 220 kph (136 mph). we set the cruising speed at 140-150 kph most of the way good thing there were no cops.

i broke the exhaust hanger/bracket on the tranny in half and i burned 2 quarts of oil round trip at least no broken header this time.

it was a pleasure to meet harv, bill, justin g nyc, steve nj, c.d..and the other '02 guys hope to be back again next year but we might to to watkins glen next years as bmw is the featured marque.
