      Reading through this thread made me reminisce about my first stereo. I picked it up in the late '80s -- Pioneer 6500 II series amplifier, tuner and tape deck, plus a CD player, plus two massive...

      Saw my first one yesterday. Character lines or not, it's a good looking car. No pics, as we were driving in opposite directions.

      With the rear seats down, I can get my bike in my Viggen with both wheels on.

      Forester rear seats contain kids' car seats, so I picked up a Yakima Stickup for bike duty there.

      No subframe brace, just the steering rack brace thus far. Prior to this brace it sounded and felt like something was going to break every time I hit a minor bump in the road -- particularly at speed....

      Nice find -- that's a fantastic price for a Viggen. I was proud of the 80k mile 5-door I picked up last year for $4500, but I think your deal blows mine out the water.

      I seem to recall reading...

      I saw someone taking photos of the Volvos, but I'm pretty sure he was shooting with a Canon. Plus he looked a lot older than I envision you being (no offense if I did in fact see you!).

      I...

      Shots are really nice. I love all the detail and workmanship put into the safe/vault mechanism. I feel like you'd never see that sort of craftsmanship on a modern equivalent.

      That's me on the far left. :wave:

      We were driving down San Antonio when I saw the car transporter that I recognised from your previous posts. So we detoured over so that my boys (and I) could...

      This took a while! I'm not sure I could afford to pickup both a beer and gas on the same tab.

      So I managed to make it to my local camera shop on Friday afternoon, intent on renting a teleconverter for my 80-200. But then I saw they had a 80-400 4.5-5.6 with VR, for just a few bucks more.

      No, not comparable glass. The 70-300 is an entry level, plastic bodied lens. The 80-200 is definitely higher quality.

      If I can't sort out a converter, I think I'll just take the 70-300. I'm not...
    18. First time shooting auto racing. Lens speed or reach?

      This weekend I'm going to check out the Tudor racing at Laguna Seca. This is my first time going to an auto racing event in about 20 years (last time was Vancouver Indy!).

      I've got a 80-200 2.8...

      Cool, thanks for the info guys.

      I'm planning on being there Saturday. And bringing my DSLR. Jelorian, given that you had a 400mm do you think it's worth bringing my 80-200 2.8? Or a cheaper (and...

      Laguna Seca noob - general seating question

      I'm heading down to Laguna Seca this weekend for the TUDOR racing/Monterey Grand Prix.

      I've never been to Laguna Seca for a car event, and the website suggests watching from pretty much anywhere....
