Posting some Instagram pics from my Saturday beginning @C&C, followed by a visit to Udvar-Hazy & AllSports Grand Prix.
Thanks again to all & your suggestions for an unforgettable morning. I recommend this trifecta to all of you.
Unfortunately no pics from AllSports but WOW. $25 'Arrive & Drive' got us 18 laps.. took no more than 10 minutes but what a freaking rush. If you want a mini-class on RWD handling dynamics look no further. You can literally drift these karts around turns and it will give you a chance to learn what it's like to try and corner cleanly in a tail-happy machine. Tap the brakes, turn-in, clip the apex, back on the gas, and try not to lose the arse. I'm glad it's so far away from my home, because I'd go broke if it were any closer.
HIGHLY EXTREMELY EGREGIOUSLY RECOMMENDED

yes it is. if i'm up for it, i'll swing by. the weather may be hit or miss and will definitely be hot. that might turn away most of the older cars that would generally make an appearance.
I figure I'll roll out in the Bunny before it gets too hot. That car gets a bit hot inside once it's over 80 degrees or so. Reminds me I have some roadkill that I need to get off the duckbill that I found on there. GAG....
Saw quite a few VW's floating around. There were so many people it was insane. Some great cars, but this was the first show I hate to say that there were a LOT of douchebags out. I've developed a real "hatred" towards this one blue M5 that felt the need to block two parking spaces on the side to display his car that everyone I've spoken to know that he's a PITA. Parking is getting REALLY tight b/c of the bank and the farmers market. Not sure how much longer it's going to last at this location after this season.
Still.. highlight for me was a 993 CS(a real one from what I could tell). Car had 31k on it was just amazing. Me want!!!
Rabbit was happy to have a little bit of an airing out on the way back home. Time for me to do some work on the fuel system though. She's getting a bit rough at idle. ACK... my work is never done.
Also, the black NSX that was close to the gulf themed GT only had 29k miles on it! And it was the first generation!
