Gay Rally Team Struts Their Stuff
Gaywheels.com has entered the first openly gay cross-country rally team in this week's Fireball Run Transcontinental Rally. Driving a Saab 9-3 convertible, Team G.L.A.M (Gay & Lesbian Automotive Maniacs) is one of 55 teams running the 3,500-mile scavenger hunt/race from Orlando, Florida to Los Angeles. The entries in the race include an all-woman Bentley team, the ambulance used in the movie "Cannonball Run," and a 1960's Batmobile (POW! WHAM!). Team G.L.A.M. is currently in second place in the "luxury class" and ninth overall. According to their blow-by-blow description, they've had to deal with state troopers in Alabama and Texas, a blown tire in Louisiana, panic brought on when they forgot key items at a check-in point in Oklahoma City and truckers clogging the CB airways talking about the "faggots in the Saab" as they drove through Nevada.
