gay rally team struts their stuff 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.

    Is everyone too pc to make jokes? The whole race had to be stopped-all the teams blew their engines.

    2nd in the luxury class? In a Saab convertible? Wow. Regardless of the sexual orientations, they have to be good cross-country drivers to be in such a position in such an outdated car. Saabs are not even reliable anymore, are they? I mean, you never know when the capote will blow.... In French, softop is a "capote", just like a contraceptive.

    Speaking as a homosexual, this just goes to prove what I've been saying for years: gays have an amazing knack for acronyms.

    Sounds like the Gumball Rally, you know, without any of the fast cars.
