question of the day what do you do for extracurricular fun

Last night I had the distinct, uh, pleasure of going to the Los Angeles stop of the Bullrun 2008. If you don't know, the Bullrun is an extravagant road rally where entrants pay $20k for the chance to drive around the country (and sometimes Canada) in extremely expensive machinery festooned with lots of stickers. There's also a lot of free booze, food and B-list celebs (Paris Hilton, Dennis Rodman) on hand. Despite the occasional reference to charity fund raising and carbon offsets, this event is another one of those bon vivant, not-so-PC kinda deals. As is the One Lap and the Great American Run. ABC News says "The 200 or so cars competing in the second annual race — an update of the famed Cannonball Run — will spew about as much CO2 in seven days as the average person generates in 16 years. Mention that to the drivers and they'll probably ask, 'Yeah? And?'" Me too. You? And what do YOU do for extracurricular automotive thrills?

  • Arthur Dailey So they cut the roof off the hatch area of a Dodge Journey?
  • Desertwanderer Across Australia, from Sydney to Perth, via the Nullarbor Highway. Desolate, very impressed to pass a bicycle tourist somewhere in the middle, I think he'd have a story to tell. Oh, and the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton, NS, in my S4.
  • Cprescott Please stop production of all Camry's - they are hideous and vomit inducing ugly.
  • Cprescott Excellent! Complete garbage.
  • Kos65701744 A lot of people back then didn't like the downsizing idea, which is why some didn't sell better than before. Which is why in final gen sales were record high in sales. My own father wouldn't buy a downsized GM car, he switched to a Ford LTD, a nice car but he hated it but wanted a big car
