    That kind of day in Geneva, at least when I was there.

    So, if you've ever wondered what an F40 looks like wearing sheer clothes, here it is.

    Rick Schuld's F40.

    Thanks for posting the shots!! I was hoping to go but ended up going to look at an old Rolls Royce as a 'get away' car for my wedding in October.

    I made it out to the old Meadowdale racetrack that was open from 1958-1969 today. The main straight is where they had the small car show. I think all the structures are gone. I threw in a few vintage shots of the track from the early 1960's.

    Not that I care about NASCAR but good for the track. I might even go next year just to see them on the Road America road course.

    Sept. 30 2018: Road America ("America's National Park of Speed" finally gets on the NASCAR calendar.)

    Weather is looking great for this Sunday. I expect a huge amount of exotic vintage and modern sportcars at both events.
