    Boom Boom Huckjam!

    cool down to earth guy. he was performing with a few other skaters and vert bikers at six flags new england.

    i shook his hand and we chatted about motorsports. seems he is big into trailriding. it was sweet since i used to ride trails and motocross before i started autocrossing.

    he thought the red mirage was hot. well, alteast he has good taste!

    Morgan Aero 8s aren't allowed in Cannonball.

    How do you figure? They have everthing from vokswagens to civics to enzo ferrari's..

    Why would they ban he aero 8? (not big on cannonball rules, obviously. I figured there were none.)

    I WILL run cannonball (gumball rally) once in my life.

    I think its now known as "Gumball rally" now.. according to some brief research, cannonball stopped existing in the late 70's

    The Cannonball has a cut-off of 1979. Most of the winners of the Cannonball drove motorhomes.

    Perhaps it is a gumball you're thinking of.

    no, what im thinking about started in england, went to morocco, and then back to the UK. Watch Mischief Invasion and tell me there is no more cannon ball run.

    so what, you could still run a Morgan Aero 8 in the cannonball because they are still somewhat new...
