Another Monday

It’s Monday. Everyone have a good weekend? Mine was uneventful but relaxing. The weather was gloomy, but surprisingly it cleared up Saturday afternoon and we actually saw the sun. Sunday was mostly cloudy with some storms, so I spent most of it indoors doing some work while watching the race in Sonoma. Sadly,  Darrell Waltrip is retiring from Fox Sports and yesterday’s race was his last. Gonna miss his Boogity-Boogity-Boogity call at the beginning of every race. Enjoy your retirement, Darrell, you’ve earned it.

The girlfriend and I have been itchy to get out of Illinois lately, so we’re planning a roadtrip out to the east coast later this week. We haven’t finalized the itinerary yet, but so far we plan on hitting the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, New York city, and possibly shoot up to Maine for some lobster. This also means that for the first time in 18 years I won’t be attending the race out at the Chicagoland raceway this weekend. That’s kind of a bummer, but I’m looking forward to getting out of here.


The Menace

It’s Sunday! I have some very special Corvette goodness for today. It’s a one-of-a-kind 1972 Corvette named Menace. It was commissioned by a client from the Netherlands who wanted to bring a C3 into the 21st century with all the modern goodies. Check out the video to see the unbelievable amount of work that Heartland Customs put into the build. Oh, and what’s with the name, you ask? Well, the owner’s name happens to be Dennis!

In-Car Video Games

It’s Saturday! You can play games on just about any device these days, but did you know that includes your Tesla? And you can even use the steering wheel and brake as in-game controls. Really! Check out this video to see the latest update rolling out to a Tesla near you!
