My life since the Redline.. (56k beware)

I just thought I would share some pictures and stories from what I've been doing since my Redline was stolen several years ago. Mostly it will be car/motorcycle related and I don't have pictures of everything single thing I've done, but there will still be lots of auto pron.

To start the good stuff - A good friend of mine locally (and a fellow former RL owner) got me invited to help out with Mecum Auctions as a driver. The past few years I've been taking a week off each year to go work a second "job" with the auction company. It is a privilege that I do not take lightly as I get the chance to drive some vehicles that most people only dream of and some of the ones I get to deal with are some that people only wish to see. I've been in a few museum cars where I was maybe only the second or third person to have ever been inside the car. These cars range from $1000 movie stunt cars to $500,000 muscle cars to $1,000,000 exotics to $4,000,000 race cars.. and, obviously, a little bit of everything in-between. Sadly I'm unable to snap pictures of every vehicle at the auction due to me working, but I'm always able to get a picture of any vehicle that I drive. If you have any questions about a specific vehicle feel free and I'll tell you what I can remember about it (usually a surprisingly good deal about them unless it was something I didn't care about).

Onward to pics!

and that.. was just most of 2012 Mecum for me. There is a ton more at the auction, but I'm unable to just wander around as I please while I'm there sadly (though.. rough life, eh?).

I will get 2011 and the such up probably tomorrow.

Haha, thanks guys. I'll post some more up as I either dig it out or just remember to do it. I haven't snapped any pictures of my FD yet and it's sitting in storage on stands for winter :/

I sorta bounce between cars/bikes quite a bit so there is a lot I haven't dug up or are stored on CDs somewhere since I've changed computers.
