On the 6th of October we had the last American car cruise here in Estonia. The weather was already getting quite bad, the nights were cold and it was raining all the time. I don’t even want to talk about what we have today – a week ago we had our first snow and terrible driving conditions, but now it has all melted and we are left with continuous rainfalls and temperatures around 0…+5 deg Celsius. But enjoy the photos!
Here is our gallery of this month’s American car cruise in Tallinn. We finished my Corvette works last minute before going to the cruise and then we found that the waterneck on the intake was leaking like crazy. What a turndown! I decided to take the car back to the garage and we went with my friend’s Buick Skylark instead. Isn’t it a nice car? Well anyway, the Corvette was fixed the same night and now the leak is gone.
Last week my friends from the Estonian Ford Mustang Club told me about their upcoming event at a gokart racing circuit, lately used mostly by cars. I ofcourse joined them and on Saturday morning we were ready at the track to prepare ourselves for some laps with an instructor and then get going alone. I must say that it was an awesome experience and it gave me a lot of experience with the Corvette in regard of handling, stopping and recovery from loss of control. The Vette behaved nicely the whole time and I was just missing some good racing tires. In the front I currently have Road Hugger radials and they aren’t really made for track performance. Quite a bit of understeer with them.
Long time no new information here, but the present moment makes an end to this silence :) Again, I’ve been busy. I have my Air Traffic Controller job and all sorts of other activites with my businesses. Still, I managed to accomplish one of my long time ideas to gather two friends, one with a car and another with camera, and have a highway photo session of the Vette. So, off we went with my photographer handling my EOS 40D in the Monte Carlo SS. Oh well, the friend who was supposed to be taking good photos almost got really angry at us because we just couldn’t stop playing around and passing each other at full throttle! In the end we were still able to capture some decent stuff. Editing was done by me. When we finished shooting, we went to a drive-in and accidentally there were two Firebirds also in the queue. So we began talking and made some new friends.
