Topic: K car sighting outside of lemons.

Can't believe what I just stumbled upon.  But when sharing this story we were mentioned in with friends a friend shared this picture he captured of the K car on Oregon on his way to an MX National.  Just thought it was a neat coincidence and I would share.

That's Neil driving the car from Chris Overzet's place to The Ridge! Where I had the pleasure of "racing" it. And by racing I mean wrench on it in the pits and occasionally go out listening to either Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries or Motörhead.

Re: K car sighting outside of lemons.

Also, every time I tow or drive Ferdinand the Bug on the streets, I see tons of people taking pictures. I wish I could somehow find those on the internet. I think I need to put an internet address on the car so that at the very least people who take a picture of the car and share it with their friends have a place to find out more. The K car should do the same! Put that Google Maps chart that Doug or whoever put together on that website! And all the car's stats!

Lemons HQ has used the #KitForward tag a few times in their twitter feed-- perhaps that should be added to the car.

Re: K car sighting outside of lemons.

Hey! That's me!
Can I just share with you that driving the K to Washington with Mike and Chris and racing it with Phil and Paul and Anton and Chris was one of the highlights of my year. And that doesn't mean I live a small, pathetic life either. It was just that cool. Beautiful drive up, windows down, killer tunes, angry V-6 buzzing at me. And once she kinda started to work on the track, she was sort of fun to drive in a masochistic way. She has sort of a magical (perhaps demonic) allure to her. That is why it seems like at least 80% of the people that have had contact with her, even when she has been hammering them into submission, have a soft spot for her and keep coming back for more. And when she ran right, she gave you just enough hope to think, "maybe this time." I still believe that if she kept running races there is a C class win in her heart. Happy to see the IOE, glad there were some of the principal loons there to be part of it. Wish I could have been there.
But this picture makes me very happy. That was a good day.

Hey, that was pre sticker!  (Added at The Ridge).
