Did you wash & wax your car, or drive to a scenic viewpoint?
Fire it up for the first time after a rebuild or make an in-car or drive-by video?
Maybe it's just a nice day and you feel like using that fancy new camera...

I'll start it off with this rather nice green Midget from Denmark in racing trim:

Thanks Skye,
I love videos & pictures of these little cars!

Here's one of mine:



And a couple more:
Short test drive after a tune up:



A top speed run after carburetor work (too much wind noise, that's not the engine misfiring!):



This should be fun!:spinning:

OK, I'll play along. Here is one from my Sprite.

Somewhere in the middle I do a hard start and run it up to about 65 mph. Most of the rest is 40-50 mph.

One more ... this one from my Midget.

Most entertaining part of this one is the first 20 seconds when a hero on a motorcycle almost meets the Maker.

Trevor...that's great!

Love the view in the Bugeye.

Looks like you've got great roads to drive.

Alright guys...let's have some more!

Nice video...back in the day a buddy of mine had a Lotus 7, took top time trophies in just about all autocrosses he entered.

Love 'em!

Frequently, when working in the garage I find things that are interesting. I always think ... I should clean up and go get the video camera. But I never do. Maybe I'll get one of those flip video recorders for just such occasions.

Gopro camera of my 1380cc Sprite.
At the time it was using a single HIF6. Now it has twin HS4s.
I'm new to this forum. Looks like a great place for tips and info.

Here is the video I took the run before the rod started knocking yesterday. Looks like I'll be watching this the rest of the summer instead of driving it. I'm so bummed...

In reply to a post by trevorwj Welcome David, Are you taking the camera with you this weekend?

Thanks for the reminder Trevor. I had completely forgotten about the taking the camera.
Doh!
I mean why the heck did I buy it if not for fun trips?
Wish you could join us. It would be fun to spank a 933 together.B)

With a Standard Harley Muffler from some kinda Full Dresser Model:
