A fantastic road trip, some very special cars, Murcielago at the Track, and some Night Shots – what a weekend!

I just had an amazing car weekend. Thursday I went out to Birmingham to join a very special friend and customer as he took delivery of his brand new car. It was a great chance to see what my new Manual Transmission LP640 is made of.

Lots of cops on I20 heading West.


Then the Murci got introduced to some rain. IMG_4970

Then we needed a pit stop. IMG_4971

Then I made a quick stop to check on the S55 project car at Mercedes Benz of Birmingham – the place where miracles happen. IMG_4975

The Murci was a strong departure from their usual fare. IMG_4977

Then I made it to the hotel where we were staying – The Westin Birmingham.IMG_4980

Some friends joined me. IMG_4983 IMG_4985

And we went to Barber Motorsports Park for my friend to get something pretty cool. The fanfare was appreciated and appropriate. IMG_4987 IMG_4988

Quite a car. IMG_4989 IMG_4992 IMG_4993 IMG_4995 IMG_4996 IMG_4997

Some other fun stuff laying around. IMG_4999 IMG_5001 IMG_5002 IMG_5003 IMG_5004

They also had a track beater for him to play around with. It passed 10k miles as he was driving it. IMG_5005 IMG_5006

The hospitality at their Porsche Driving Experience was incredible. IMG_5007 IMG_5008 IMG_5020 IMG_5025

Less cops and less traffic on the way home. IMG_5029 IMG_5030

Not less bugs. IMG_5035

Then on Saturday we had our Motorcars of Georgia Track Day. IMG_5036The construction at Atlanta Motorsports Park is coming along nicely. 

It was a beautiful day. I took the Murci around a few times just to feel it. It prefers big highways to tight twisty tracks but it held its own. IMG_5046

Sunday evening, I took the Murcielago down to Midtown to see some friends for dinner. Good excuse to stop by one of my favorite photo spotsIMG_5077 IMG_5087 IMG_5088 IMG_5091 IMG_5092 IMG_5098

Always nice to see some fellow Cannonball enthusiasts. IMG_5099 IMG_5100

Like I said, fantastic weekend of automotive fun. IMG_5105
