  6. The 17th annual Coronado Speed Festival (CSF) occurred this past weekend at Naval Air Station North Island (Coronado, CA), the birth place of Naval Aviation. This year the marquee was the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang and featured a 50th Anniversary Mustang Car Corral and a Mustang Parade Lap that had over 50 Mustangs. Former Trans Am driver driver George Follmer served as the Grand Marshall of the event. The CSF is part of Fleet Week, an event that honors the service and dedication of the members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard which is open to the public. The CSF featured over 250 vintage race cars in nine classes of vintage racing over a two day period. In addition to the vintage racing, there were car shows, ship tours on the USS Nimitz and two other war ships, an exhibition by Robbie Gordon's SPEED Energy Formula Off-Road Series, a freestyle sportbike show, aircraft flyovers and military Pit Crew Challenge in a full NASCAR style pit stop and static military displays.

  22. Is this for real? What will they look like on a Shelby? Made in South Carolina, USA - "SEE THROUGH" TIRES ! Radical new tires design by Michelin, the next generation of tires. Recently released at the Philadelphia car show. Those are spokes like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread 'wrap'! Next picture shows what they look like in motion... These tires are airless. They are scheduled to be on the market soon. Bad news for law enforcement as spike strips will not work on these. Think of the impact on existing technology: A. No more air valves B. No more air compressors C. No more flat tires D. No more puncture repairs E. No more jacks or spares required. These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.
  23. Looks like the owner of the post took it down.
