When I'm not chasing news stories, I like to vent my built-up frustrations by autocrossing my radically-modified 1965 Austin Mini.I've been a member of the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) since October of 1985 and I've been thrashing the wee little British car around the pylons since the late Spring or early Summer of 1987.  Before I built the Mini, I autocrossed a 1983 Dodge Shelby Charger and a 1987 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z.  Actually, I've been a "car guy" since I was a teenager and I did my share of drag racing with my cousin in San Antonio back in the late '60s.

At any rate, I invite you to hop in; put on a helmet; strap yourself in; and get ready for the ride of your life.  You can find an in-car video of my last run at our 05/22/11 event at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr4y62DEEsE
