Love the Allard with luggage strapped on the side!

That's one of the neat things about this event, they're actually driving them and a lot of the cars are up in the 6 figure range.

I've seen a couple of those rallies.  Long time ago a stop in Prescott, and another time at the start, and it was raining then too!

I remember when racers used to drive their Allard J2Xs to races on the street. They would remove the spare tire, and tape the headlights over for the races. Not good to crash in a race or break. They had engines from Cadillac, Ford, Olds, Buick...Race tracks like Riverside, Willow Springs, Santa Barbara (Goleta Airport), Taft, Hanford, etc. I was a little guy then but I remember them well. I DO remember one night towing a Morgan home from Taft to the San Fernando Valley with a rope one time. That was about 120 miles through the mountains.
