I took another run up around Blood Mountain last Sunday. This time my neighbor came along in his MGB. It was early, so the roads weren’t crowded. It has been dry, so the leaves were not sticking to the road. That makes for some fun driving.
The first video (16 minutes) is from my car, and the other videos (3 minutes each) were taken with a cheap dashcam that I loaned my neighbor. These were all from along Wolf Pen Gap Road.
Between the time change and the colder weather moving in, you might think that Caffeine and Octane attendance would be lower than the previous months. You would be thinking wrong, though. The lot was packed.
The older cars seemed to be out in force, and there were plenty of C&O regulars present. For the Z car lovers (especially me), there were plenty of great first generation cars.
One car that drew a lot of attention was the Mercedes CL55 AMG that did the Cannonball Run in a “record” time. (Is there an official record?) The spare tire was still in the back seat.
As I walked around to take pictures, I couldn’t help but overhear one excited spectator talking to someone on his cellphone going on about C&O being a car show unlike anything he’s ever seen.
This month I decided to take some more pictures of the pooches that owners bring to the event. Dogs and cars do seem to go together.
