Newly weds Adriana and Jay Lamm.


image

Rally veterans Steve Peterson, Matt Hamilton, and Kjell Nelin


image

Supercharged MGA, Bugeye, Ferrrari, MGB; lots of interesting machinery around the park.


image



image



image

Leslie Yuen's Duetto went keyless the morning of the start, so he just left the motor running. Later: some push starts.


image

At the Snowball, they don't just TALK about diversity. Luc Blondeau's '70 Citroen Mehari.


image

Chris Sprouls' '67 912.


image



image

The very clean (and quick) "Bring a Trailer" '69 Porsche 911T of Gentry Underwood and Randy Nonnenberg.


image



image

The rally also experienced outbreaks of sartorial style. E.g. : David Agretelis and Keith McArthur, dressed to suit their 220SEb.


image

E.g., Stephen Weathersby, dressed for alien abduction.


image



image

Norman Weinfield's stalwart Jaguar XK140.


image



image

Peter Bergman's gorgeous '54 Jaguar XK120.


image



image



image

Dan Noyola's '73 Alfa Romeo Spider.


image

Steve Peterson's '57 Lancia Applia Berlina. 1100cc V4. A couple of years ago, Steve went coast to coast in it, so the ~500 miles of this rally should be a doodle.


image

Nick Pons' '69 MGB GT next to Jeff Guzaitis' '59 AH 100/6


image

Jon Fox and James Hunt in a lovely '68 Datsun 2000 roadster. Jim Huff (r) strikes a pose.


image

Jay and Adriana Lamm in the "Hammerite" Alfa Romeo GTV.


image

Jason McCandless and his '64 Porsche 356C.


image

The Drivers' Meeting. Jeff explains while the crowd grins.


image

And then we're off. 60+ cars, so the 1st stage is a traffic jam getting out of the starting area.


image

Armand Bengle fires up his '62 Sunbeam Alpine.


image

Kenyon Will's '72 Chrysler Imperial GT. Trick. Fast. Has a gravitation field akin to Jupiter.


image

Michael Ashby's clean '69 Volvo 122S.


image

The ever stylish Karyn Johnson and Stephanie Hamilton, next to Stephanie's Sprint.


image

Now motoring out of Sacramento, heading west towards the Sierras.


image



image

Michael Clark and Jack Staggs, looking happy to be on the road in their '61 Porsche 356 b Coupe.


image

Marty chats with a long distance sidehack rider at a stoplight.


image



image

Finally out of Sac and into the foothills. It's a glorious Spring day.


image

Chasing Stacey Sutton in her '72 Fiat 124 Spider.


image

Other interestin' machinery is out and about in the foothills today.


image

Roadside stop in the foothills, at about 3000 ft. Candy Pond makes a kissy face at the photographer.


image



image



image

Debra Kadner attempts, unsuccessfully, to hide her joy at being on the Snowball.


image

Gratuitous Lancia snapshot. If you're new to this site, it's a '67 "Fulvia Coupe Rallye 1.3". And a great car for events like this.


image

Luc Blondeau & Peter Engle flash past in the Mehari.


image

Perhaps "flash" isn't quite the word I want. But full marks to Luc and Peter for doing a mountain event with 600ccs.


image

Brian Bliven's '59 Austin Healey Sprite.


image

Lisa Ferrari and Curt Ingraham in their '72 BMW 2002 Tii.


image

Upwards.


image

Weather control on the rally was superb. It had snowed 3 days before...


image

...but we got clear skies and temps in the 50s-60s on Saturday.


image



image

After Carson Pass (8573 ft), a brief stop at an overlook.


image

Tracy Drummond's '60 Austin Healy 3000 Mk I.


image

Someone has left a 3" high painted rock as an offering at the overlook.


image

Off again.


image

Markleeville (elevation 5501 ft.), the lunch stop on Day One.


image



image

Some of us opted for a picnic, rather than add to the crush at the restaurant.


image

image

Off again, burping occasionally. The sign needs updating.
