HRD = Vincent motorcycles and this is a 1000cc Vincent v-twin.
VSCCA hill climb at Mt Equinox.
This went up the mountain like a scalded dog and I'll guess it weighed less than 1000 lb with driver

    Nice shots. Decent power and a lightweight body equals a lot of fun.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Gracias all.

    I go to the VSCCA hill climb every year.

    I raced Porsches for a while and the smell, noise and visuals of racing cars are crack for me.

    The VSCCA runs a very well organized and safe event that draws entries like this Cooper.

    Hey, guy, I hope you're doing well. Read a response I made to John about Daytona under my posting about a home in the " holler ". If you want Hurley Haywood's book, I can get him to sign one for you and send it your way.
