Hugh's Party at the Mansion



A lot going on in our auto/moto circle, the same weekend of Rennsport my buddy Rene Astengo of Dagos Speed Shop got invited to attend Muscles at the Mansion, a fund raising car show at the Playboy Mansion. His Generator Shovel Harley was seen by a  promoter at the Grand National Roadster show where he took 2nd place in his class. This is the first time they included custom motorcycles at the event. It is exciting to see friends recognized for their sense of style and esthetic in their builds. We all grew up around cars and bikes in E.L.A. and have had a clear understanding of what direction a build should take .These car's and bikes have been seen and appreciated all over the world and whats cool is they would have been built even if no one was watching!  
Congrat's Brother!

Day Two




                                    
Got to the track early on saturday and we were met with a couple of cold ones , compliments of Ben's friend Mark, AKA "DKK Fred". no one knows why they call him Fred? He was working on a team car, the early 911 in background. We also caught up with Photographer and friend Maurice Van Den Tillard of Dutchman photos.com , if you dont know his work you should check him out, prolific in the auto/moto culture around the globe ,he is also a great guy to hang with , we hung out all weekend! We also met up with Magnus Walker and Mark Motshagen.

Opening Day




Had a great drive up to Monterey for Rennsport, Bens 912  with fresh rebuild was flawless! We even got cars up to triple digits on a stretch of PCH before entering Santa Barbara with a Dodge Magnum giving chase. We arrived at Laguna Seca at 4:00 P.M.
