  • tAstetheRoADBy The Alabama Charlie Welcome to Motorfests sum-mer garage issue, dedicated to all things with motors, even wines with pictures of a truck, a car, or maybe a motorcycle on the bot-tle label. Wine reviews here-in are solely my personal opinion of the label. I have no formal training in wine tasting, I dont drink wine, I dont know what they taste like and am not involved in the wine industry in any way. I am just a guy in a second-hand mechanic shirt pontificating on the merits

    of a good label. Motorfest wine reviews are a thing of rarity, savior this one... Todays vintage example would be Adobe Road Winery which is owned by renowned sports car racer and entrepre-neur Kevin Buckler and his wife, Debra. In 1992 Kevin founded The Racers Group (TRG) and grew it into an internationally prominent manufacturer and distributor of performance Porsche parts, while simultaneously building a career

    OR THE GODS muST bE cRazy A WORD FROM THE EDITOR

    Religion - some us have it some of us dont - or do we? Ever notice how certain people only drive Audis? Sorry make that Chevys and some guys only drive Fords? Never mind what the car you drive says about you specifically - look at the bigger picture: Some people drink Pepsi - some people drink Coke, the wacky morning dj says democracys a joke (- Cake). Is it possible there is a sym-metry between various automotive brands and the regional religions they represent? Could they be allegorical to the people who build them?

    In the world around us we would have Ferrari and Lamborghini Roman Catholics, Porsche and BMW Luther-ans, Tata Hindus, Hondas and Toyotas would be then have to be Shinto...

    The 1958 Jaguar XK140 Light British Chassis com-bined with a robust inline 6 Druid Engineering at its 3-time LeMans Winning finest.

    XK engine developed in WW II Producing 210 BHP Propelling the XK140 to a staggering (for the 50s) 120 MPH 0-62 MPH came in a neck-snapping 8.4

    Not surprisingly people stay true to their religions. Our own Destin Car Club sees this monthly in our meet-ings that could be strictly Porsche Centric if it werent for the occasional Nissan or Ferrari. Now do we kick these slobs out - of course not - we are trying to convert them.

    Recently we took a quick trip to the country armed with only 50 feet of rope and a Volvo XC 90. Just a cou-ple of Volvo Guys on the trip up. But on the drag back I personally con-verted a new member to the Lutheran church. Our own copywriter, The Libertine became a proud Porsche owner. A very humble sum to join our church giving way to a huge amount of enthusiasm bestowed upon a rusty throw away car - pulled from the

    Is there a Buddhist Geely in your future?

    - we saved two souls that day. On the largest of scales one more win for glory of Stuttgart.

    But converts are few and short lived. Save for a brief Babalonian Captivity, I myself dabbled in Shinto in the mid-90s, Ive always driven Lutheran otherwise.

    Is one religion the best? Certainly in the 50s the Druids had the sportscar market locked up, save for those Stonehedge electronics that somehow didnt translate very well. What of Saab, Delorean and Studebaker - gone forever or poised for a renaissance? The time-faith continuum will tell.

    We here at Motorfest welcome all of you, no mater what drives your faith, in a very Unitar-ian Universalist way, but lets get one damn thing square, this heres Gods Country - Chesterton once said If you dont believe in something youll fall for anything.
