Look ma, no dents! or visible rust. I keep forgetting how immaculate my car was before I started autocrossing. These shots are from my first ever autocross, which was also a G1teg meet. I think it was the last event of '01 at Dixie.

The black one in the picture went from E Stock to H Stock to STS. He built it to STS after driving my red car one time. The current black one replaced it. The old one was a 91, the "new" one is an 89.

Probably from around 2000 or so and about the second year of autocrossing for me.

Not really old auto-x shots but old auto-x cars:

Shots from my first auto-x (9/04 P&R)

What decade/century/mellennia do you want?
The earliest I see posted is just six years old!

Reviving a 10 year old thread with some 20 year old video. I have a lot more TSCC videos from this era, but this is the only one I have digitized and uploaded. This was my second event ever, first one was in Danville the previous month.

These may be best watched with the sound off, well not the car sounds, just my commentary can almost entirely be ignored. 24 year old me was rather embarrassingly ignorant in many ways both automotively and culturally. I do some American car bashing (which makes zero sense to 2017 me) and even some good old fashion 20th century misogyny. Unfortunately I did not edit the video to remove slow old me and my buddies from the cars on course, so you can perhaps fast forward through those parts, but there are some gems hiding in here, particularly that unforgettable yellow TVR as well as some FDRX7 action from GH Sharp, Patti Frye and Rob Faulkner...

Lol I think this is the only time that damn TVR didn't break down and I remember that new GTI. I can name most of the drivers in your paddock walk. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
