Yep it's cones in the parking lot. It's SCCA Solo II. I like the competition and going for points. I like taking the car to the limit and sometimes past. I have spun the car like 4 times this year and I put the car sideways many times and saved it. I have been on the that track but I don't like the wall, so you don't push the car as hard as you can. I like my parking lot as it pushes me to the limit and lets me race on a budget. And were else can you pull a front tire up.

I think I qualify for membership now ;-)
Recently got the Turbo wheels and love the "sinister" look!

10 years old, sits outside in tropical sun 8-10 hrs/day year round, only time it gets washed other than rain is if it's in for service.

Hard to believe but why not.... You must not wash it but you are waxing it. I suspect that you have a couple of palm trees above, protecting it. Mine does not look so good for sleeping in a garage....

No palms anywhere near it in my office lot during the day. I used to put Meguairs Mirror Glaze Synthetic Sealant on it once during the winter (it's too hot for me to do it in the summer) but I think it's been a couple years. Ik I didn't do it last winter. What I use occasionally (again, only in the winter bc it's too hot for me to do it in the summer) is Meguairs Spray Detailer. It's spray-on-wipe-off, no need for buffing, and as long as the car is just water spotted (not dirty) it does a nice job, and it has a sealant and UV protector in it.
But believe me it took me longer to write this paragraph than I ever spend pampering that car.
