Re: What's your other passion(s)?
Winemaking, travel, sailing, and motorsports. Motorsports I'm the most passionate about, though.
My wife and I built the '86 Mustang road race car pictured below, which we just sold a couple years ago (although we have first right of refusal to buy it back if or when the buyer wants to change cars). I'm currently between track cars, and looking for our next project. Just spent last weekend in California at the Monterey Historics, looking at cars. Might have to do an early Mustang track car next. Have a team coming together for the 24 Hours of Lemons at Thunderhill next year, as well, and we'll probably build something utterly silly just for that one (since there's a $500 claiming rule for that event).
I've served as a driving instructor and steward for a number of car clubs that do track events all over the country. One of my favorite deals has been to travel to Vegas for the instructor gig with the Pantera Owners Club of America at their annual convention in March/April. Missed it this year for only the second time in 16 years...
