Made it home from the 3 day test at VIR. We tested good with the Camaro and even got the chance to run Paul Menard around in the car for 20 laps. He retired from NASCAR Cup Series after 2019 and hoping to have him on as a second car.

Well, the high-miler X5, CEO and her security team of Shadow and Sadie all went to Lake Ouachita in Arkansas for the 23rd Labor Day Weekend in a row.
The nice, new aluminum PWC trailer was begging for something new to tow it, and it may just get its wish pretty soon.

Got to Mountain Harbor Resort without any issues, waking up to participate in a huge Trump floatilla of more than 1700 boats. No capsizings on this lake with plenty of fire boats and game wardens keeping an eye on things.

The next two days were filled with perfect weather, wine and water and reservations were made for 2021.

2002 X5 3.0 382,100 miles
2014 428i 70,000 miles

2004 325i sold at 123,600 miles
2001 325i sold at 66,000 miles

The trip back was thrilling as the rear cat gave up the ghost and suffered a partial collapse near Mt Pleasant, TX. There were times I could barely make 45 mph up a grade until we got just west of Dallas. Then all of a sudden, I was back to maintaining 75 mph as it must of puked some of the guts out of the converter.

So I've got a pair of el-cheapos coming from carparts.com with an indie scheduled for install that will keep everything at about $1000 and get me through till next spring when there will be something different in front of that trailer.
