Two new pages at TLR

Late 60s Burro info sheet. Tiny Thompson in Santa Ana made the Burro frames.

Steve’s Burro at the 2012 Auburn car show.

TLR is pleased to bring you two new pages for your viewing pleasure. The first is information on the rare vintage race buggy called “The Burro,” a vehicle we had the pleasure of viewing back in 2012 at the Auburn Cruise Night finale show. Steve Heckert was the owner, and he generously provided a wealth of information on these cute little guys. Please read all about them by navigating our menu above under “Tech Info/Tutorials,” or CLICK HERE to visit it directly.

Additionally, Steve sent several vintage photos of VORRA racing circa 1970’s. You can view these by navigating our menu above under “Media,” or CLICK HERE to visit it directly.

New TLR Affiliate – SmartSexyGeeky

If the title didn’t get your attention, the content certainly will. Our friend and sponsor Jade Axline of Jaded by Design has created a new blog geared towards girls and women (men too, really!) who enjoy nerdiness, business, and intellectual thought provoking ideas to better your life. Plus she has a wicked sense of humor, so it’s not a boring blog like so many of them.

Which, by the way, you should really check out her fantastic image design capabilities at her website. If you are in the market for a great new professional logo at a very affordable price, you’ve found your designer. Here is her mission statement of sorts for the new blog:

“I “founded” (meaning, bought the domain name) SmartSexyGeeky because I felt like there were too many blogs and sites for women focusing on makeup, fashion, calorie counting, and celebrity gossip. The goal was to create a corner of the internet where women (and maybe some men!) could go to read something relevant and something more existential than what so-and-so wore to this or that awards show. I wanted to write articles about maintaining, or regaining, a positive body image and overall health. I wanted to write about super nerdy things such as video games, the next Comic Con, and why I chose Intel over AMD…and I wanted to bring more people into that world. I hope my writing makes you laugh, inspires you, and makes you think. If it doesn’t, I’m sure at least one of my 3 amazing writers will. Thanks for reading SmartSexyGeeky!
– Jade Axline”

What does this mean for our TLR readers, and why on earth have I included this here? Well, other than a shameless plug for what will be an actually interesting blog, Jade has invited TLR to contribute automotive advice and tutorials there as well. Ah, there’s the gear-head reader relation to TLR. 😉 Additionally, there are four writers in total contributing, with affiliates ALSO guest-blogging, so there will be a vast amount of information, education, and subjects covered. You never know what you will be reading next. You can also visit SmartSexyGeeky on Facebook and give them a “like” to keep up with new posts. Or visit the website directly: SmartSexyGeeky.

TLR is proud to promote healthy image and good causes, like the cancer-research fundraising calendar with the esteemed off-road racer and YouTube car star Emme Hall that the Booger was featured in (twice!), or fundraising car shows we are proud to take part in. TLR is looking forward to being an online contributor in another facet of this subject. You can check out posts in the menu up there ^^ under Tutorials, or visit our first contribution directly by clicking here. Of course, most of the posts there will be very generalized for our usual readers, but remember this is basic information provided to help women (or even some men!) become more familiar with their car and thus feel more comfortable and confident in their abilities. Feel free to pass this website on to friends and family you think would enjoy reading it.

Looking for a split-window Bus? And SNORE Ridgecrest results

Looky what is on the Sacramento Craiglist car by owner section: a 1964 11-window VW Bus in good condition (especially considering what you usually see out there!). In case it’s taken down, here is a copy of the ad, and some photos:

“1964 11 window Volkswagen Bus. Professionally rebuilt 1907cc engine by specialist Gary Herrod, rebuilt in March 2014. Dual 36mm Dellortos with K&N filters, Scat forged crank and rods, 2qt oil sump and filter, new AS41 case. Rebuilt Rancho transaxle with taller gear ratio than stock. Dual German master cylinder installed. It is not cancered, and I have provided pictures of one of the dog-legs. There ARE a couple of pin-hole rust holes in rocker channels under the double doors and a bit on the driver’s side (also have included photo), there were pin holes in the front floor, but front and cargo floors have been POR-15’d (March 2014). I can provide before and after photos of this if you are interested, as proof that the floor is good.

I have owned this car for over 20 years, though it did sit for the last eight. The tires were new eight years ago (right before I parked it) and have fair tread, but they have been sitting so I can’t guarantee their life-span. Front seat has been re-upholstered, the rear seat is still original and in fair condition with small rips. It is clean – it was apparently in an accident and someone used Bondo in the rear but it really could have been addressed at the time without Bondo. The car is currently in old primer red. This Bus is registered and a daily driver.

This is an excellent prospect if you are ready to customize your own Bus the way you want it. It has a lot of potential, is solid, and already is in good working condition.

Please contact me via EMAIL ONLY. If there isn’t interest in the next couple of weeks, I will have it painted, interior installed, and windshields replaced (they are cracked) and the asking price will be raised. I would really prefer to sell local and don’t wish to ship it. Cash only.

Please contact me if you would like more photos of the Bus (specify what photos, please) or video of the Bus running if you would like to hear the engine. Or meet with me to view it in person.”

In other news, the SNORE Ridgecrest race last weekend was purported to be one of the roughest tracks in the history of that race. You can read race re-caps at the forum HERE.
