An Ole Miss football fan, apparently sorrowfully tired and perhaps a bit blotto after the team's loss to Texas Christian University in the Peach Bowl last week, decided to call Uber, the official car service of Capitalism™, for a ride home from the game.

Winter weather has left the City of Atlanta and surrounding areas, already prone to gridlock, in a condition of almost historic transportation disfunction as the infrastructure designed to keep the roads clear has failed at almost every step. Students are trapped in schools, thousands of motorists are trapped in cars,…
At the Atlanta Region SCCA Solo event, some intrepid young chap from Mexico showed up in one of these. This is apparently one out of 100 cars imported to Mexico, and he happened to be out our way and heard of an autocross going on. Our Solo Chair took this shot. Yeah, I think we do Solo right.
