Even though it's November, the weather is great in California so we dropped the top on the appropriate car, a Ford Mustang GT/CS (the CS stands for California Special) and ran a road rallye.
This year's Peking-to-Paris Rally kicked off in Beijing today, with 97 antique vehicles prepped for a 9,000-mile trek through the roughest roads Asia can muster. Would you try to ride from Ulaan Baatar to Tashkent on an 8-hp motorcycle?
We put up Chevrolet's old-school classic, the Corvette (green in color), against Ford's new-school Ford Fusion Hybrid (gray on the outside, green on the inside), and ran ‘em both hard in a road rally.

Alex's latest dispatch from the 2005 Bullrun rally, in which he participated as Team Polizei, driving a 2005 Mercedes/Renntech CL600 "Polizei Interceptor." Repeat after us, "It's a rally not a race, it's a rally not a race..."
