We'll never forget seeing the 1990 short film, "Climb Dance" for the first time. The thrills, the chills, the skills packed into that chronicle of Ari Vatanen's record stab at the 1988 Pike's Peak Hill Climb (in a Peugeot 405 T16). Actually, though it's been floating around the 'Net for several years, we saw it for the first time this morning. Yes, we've been asleep, but then again, we're not up 14,000 feet, hanging off a ravine by three wheels, so we don't have to pay attention as acutely.
