    This past weekend at Silver Lake Sand Dunes there was an event called the long-travel round-up. It has been around for 9 years now and has been getting bigger every year! The quality of the cars was simply amazing!!! One person who made it out, all the way form San Diego was Blake Wilkey. You may know him as the guy who took his LT Beetle on the streets of San Diego. Well he has built another car and it is freaking awesome!
    Below are some pictures. I will get into some detail about a KILLER mini car below.

















    Nowhere near the desert.

    So, the mini car that stood out was this home made 2 seat car. Fox airs on all corners, R-1, super clean, home made FNR, GTI driver side axle assembly's and an Ecotec supercharger??!!
    The guy built it all himself and was amazingly clean and well done. The engine was an older R-1 model with carbs. He built an upper intake to mate up the supercharger and fed it with an S&S carb.
