We just posted one of Tim's columns (from October 2010) about his experience co-driving his Triumph TR3 race car.

"Being asked to share your beloved race car is a little bit like being asked to share your wife. It is (at least for me) not a comfortable proposition."

So we know he shares his race car, how about his wife?

Cause if he will I've got a little light house cleaning I'd like done.

Good article, I remember reading it when it was in the magazine but it is nice to re-read.

I share my racecar (rallycross) with anyone who wants to drive it as long as they can drive a manual without destroying the clutch. I like to see other people enjoying it as well as getting opinions on what to improve on for myself, both in driving and changes to the car.

Watch what you say about Margie. She sometimes hangs out 'round these parts.

Oh, Carguy, I'm sure you know everything about housecleaning already and nobody could possibly do it better than you.

Margie

As my wife can attest I know enough to recognize it when I sees it, but not well enough to actually do it.

If'n I needed a new patio poured I know you'd be tops on the list.
