Enjoyed a nice 4 day ride with a few friends!

Decided to pretty much stick to pictures only for this posting.

A quick stop in Nipton Ca for a cold water and a losing Lotto ticket...I wasn't feeling it for the pickle barrel, but apparently someone does, from time to time

Vehicle testing

Each time I've been to Death Valley Junction, I've seen fleets of Chrysler vehicles, some disguised and some not being tested and stopping regularly in front of the establshment for a few moments, then moving on.

This trip, was the new "Fiat 500" retro coupe. Chrysler's answer to the new Beetle, and the Mini.:


Interestingly, we passed one of these a day prior in Palm Springs on I-10, and it was NOT being tested, someone had already purchased it.

Those in the know told me the testing is a 24/7 affair, and we saw these cars several time during our brief stay there. Last trip was the Dodge "Charger" disguised in vinyl. 3 or 4 of them running around.
