Maine Roadtrip, Photos

This weekend I drove 1400 miles from Washington, DC to the coast of Main. Great landscape, towns and roads in that part of the country. Below are a few shots where I included the car.

Hey there,

Yes, I got the ACS springs but I still have to install them. I hope I can get the time in the next few weeks. I will post photos once the suspension work is done.

I did edit that photo but mainly adding a punch of blue to the sky. The rest is pretty close. On the other direction the sky gets washed out more due to the orientation of the sun.

How did you make the connection with the Wiki link? Good eye though! ;-)

Just curious as always.

Saw your firms website too. Grupo. Neat stuff.

Yea I've punched up colors on photos as well. Your rims look fab - hope they don't ride too hard.

Thanks! They do look better the closer you get to them. They are understated but do look pretty big due to the long spokes.
