    It has been a couple of years since I have added anything to this site, but the files are still available for viewing. I did not renew the domain name in time (thought I had, but it never went through), and the interest in Vintage Rallying in the U.S. seemed to be waning so I let it drop. I do still have a couple of domain names pertinent to the sport and may revive the site with a new look, but haven't the interest in doing that right now.

    In the meantime, I have come across a couple of things that may be of interest to old timers... and maybe even a few newbies. I have scanned them and converted them to Adobe Reader PDFs.

    Long time friend and ex-rally photographer Phil Berg has just had his first book published. It is called Ultimate Garages and it looks at some showcase garages that are nicer than most homes. You can order it at the right from, or order a signed copy via the web site The web site also has more information about the book.

    Phil and his "ever reliable Press Beetle" were a fixture at SCCA PRO Rallies in the early 1980s when John Buffum was driving for Triumph and Audi, and Rod Millen was the primary competition in a Mazda. Berg provided photos to many magazines, and became known as "Fisheye" for his use of a wide-angle lens for close-up action. He parlayed that experience into jobs with AutoWeek and Car-and-Driver. He now does freelance work from his home near Ann Arbor, Michigan.
