|An MGF with Minnesota Plates|
SABCC club president and road race fan Richard Cunningham and I recently attended The Mitty at Road Atlanta. Originally known as the Walter Mitty Challenge, this event is the annual party thrown by Historic Sportscar Racing Ltd for the enjoyment of its members. This is the place to be to check out loads of racing machinery from the pedestrian to the exotic. I'll write up an entry about the weekend soon, but I wanted to share some photos of a car I spotted in the special interest car corral.

I didn't get a chance to chat with the owner but a Facebook acquaintance did and he reports that the state of Minnesota allowed him to register the MGF but gave him a hard time because the VIN didn't check out with their database of numbers.
What the owner may not know, is that the Federal government has been known to send US Marshals with seizure orders to collect -and eventually crush- non-complying cars. I certainly hope that won't be the case here, but it seems mighty risky to to me.
I wish you the best of luck, Mr. MGF owner.
