There are several Cannonball Run-type rallies that take place around the country (around the world in some cases). Fast cars breaking the sound barrier as they hustle from coast-to-coast in search of fame and glory. Well, that's how some of them started, at any rate. Nowadays the rallies tend to be a bunch of rich folks with exotic cars touring the States with a smattering of track sessions here and there to really test the cars and drivers. Luxury hotels and VIP parties mark the nights and moderately fast (in theory) highway cruises mark the days. One of these new age rallies just kicked off on its maiden run from the Santa Monica Pier over the weekend. And it was quite a celebration.

The cars are familiar, some of the faces too, but this rally has a slight twist. Billed as a sort of exotic car vacation run, the Joy Ride Rally has a deeper purpose. Part of the entry fee from each driver goes to support the Salvation Army's Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. The rallyists will follow a route through the Southwest and end up in New Orleans in about a week, to view some of the damaged areas first hand. We were on hand for the launch from the Santa Monica Pier and tagged along for a bit to get some shots. The police escort was a nice touch, but we had to explain to every single officer that we were indeed part of the entourage despite our lack of a supercar. The cars gathered on the classic wooden pier with a big crowd enjoying the free show.

Awesome pictures. I'd like to know wtf is up with that Vette in the 2nd pic. The two Minis are very nice, I like both. I'm also digging the GT3 front vent on the orange Carrera GT.

Brunette FTW!

Seriously though, nice cars. I'm not liking the Z06 body kit though. Blue Lambo is nice though.

I saw the poster with Enzo on a huge ass truck delivering bread to my bakery. I wish I took a picture for you.

Maybe they make really good bread?

Man, WTF is with Ferrari owners and wearing Ferrari clothing?? I swear they always seem to be the ones to do that. Rarely do you see a Lambo or Porsche owner decked out in clothing of their respective car manufacturer.

I have a Ferrari hat.. I won't wear it until I own the car. So theres alot of dust to be cleaned lol. I don't hate on them for doing it.. its pimp. I saw some european looking guy the other day driving a 430 with a red cap I pointed at my head reffering to his hat and gave him a thumbs up he downshifted and accelerated.. fuck it sounded nice.



I almost closed this thread after the second pic but decided to give it a chance
