Off-Road Trip: Detroit Gambler 500 - Part 1

The first weekend of May was the Detroit Gambler 500. I had never been to a Gambler, so I didn't know what to expect. This trip was full of firsts for me. Enjoy..

As we rolled in, I saw things that I had previously only seen in photos, youtube videos and Top Gear cheap car challenges...

Cars that would be completely illegal in places like California, or anywhere with safety inspections...


Would never be allowed to be on the road...

And sporting captions, stickers or grafitti that would upset many people...

Either way, I'm glad my friend Sam invited me along.

The variety of cars was incredible. There was a Subaru BRAT...


And this bizare thing....an Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan with a pop-up camper fastened sideways in the rear, and sporting New York plates.

Tons of Panther-platform cars...

Lifted with big tires and overland kit...

Stay tuned for more Gambler Content. I have a feeling there will be more content like this to come.
