Around the Roundabout
Neaing Fez  -  May 8th, 2004
These guys went throughabout when they shoulda gone roundabout. When they hit it with their rear wheel it shatterd the rim into 4 pieces. We stopped to help but couldnt do much for that one. The crowds in the cities were starting to change their Vibe around this time. Leaving the scene of this flat ...(read more/enlarge photos)

Running for the Ferry
Near Fez  -  May 8, 2004
WE were so tired the road signs actually made sense. The Mini Cooper broke down on the side of a pretty desolate stretch of highway. They said they were having some sort of Shaft trouble... we left it at that. Now and then kids would try and hang for some photos. The kids on the bike are actually ...(read more/enlarge photos)

On the Road, listening to Frank Sinatra
Convoy from Marrekech  -  May 8th 2004
Our killer "Dealer of Destruction" independent stickers we had on the windows made our van look like some AWOL US military rally mobile. This no doubt didn't help our image in Morocco... or France for that matter. For some reason Tim our trusty hitch-hiker from the Chevy SSR really wanted to listen ...(read more/enlarge photos)

Mad Scramble
Side of the Road  -  May 14 2004
This was a single car accident. Tried to pass at a high speed, cut back in too hard to avoid traffic and the car just started rolling. Happened about 1 foot in front of of the RCMP car. I bet that doesnt happen in Canada too often....(read more/enlarge photos)

First Nasty One
side of the road  -  May 14 2004
Sooner or later you knew it would happen. The license plate, L700ny. Apparently its bad luck. The roll cage saved these guys. There wasnt too much intrusion considering what happened to the outside of the car....(read more/enlarge photos)

Road to Fez
N. Africa  -  May 8th 2004
Heading out from the Hotel was insane. Every intersection was controlled by a police officer blowing his whistle and forcing the Moroccans off to the side of the road. People were taking it relatively slow at first... but things sped up in no time......(read more/enlarge photos)

More Rockos
speeding by...  -  May 7th 2004
We came accross this Enzo with a flat rear right tire. Jonny grabbed his tools from the Sportsmobile, and Mike from Robb's Saleen fixed the Enzo on the road without a call to Ferraris worldwide service center. Those goys were so stoked. Broken down, in the middle of Morocco, at night, in an Enzo Fer...(read more/enlarge photos)

Approaching Casablanca
N. AFrica  -  May 7th 2004
We pulled out our Moroccan flag and attached to the roof of our van. People were stoked and went nuts when they saw us go by with their flag blazing. Later on it didnt keep everyone from throwing rocks at us, but maybe it kept one or two off. Eating at Ricks Cafe. Supposedly just like in the Movie,...(read more/enlarge photos)

On the Road in Africa
whizzing by  -  May 7th 2004
We picked up another Gumball hitch-hiker, (first being Clive on the way to the ferry in Spain for a couple hours). This is Tim, he was in the Chevy SSR Truck sporting 700 horse power of exploding engine. He was so fricking stoked when he saw the couch in our van. He fell asleep withing 10 minutes an...(read more/enlarge photos)

Exploded Engine
North Africa  -  May 14 2004
This cars engine went kaboom at some pretty high speeds,(ie, 300 kph) It took him a minute to figure out what was happening. Luckily it was nice and straight there, his front tires were covered in oil. Can you guess whats missing in the last photo?...(read more/enlarge photos)
