Hunter S Thompson’s semi-autobiographical novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas states: “So the next weekend he [a friend] flew up to Reno in a private plane, with a friend and two girls – all ‘special guests’ of the GM. Nothing too good for high rollers…”
It seems that private plane may be the best way to travel into or out of Reno – as this city seems to have a strange effect on one’s driving. Recently, while leaving an event in Reno called Cars and Coffee, a driver decided he wanted to leave with a “bang”.
Unfortunately, the bang with which he left was somewhat too pronounced – and caused almost as much embarrassment to him as it did damage to his car. Flick over to the next page to see this proud piston-head get taken down a notch.
