2009 Nissan GT-R: The Perfect Address?

Taking a break from the San Diego Comic-Con, I met up with my good friend Ken Tooker to air-out the 2009 Nissan GT-R on some of the brilliant back-roads found in eastern San Diego county.

Along the way we stumbled upon a subdivsion in El Cajon, California with street names taken from motorsports, some obscure (Merlyn, Elva, Crossle), some quite famous (Jag, Offy, Foyt, Brabham, Lime Rock), and one that should have been spell-checked (Muira). Brit ex-pats can even live on Bridgehampton Place.

Ken took this photo at perhaps the best crossroads in the community, the corner of Donahue and Autocross. Don't like that one? The next block over is the intersection of Foyt and Donahue.

Anyone out there know of a better real-life street address for a motorhead?
