Most of the competitors survived Las Vegas' Friday afternoon traffic to make it to the group photo location. Here the Optima gang delivered digital photo cards and asked us to shoot a photo of our car in front of a classic Las Vegas location. We never made it because our alternator died on the way out of the parking lot, so we took off directly for Pahrump, some 45 miles away. We expected the battery to die somewhere in the middle of the desert.
