Snow today and a high of 19 tomorrow. I'm actually taking the Xterra wheeling tomorrow. The roadster will have to wait.

10 degrees here in NY. I will go out to garage and sit in one...for a couple of minutes...maybe make some race engine noises if the spirit moves me.

In the SF Bay Area temps were in the 70s after several rainy weekends. Alvin organized a quick fun run to commemorate 311 Day.

It was a 91 forecast, it got to at least 88 when I checked.
I drove around and got a little sunburn :shock:

Alvin and gang... couldn't help but notice all the tire roasting marks... hmmmmm....
My car is sleeping, but I did just get done cleaning her up from last year... debug, waxing, chrome cleaning... looking forward to hitting the road again! 30 years of love and fun! Got a new Roadster friend whose wife apparently took a pic of my car last summer while on the road in Tacoma and convinced my new friend he needed to get one, so he did! His name is Ross and he has an early '67 1600, baby blue. Can hardly wait to have he and his wife take a ride with us to Mt Rainier or Mt St Helens... fun stuff to come!!!
