Trip of a lifetime Ted! Did I see $5.39/gallon Premium fuel? What does that Honda Motor get for MPG in a Roadster?
Sunny side up!

It was a fairly nice but cool day here in the great PNW, so I decided to drive up to Mt Rainier one more time. Stopped along the way to try my luck at mushroom hunting but was skunked. When I came back to the car once I noticed that the wheels were perfectly aligned... how often does that just happen? The car was freaking great and loved the cool air. The EFI is really getting dialed in and is just what this engine has always needed. I am beyond pleased with how it's performing. The reward at the top of the road is this view of the East side of Mt. Rainier. So lucky and grateful that I live in such a beautiful place. I never get tired of driving here, and I never get tired of this car... 36 years and counting.

Went to my first car show with the 68 1600 today. Had to wait for drizzle to clear and Tire didn’t want to hold air very long so a few roadside pump ups later I was one of the last cars arriving.
Still counts!

Not sure how to have the attached pics come out right side up….

I drove to the supermarket today in Mothra after getting my ass handed to me with Poison Ivy two weeks ago. It was wonderful to get on the road
