Was in my shop on a sunny but cool day this Sunday. Putting finishing touches on the winter upgrades on my Roadster and Jimmy Buffett's "Rag Top Day" plays on my sound system. Car not quite ready, but needed inspiration after a looooooooong, cold, snowy winter. Pat

When I finally get my roadster on the road one essential album will be "McCartney". I can remember listening to it on my 8 track on my way to work at my summer job in the morning with the top down. Another memory is the song Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf. When it would come on the radio when my girlfriend was in the car, I would down shift and floor it and hold it there until she would scream and hit me.

Radio Delete works for me...most of the time. For road trips, my phone and a bluetooth speaker will do...
