Definitely a big difference in power than the R16 in Doris although she is running very well right now!

Saturday morning drive with friends. Two S30 Z cars, KA-powered Datsun 510, BMW 2002, F20C-powered Toyota AE86 and an immaculate (S5) 13B-powered Mazda RX-2. Lots of twisty roads were enjoyed!

What a great bunch of cool cars!
I do have some pics of our latest drive, a circumnavigation of Mt Rainier, but they are in my wife's phone and she hasn't sent them to me yet (working 12 hrs shifts)... I'll try Alvin!
As I look the cars over, I'm still more attracted to the Roadster than any other. And nothing beats a convertible for a driving experience, especially in mountains or other scenic views.

The roadster puts them all to shame. Especially that one. One of my favorite roadsters on this site. Always loved a black roadster. Alvin has built an exceptional one. No shame on any of the other cars, they are all very nice, but in MHO they cant hold a candle.
Ive seen normal. It aint pretty.

Roadster Drive Today. 7-28-20. 69 S2000. South Skagit Hwy. 253 miles.
Another Beautiful PNW day. Mid 70's. Sunny. Perfect Roadster driving day.
North along the Cascade foothills to Clear Lake. Then 42 miles east along the South Skagit Hwy.
An alternative to the busy Hwy 20 on the north side of the Skagit River.

Roadster Drive today. 7-31-20. 69 S2000. Sunrise, Mt Rainier. 200 miles.
Fine drive today. Sunny and not too hot. To Sunrise at 6400' on Mt Rainier.
With DROPS members. Dan R, white 68 2000, Steve and Cheryl C, blue 65 1500, Karl B, Red 69 1600.
Parking lot full at Sunrise but found a nice spot beside the road. Mt Rainier was a bit cloudy.
Road up was fairly traffic free allowing for a spirited assent.
No problems but the 1500 and 1600 were a little "winded" at 6400'.
