RE: [T3] Took Sophy for a nice drive today....

DITTO for me tommoro!!!
I got the Square and the Notch out tonight... God its good to hear the din
of an aircooled engine again and smell non-catalyzed exaust!  Mmmmmm.....
Found a couple eaten acorns on top of the Square engine which has me a bit
concerned about what may be under the tin but from what I can see (which is
limited) I don't see any problems and nothing is getting spewed out
underneath.  Her 8.5 year old battery had enough life to prime up the oil
and fuel systems too!!
	The Notch has plates on it and Ill drive it to work tommoro!!  No
signs of rodentia with the Notch but the steering box has now lost all its
oil... hopefully it will work OK for a while with the film left in it.

Tis the season!  And now I want to DRIVE to the invasion again... hopefully
I can stop screaming at gas stations soon!


Was a perfect day for her first drive of the year, mid 50s, sunshine, 
light breeze, and we have had a few soaking rains to wash the salt off 
the roads.

She ran great.  Was a little louder inside due to the fact that most of 
the interior panels and the back seat or out for re-upholstering.

Felt really good to be driving her again and am looking forward to a 
good show car season and the trip to the Invasion at the end of July.
