I would gladly send you our rain James.

I am hoping that it will blow over as today, wednesday, is show and shine day here, At A&W.
I need to wash the car inside and out as I have been driving it to work every day (rain or shine)

I should knock the dust off the engine as well. ahhhh

I want to put the work covers that I got from Roger, on, when I get there.

you wont believe this James but we had overnight temps below zero the other day :(

The current weather where the trip is at should be a nice late summer day.....mid 80s in your lingo.

Looks more like you found a 928 and a replica of a Porsche, but maybe it is the real deal!

Glad your trip went well and the 928 performed as it should! FLAWLESSLY! Gotta love a good road trip in a 928!

The 'replica' was stated as a '54 IIRC.......same car that James Dean was killed in I think?

So many cars.....so much time, work and money......the gearheads had a great time and is the biggest weekend for the community......all good :D

James Dean was killed in a 550 spyder... nothing like that Speedster. An original 550 spyder today would set you back MANY millions of US dollars. An original speedster $100k probably at most...if it were beyond perfect and original. No comparison between the two.

Of course you can get really decent running and looking replicas of either one for $45k...or less if you are willing to do the building yourself!
