Took my 94 year old mother for a ride of her lifetime. She loves my Corvette. No problem for her getting in but took a little bit of time for her to get out. Now getting ready to take her to dinner but in the Lexus this time.

Went to mom's house for mothers day lunch. She helped me wash, wax, and detail the corvette so it would be ready for summer heat. Mom was always into cars a little bit so it was fun. My brothers couldn't make it into town so just us. Funny thing is, she was and still is a better driver than my dad. But we never tell him that.

She pointed out I need to clean up the wheel wells and do a better job getting dust off the wheels. Gonna have to break out the scrub brush next time.

Cleaned it, changed the clutch fluid, then beat her like she owes me money. Been raining alot here in MD so it was nice to finally get out and lay into it a bit.

Changed my oil and filter on Saturday. Cleaned it up inside to get ready for a 3 day road trip on the weekend.
Will clean up the outside on Thursday prior to leaving very early Friday morning.

I also added the addresses of all the hotels, restaurants and places that we are visiting on the trip, into the OEM Nav unit Memory Points.

This is our first small 1200 mile return road trip for the 2016 season.
