These April days like today Saturday April 15th, 81 degrees and sunny, are why I love April so much along with the fact that all the toys are officially out. After 6 months in hibernation the 1967 1000 HP Camaro make its 2017 car season debut the first half of the day and the Viper ACR the second half of the day (although the Viper with this super mild winter has been out at least 1 or 2 times during every month during this record setting mild winter)!

Enjoy it boys, gotta love it, 72 degrees and sunny tomorrow, and Happy Easter to everybody!!

I can't wait to enjoy the season too. I got my car out a few weeks back (first time since full restoration) and was excited for the first drive. I found a fuel leak and bad brakes. Now I'm away so I can't get it fixed and out for atleast 2 weeks.



It will only be coming out on nice days because the top is still trash and it's not spending weeks in upholstery prison.

Thanks. I did just that. New tires, fixed the fuel leak, fixed the brakes, lubed the suspension, and even installed some seat belts. It runs really good now. I still have to bolt on the NOS trim I have for it and do upholstery but I want to drive it so upholstery will wait until fall.
