CONGRATS John, that's great buddy! The C6 ZR1 is one HECK of a machine, enjoy it in good health!. Second straight day out for me in the Viper ACR took her too work today also (to bad while driving my Viper) that work is only 5 minutes away (but still went for a little power blast). Lol.

Just 9 days now left until Calendar Spring!

Got caught in light rain with roof off on I-55 going to Rise and Drive back in the day and to my astonishment I remained dry.
Of course there were no stop lights and the rain ended before I had to stop.

I was in a downpour from the Smokies to Indy last fall, kept waiting for the top to drip. Didn't!

Drove mine the last two evenings. Might get to take it to work on Friday if the weather report holds up. It's nice to be back into car season. Even if it's very touch and go right now.

Two warm days have done great things for the snow piles along my driveway!!

Went to the Sec of State, Schaumburg, yesterday and had my plate renewal pushed back two months. It was the end of April and every time I went the guy told me, you didn't fail, you didn't pass. You need to log more miles to set a history for the sensors in the computer. 500 miles later it still wasn't enough. Hopefully the end of June will help with that headache. Friggin IL...

I know Jim from way back, great guy, thought he was retired.

John, come on, you know better to take your new baby out when thunderstorms (some with hail) and major rain and winds were on the radar today and forecasted.

Goods news is that your baby won't melt and spring is just 6 days away!

Ya, it was a dumb *** move, Jim still has the shop, he might be semi retired, because he showed up at 1 to do some aligning for me, and he is a great guy.
