Deb, you car looks awesome, I LOVE IT!!! Looking forward to picking up one of those Bad *** ZR1s in about 2 years, about the same time I also plan on start living in much warmer (non-winter) climates during the winter months!

Merry Christmas to you and I know I don't have to tell you to drive that Big Wing BAMF every chance you get (b/c unlike most, you are already doing that)!

Got her out to change the oil and antifreeze, lube, check hoses and lines and to top off the gas tank. The truck is a '68.

Missouri isn't part of the Great Lakes, but we do have some "great" lakes here in the southern area of MO!
Anyway, it's no biggy getting the Vette (or the motorbike) out & riding in December with temps in the mid 50's & not a snowflake in sight (except the false snow on the tree!)

One of the best Decembers I can ever remember as I have had my Viper ACR and 911 Turbo S out just about every day, stealing any day away that I can from old man winter, and its been great!

If January and February could be just 1/2 as cooperative as December was that would be great!!

Merry Christmas to everyone here and wishing you and your families and Happy and Healthy New Year!

Definitely salted the highways and tonight also will lead to a little set back but nothing we can't handle. This will all melt tomorrow as you know it will be about 39 degrees and sunny and then 37 degrees on Monday and rain to wash away the salt and get us back on the road (for now).

Happy New Year everybody. Hoping its a Happy and Healthy New Year 2019 to everyone here.
