My God, It’s Still There

Exercising my visiting privileges, I engaged with the Blue Rascal today.  All fluids and readings look good, and I considered doing a needed underhood cleanup and detailing.  Kept out of the rain today, though.20170315-D61_1716-Edit 20170315-D61_1723

Resurrection

Kevin and I visited the Blue Rascal today (and checked out his 951 and his BMW 320i project, too).  After sitting too long in cold storage during the last several weeks of untimely low temps and much snow, the thing started fairly easily, ran strong and bit into the corners during a good warmup cruise and checkout.  Weather is warming now, and the streets are mostly clear, although we ran into a bit of rain.20170304-DSCN2095-Edit

The Arizona Desert, 1968

Some rediscovered photographs from a Los Angeles-to-Phoenix rip across the desert in August heat, foot to the floor.    In those days you could (or perhaps I was just lucky) run the desert pretty much flat out.  Never overheated.  Except for self.
