Well,
After driving my TR7 only, for a week, I HAD to take the Buick to pick some stuff up.

MAN.. DO I FEEL SLOW AND OLD NOW.

And, alas.. The Triumph goes in hybernation in another week. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cryin.gif Especially wrong since it has been around 80 degrees here for over a week. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
Oh Well.

Paul. I feel your pain! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif I was driving a Volvo wagon today, and I felt like I was ready for shuffleboard, and a hot toddy.
But, I'm driving my Midget until the snow flies and the salt trucks come out! Which, if todays weather was any indication, will be all too soon.

I too am rueing the day in the not too distant future when I put the Spider to bed for her long winter's nap. However, weather here's not too bad. Hope the hibernaton is long way off, as my other vehicles (2000 DeVille and 91 F250 4x4) are about a different from the Spider as can be. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazyeyes.gif

I have two VW Passats to play with during the inclement weather /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Yeah, I feel your pain. I sold my GT6 last month and I'm waiting on a new MINI Cooper S to satisfy by sports car jones.

Can't wait to get my hands on it! I may have to get another Triumph next spring, too.

It's a gamble, but I don't put my '80 TR-7 Spider up for the winter - and in Maine, that's serious winter. I do have a '66 Land Rover Series II-A for problem driving times, but the TR-7 is really a great snow car. The extra wear and mileage do cause pain, though.

Best wishes,

Jeff

Are you in Vinalhaven all year round? Neat place I'll bet.

Is there any surf there? I've gone to the Owl's Head museum with my dad lots of times.

To me, miles and wear are a plus. Its the salt corrosion that breaks my heart. .

I think the reason the 7 makes a good snow car is it has the natural ability to burrow beneath the snow with its cheese wedge design.

/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gifI need to get my F-250 put back together before it snows so I can put up the Stag. The Spitfire doesn't run or even have a top, don't care about that. I do have a beater Dodge 600 convert that is going to do snow duty. But then again, the weather out here is generally pretty nice year 'round, and even better, no salt! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
