We had a very nice 75 degree day today with lots of sun. In our little town of 900 residents I saw several British cars out enjoying the day. First, at the hardware store, a resident drove up in his Healey 104. Next, I drove by another guy out washing his Lotus Super 7 prior to taking it for a drive. Last, as I was at out post office in my BE, another guy drove by in his TR3. We are so lucky to have so many enthusiasts in town. I know there are at least six more frequent drives that I did not see, but I'll bet they were thinking about getting out for a drive. I hope many of you on the forum are out in your cars as the weather turns warmer.

Bugsy was out and about running errands yesterday and past few days. Oh the new front end makes him so much more fun to drive. Yes it was close to $500 in labor and materials to get the front end totally rebuilt with major suspension kit, new wishbone bushings, kingpind, etc. but oh the difference in handling and driving comfort. I did not know what it meant for the front emd to feel tight before. I do now. Next chore swapping for a Geo MEtro radiator is on the list before I tackle some more bodywork.
