Especially in the north? I've been out once, the weather has been cold and rainy and generally cr*ppy. Seems like others are having similar or worse. Is it just me or are fewer of us actually driving this spring?

The weather here has been deplorable for Spridget driving, I will be able to drive Bridget today, but rain is coming again in couple days... I think your right JP not a good driving season so far.

I drove the Miata yesterday and the Accord the day before. I drove the van last weekend.
Also, the lawn tractor. :laugh:

Worst April I can remember.
Rain and cold nearly every day.
May is not getting started very well either.
Car has been sitting A LOT this spring...

Only had it out a couple of times this year. We've had about 3 weekends when the roads got dry all year here in Western Washington. Maybe it'll stop raining on the way to Wisconsin in July.

I've had the cars on the road for a few weeks, but we've had a very wet spring here in the mountains. Heading into town this morning in the MGB. Finally feels a bit like Spring, though it is 33f here right now.

SoCal has been hot this past week. But no chance to take out the Bugeye; bummer. I suppose I'll be free as soon as it starts raining....

Don't! enjoy it for us. BTW today is lovely though a little cool. Just got back from a photo shoot with Mark (Abarth69) and his big Healey (mostly cause he needed people to push it as it isn't running) But, coming back to the point, this isn't so much a disgruntled thing and an impression (that seems to be correct) the generally, this hasn't been a good spring for LBC's except in a few places.

It finally got nice here in the past couple days. Mid 60's and sunny. I changed the engine and tranny oil and lubed the front end, and took her out today... It is good...

I just dropped my motor/trans back in last night, so given that all goes as planned, I should be on the road in a few days :smile:
