I had to take advantage of this rare clear, dry and warm (50+) weather this weekend here in Oregon and stretch the legs on my '65 BJ8 good times........
The weatherman says could be dry until February, anyone else out driving?

Doug,
That's a beautiful photo!...and a beautiful car. I may have to find one of them after I finish restoring my 57 BN4.

Nope, can't get em out of the garage. We've had a series of little snows - couple inches each, that keeps the back lot outside of the garage either snow covered or muddy when it melts. Maybe later this week. I hate to let them sit this long! :frown:

I agree, great photo! A good candidate for the 2012 calendar section.

Weathers been good down here in California too. Even though I don't have the material on my top frame, I still drive it to the hardware store. Yup, to buy parts for the top. :yesnod:

Been driving mine regularly (Texas is awesome!). It was a bit chilly driving it to work Friday morning (OK, more than a bit), but now that the heater works (as of this weekend), I think it'll be more enjoyable next time. Probably tomorrow morning in fact... looks like a partly sunny 50-ish day tomorrow :thumbsup:

Up here (Lake Tahoe) im ski country, its been in the 50's. That called for a nice trip around the lake (72 miles plus a side trip to Truckee of another 30 miles). Top up of course as it was 18 degrees in the morning. Ground dry, snow piled everywhere. Very beautiful. I don't recall driving the Healey in January before. This was a test of the new water pump (wife says,"Yea, sure".) Gas was $3.80.
