Here is a Mad Dog for your troubles!
Maybe some day you can be the lover to Russian monarchy.
I need to get the 90 Mini back on the road. Time to get back to the fuel system modifications. What’s your plan for the day?
In the spirit of some of Sweden’s posts, the big D is looking for some folks in the TechOps engineering org. There are likely to be some more in the next couple of months along with some in our quality org. It’s a good place to work. We run hard, but they take pretty good care of us.
I dropped my son at Boy Scouts and sat in the parking lot watching the Hot Rod Power Tour video by Roadkill. We were there when they were filming with the Maverick. think I saw the Fiero and the Plymouth. We were also there for the Mustang burnouts.

You’ve done dumber things!
Spending some time with family out west this week. Swung by the Evergreen Museum to see the Hughes H-1 Hercules. Some kids call it the Spruce Goose. It’s a lovely plane.

My first movie choice for the flight back to Atlanta from Seoul is the documentary about Hurley Haywood. Whoever is picking the movies for us is a race fan. Good doc as well!
