This morning brought a surprise break in the clouds, so I took the roadster out for a picture in full sunlight.


I also took advantage of the brief break in the weather for a test drive around the block (two miles) to try out the new Stutzman wheels. I was pleased to find that at cruising speed (35 mph) the car didn't wander all over the road. Looks like I'm ready for some real driving now.

Steve,

Can I go for a ride tomorrow afternoon ?

Maybe there is a place we can have dinner at ....


Freighter Jim

You bet. That's weather dependent, of course. I don't have the top fixed yet. :-)

Tires are a little to white Steve. Need some road grime to tone them down a bit. Have fun and get tham dirty.
Drive safe and often

Steve, I would love to see your place sometime. It intrigues me.

Sure thing, Marty. Any time you're down this way give me a call and you can have a guided tour of the junk pile.

Gil, I probably could have. I think it was put together about forty years ago.
:-)

Steve,

Great photo and it shouldn't be long before the weather is great for driving - even with the top down.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Steves place is built of fossil rich stone, it's amazing.

Hey Steve- with the concerns about white tires turning brown, possibly because of Vietnamese made tubes- I wanted to ask where you purchased your tubes from?

Freighter Jim: You don't know what you are letting yourself in for when you mention eating. when I stopped by there in 2012 I took him to lunch, and the had to close the place we ate at as there was no food left! Ask Steve how well they fed him, and I think maybe he has stock in the place or a stock option. Just warning you, don't say I did not warn you.



Steve go easy on Jim, as he needs money for fuel and expenses.



Just kidding Steve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gilbert : He was at the Factory when it came off the the assembly line, in fact he may have driven it out the door!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the tubes from Universal. I can't look at them now to be sure, but I think they're European. These tyres are NOS New Zealanders, so I expect "the brown thing" will not be a problem.

Steve you have a very beautiful home and as always your pictures are wonderful thanks for sharing.

Steve, Thanks!!!! I don't make it over that way very often, but maybe if I go to Chikasha next year, it would be a stop.

That ol' runabout do look good with those whitey-tighties! Pun not intended but if it makes it funny by chance... ;-)
I wanted to type "That ol' Go-Devil" but I'd get told.
Yikes! 35 miles per hour?!
Great pic Steve!
