    The rain has come and cleared the roads of salt and Sunday is supposed to be cloudy but no rain and above freezing. Planning on taking a drive if anyone interested. Give me a yell.--Bob

    Same, and the traffic is horrible with all those heading for the malls. Took me about 15 minutes to get from Concord Mall to 202 and Route 1.

    Just testing the waters Dave. Will see what the response is and make a plan.
    Josh got a pro car mount system for mounting video on the outside of cars like in full length movies so we are gonna want to test it out by having some people follow.
    I will keep an eye on here and post again later. Bob

    Jon, Didn't think you were back till end of January. That would probably work for me. That would give it time to dry up. We'll meet you at Lantana (Dave- off Rt 7-- Limestone Rd. and Valley Rd in Hockessin Delaware) at 11 AM. Depending on who wants to meet we can either go Northeast, straight North or Northwest. I would prefer Northwest because of traffic that will build by that time of day, but we can see who else wants to go. Bob

    I may make the meet, but not the drive. Getting to Lantana is a drive for me. My 14 & 16 year old nephews sleep until noon. (I say it's sloth, my brother says they need their rest. Then under my breath I say, to do what? Sleep until noon again?).

    Yea, Jon and the Maimster met us and we had a great drive north into horse country where we stopped and let Spielberg set-up his video . Started at the curve on 841 and ran an awesome loop with this big rig on the car. I was so excited for Josh I forgot to take pictures of the set-up (Duhhhh). Previewed the film, but Josh will be working on it for a while. It really works great. He will be experimenting all the time so we will be needing some other cars at some point (although it's hard to top that wild looking yellow GT3).
    BTW Joe Zaff. We ended up at the Whip for a fantastic lunch.
    Thanks again Jon. Josh will have the video up soon.

    UGGHHHH!!!! I wish I had been there. My car is in full hibernation mode until Spring under her little red car cover. Fully detailed inside and out, battery disconnected, battery tender on, and fuel stabilizer in tank.

    Even with the beautiful weather, it would just be too much of a PITA to have to do that whole process again.

    Well Joe, you need to get a Miata or something just to drive during the winter months. There are no shows,no crowds of onlookers to impress in the short days of Winter...but there are plenty of driving days and socializing opportunities to be had. For Pete's sake buy yourself a used Subaru WRX for 14K for the winter and then drive it on the Winter Rallys. Its a great 4 wheel drive four door family car!!! Jon

    Its funny you should mention that! Originally, I was going to trade in the Accord for something more sporty and looked at every 4 seat automatic out there but I simply couldn't find a car that was as practical as the Accord and sporty enough for our weekend jaunts (don't say, how about a BMW, I have spent a year and change looking for a E36 M3 Auto sedan with low mileage and I haven't liked ANYTHING they have introduced in the last decade)

    Funny you should mention that, recently I have been totally smitten with the old C4 corvettes, especially the ZR1's and am casually looking.

    I love taking the Mondial out, but I love babying her just as much. The Mondial is a car I want to keep for the rest of my life, and hopefully pass on. People think I am crazy, but my little back mondial really is my perfect car--and I don't say that lightly. Accordingly, I am doing my best to find the right balance between enjoyment and preservation.

    Now, if you want me to join you guys in the Accord, just let me know... ;)

    Thanks buddy! I really appreciate it, and if you guys are cool with me taking my DD, I am all in. I really miss these winter drives and the camaraderie. Bob, if you would like me to drive the "film car", I appreciate the offer and I am in for that too.

    I want to warn you ahead of time, if I take the Honda, I may buy a couple of Scuderia shields on the fenders :) :) :)
