Default Anyone driving today

Today is drive your drive your Ford V-8 day. I am here in St. Paul, MN ready to drive, but waiting on the rain to clear. This will be my first time participating in the drive as my car was still in the shop last year. Have fun, be safe and burn a little gas.

Probably not here in north-central "Rainesota" (or is it "Coldesota"?). The weather really sucks up here the last couple of years.

We could use some of that global warming here too. I'll drive the 48 today.

The weather is beautiful (but a little humid) here today. I took the '38 on an hour spin around the backroads here this morning. I am usually able to drive it 2-4 times weekly year-round.

Weather is beautiful here in the Valley. 79 degrees, hardly a cloud in the sky and the humidity is about 40%. Took my 8ba to one show this morning and I am leaving for another in about an hour. Good thing these are today, it's supposed to rain most of next week!

Just drove from Pendine Sands to home. 180 miles. The 33 coupe with the Pilot 21 stud never missed a beat.
Got times at 76.something on the beach too!

Sweet!
