I am setting up my new computer, and moving the photos into archives. I found my 911's crest is two different places, both covered in frost. I am sure glad my 911 has the fantastic heater Porsche engineers designed. We were toasty warm in less than a mile of driving.

Nah.....just pulled it out to re-arrange stuff in the shop. It’s bedded down now until April at least.

We salt and sand the roads so heavily in New England, that I can't imagine driving these cars in the winter.

Picking the right time, after storm clean up and hopefully a cleansing rain. Oh yeah, we avoid SALTY parking lots too!

After each lap you must perform mandatory warm water pressure wash and then wheels off-undercarriage wipe down!

Never pass up a chance to drive my Frankenine! ;-)
