In the 60s here in upstate NY. Tried to get a drive in yesterday, but had electrical troubles. Got it sorted out and took a nice drive today.

Since your brought it up. . . Today is sunny and 50 degrees. I took the '55 President out for a drive to Dairy Queen for a burger. I felt like a kid again.

I decided to take our '57 GH out for a post winter shake down cruise.
After checking all of his vitals, I took him to the gas station for some fresh fuel.
On the way back he started to rattle, I shut him down and called the Auto Club to bring him home.
The next day, I removed the oil pan, and discovered 2 spun connecting rod bearings on the #5 and #6 journal.
So......It looks like late spring or early summer before he gets out again......:mad:

It was a fine weekend in the upper Midwest, wasn't it. Got an oil change on my Studebaker, battery back in, and it started right up. Worked on my sons driver, and got a third car out of the shop so the Stude could take it's place. Checked a bunch of tire pressures, then moved the boat around so it can be accessed.
All just a bunch of general puttering about really. But now all the toys are in the their "summer" spots. Game on.
