  • Christine gets a bath

    Christine just got a bath, getting ready for a shakedown run to Raleigh. It's about 160 miles round trip. If everything goes ok, she should make it to Tri-State.

    She's looking better and better. Now what about the owners' baths before we leave tomorrow morning?

            Well, I pushed her. I mean I pushed her hard. She screamed and I laughed. I should probably be arrested for Commander abuse. She held together. I had a couple of transmission hiccups, but I expected to have a couple of issues. I think I'll go a little easier on the way home.
            I'm tickled with the way she runs. It should be a good trip to the mountains.

              WONDERFUL!

              I always drove her hard, she seemed to love it. The 259 in that car is a strong little engine and sounds great with the dual exhaust I put on. Glad you're as pleased as I was!

              It's only 4 hours from here to the Tri-State meet. I'm gonna run over there Saturday just to see Christine.
