    What is this snow stuff I keep reading about? It's 96 today and should be 101 degrees tomorrow here in Laredo, TX.

    Roadster looks outstanding I'm envious for sure! Almost 70 here yesterday spent all day in the shop trying to clean it up. Today can't get out of the 30s didn't get out there to do anything!
    Yeah COME ON SPRING!

    HEHEHEHEHEHEHE! I wish we could have more of a typical winter down here. Down here our seasons run about like this: Summer typically runs from March/April to about mid November. Then we have a weird fall-spring mix from late November to March with maybe a week of a mild winter thrown in the mix. I guess how you guys think about winter cold I think about summer heat. It can get depressing when it's 10 o'clock at night and still 95 degrees.

    I'll pass on the 96-101* stuff.... That's too Damn Hot, even for summer.

    Thanks on the roadster, the weather here in Tennessee is a finicky bitch. Sometimes good, sometimes shitty.... Gotta pick your poison. :rolleyes:

    Thanks, we are in the 49 percentile on the Roll Bar. Either way, it's been there since '56 and it's staying. Here's a pic from '57 on the first drive. Roll Bar is there....

    Same pipes in 1977.... The "After Header" changed for the worse, but still mostly the same 20 years and thousands of miles later. ;) Sans Roll Bar at this point tho.

    Two Feet..... That's crazy.

    I flew into Chicago alot of years ago, to see Pantera in concert (in April). In the WalMart parking lot there was what I thought from the plane to be a HUGE white tent.... It was a snow pile.

    Being from Tennessee it was an unbelievable sight. We have a couple months of cold weather, but usually none of that white stuff you call snow....

    The concert was great, the weather was terrible. ;)

    We do get that white stuff, but it's RARE.

    Thanks RickyBop..... I'm glad to be the custodian of this VERY historical car.

    Drove mine about 175 miles yesterday, Holland, MI to Chicago, IL. No heat either as my heater core is bad, but it was about 35 or so, and the sun was out, so worked out well! Still itching for some warmer days, which look like they're coming soon!
     
  20. Without pictures, did it really happen??

    We came to Austin for the HR Revolution and fell in love with Texas.

    You should just bring that coupe down here for the winters.... I'd be glad to keep it exercised. ;)
