Almost Speechless!!

WoW !!!!! Thanks Mike..... going for a ride in Vall's "Mouse trap" is just what we need to get thru the 4" of snow we had yesterday.

I am sure you guys will agree there is a "different" feeling riding in or driving a "mini-hot rod/gasser. Like many of you, I have had quite a bit of cars/hot rods over the years.... some with MUCH MORE horsepower & torque than our Opel..... but the Opel's compact (cramped) interior & short wheel base somehow magnifies the intense feeling you experience when you drive. Whether it be idling thru the parking lot at the local hamburger joint or blasting down the 1/4 mile.

Can't wait for Spring..... warm weather later this week.

Thanks Mike! I've been wanting to take a video for awhile! Glad you were able to make the get together, and your Impala is really a nice car! Hope to see the '55 gasser on the road soon!

Took most of today cruising around and stopping to see friends and customers I worked with before retiring in 2010. Nice to put lots of miles on the Austin, but nice to visit friends too!

It's always good to visit with old friends, especially those whom we haven't seen in some time, it warms the spirit. :) And of course, it's nice to be loggin' miles if you have your "ride" to show.
