    ....is 72, sunny, mild breeze. The top is down on the Purple People Eater, and I'm fighting with my wife over steering wheel time. :) Life is good. 8)

    Oh it's easy to hate you Americans and your year round sunny weather. lol how the car running, getting easier getting started rolling uphill.? Wish I was there, sunny around 5f which is really nice as it's our winter feat for the area. Trinity and Joan went to our village green for hot dogs and fireworks last evening and today the big snow boarding competition's going strong. I'm laid up right now and getting cabin fever. But on the bright side made contact with a valeter that can prep my Z for shipment. Hopefully by months end it'll be on the big boat. Was notified my hardtop was installed along with the roll bars and deflector. Making progress. JIM

    If it makes you feel any better, they are still having bitter cold weather up north and even further east - but here in Texas it's so nice. Definitely convertible top weather.

    What would make me feel better is to look out my window and see green not white. Only six more weeks of winter to go!!

    Went out yesterday to B&Q in Norwich for some bits, Top down, blower on 1, cap pulled down to block the sun. Perfect. If it isn't raining (and the roads are fairly dry) top down and dress for the weather. Can't beat hearing the birds singing etc.
    I usually get her out once a week.

    There is a road when you come out of Lincoln which heads towards Doddington and in the spring it is lined with Rhodadendron( I hope I spelled that correctly) bushes and with top down it's a delight to drive down there, and turn round and do it again and turn round and do it again etc. The sights and sounds which you miss in a tin top.

    Jim, you need some bulldog spirit and a stiff upper lip man, relax and remember, the journey is sometimes as enjoyable as the destination..........Talking of a journey,......... It's gonna be a fine sunny day tomorrow, I think I'll take Zelda out for some more top down action.:coolsteer)

    Cheers,

    Bonzo.

    Hey Bonzo, sorry, we're heading into another cold spell of -30*C (-40's with wind chill effect) and another five days of, just what I need, SNOW!! Sunshine we get occasionally but I'd even rather have rain at this point. If I can figure out how to get a picture loaded I'll send a few shots of my cars to cheer you up. Enjoy your journey sans top. Maybe do a drive by and say hi to my car for me. JIM

    Weather has been really strange here lately. It will creep up to around 80, then the bottom falls out and it's in the 30's again, and it's even had ice on the ground a couple more times. Old lady winter doesn't want to let go this year, I wish she would just give it up and let spring run wild. :)
