Lol, The roads are fun to drive out here. And yes my car needs washed again. I have a funny newspaper pic to put up when I get back home.

Got a damn cracked windshield on my way to work. Phantom rock - came out of nowhere. Never saw it before or after - it just scared the crap out of me.

It hit right at the base of the glass between the wipers - three two inch cracks in a half star. Must get it repaired, damnit.

Check with your insurance company. Many of them have a windshield clause that will cover it with no expense to you. My company allows me get a new windshield for free every 3 years.

I drove it about 400 miles today, from my house down to Carolina beach, and around Wilmington, took mostly back roads on the way home. It was a perfect day for a top down cruise to the beach.

Cleaned under hood. The valve cover corroded over that winter but looks great now.

Bought tire sealant and 12v tire pump (bye spare), engine oil/filter, synthetic diff and tranny fluid. I'm ready for April now.

The other day was 29C, wish I could have went driving with the top down. Just over two weeks till my drivers test.

Amazing what a little paint can do, should do the intake manifold next. Then go at the engine bay with a few rolls of paper towels and some simple green.
