This outing was covered more fully in the main blog (see the Pre-Hibernation Ritual). This machine never disappoints. It starts without fail, runs like a champ with its original 2.2, and delivers big smiles per mile. You can be a hooligan, or head for the mountains or the shore for a weekend, or drive to Limerock and do a few spirited "parade laps". On this day, we were hooning around the countryside in a mixture of machinery including much more modern performance machines. No problem.
