Running and Driving

Classic Velocity

The car is now running, and a million small things have been sorted out. Turn signals, horn, a little brake shudder, fluid changes, etc. More importantly, the car has been driven around a bit in order to build some confidence. It feels a bit high strung at highway speeds since it has no overdrive, but I was reminded by a forum member that these cars were intended to live high in the rev band at speed. It just seems counter-intuitive to have a big luxury car sound anything other than relaxed. I will need to get used to it....
