    Default Disappointment

    last ride of the Sunbird? I hope you only mean for the season?

    I also went for a cruise just to get in a "cold start" on the new carb settings and she did very well. I think I got the carb about 90% dialed in. I still am amazed how hard this car pulls! I'll have to hook up the GoPro on a run this weekend.

    But in the meantime......

    Love the sound.

    I didn't know you named your car, but I did notice your plate. My wife is superstitious and would have insisted on a different plate if that is what DMV was to offer.

    Made me think of an MG I checked out a while ago.

    Sorry. It's easy to say, "There's next season", but that doesn't cut it, right?

    Reminds me of the first car show I went to with my 66. Mind you, it was the first time I would show off my newly acquired Vette. This was the biggest Corvette show in the area, and sponsored by the top-selling Corvette dealer on Long Island. Anyway, I drive the 35 miles to get there, and when I do, no show! I'm like, WTF???

    The show was held the week prior. I had my dates wrong.

    We still have plenty of cruise nights. Most go until OCT. Having the time N weather, play a big role of narrowing down what I can attend. Will still have the GTO to play with until Oct.

    nah Carl, I've never really ever named cars and the plate had the opposite effect on me, I like the plate!

    Now did you pass on the car because you were superstitious about the plate?

    or because the car is doo doo brown? with lighter diarrea doo doo brown interior?

    OR BECAUSE YOU know ALL BRITISH cars have bad wiring issues?

    just sayin........

    on a side note, FLORIDA Please ditch the baby blue "Antique" plates and go back to the red/white "collector" plates.
