I'm really tempted but as you say, quite a bit of salt, dirt and puddles from the melting snow around here still. After Wednesday supposed to start climbing in tempts again so I think I can wait a bit longer. Really need some rain to clean things up.

Had mine out yesterday all afternoon . Just couldn't wait any longer .
I chose the heavily travelled roads and they were clean, high, and dry . I'm sure I had a lot more salt on my breakfast than I got on my car !

Went through half a tank of gas ... it was great ! ! :D:D
 
Glad to hear you had her out Jim...... I bet that was the longest winter you remember...

Did the front brakes (rotors & Pads) on my baby yesterday. Now as soon as I can get the time and weather it will be the big spring clean-up...and oil change..... Should be out and about with-in a couple of weeks...weather depending of course.
 
I caved..lol The roads looked good..Didnt see much salt anywhere

Went out and ran some errands and took it for a stretch on the Don valley......Dam! that car hauls ass!!! :) And its stock..LOL Smile from ear to ear the whole time cruising in town.

Good to be back behind the wheel :).....Now I think will give her an oil change this afternoon in the garage

Good for you ! My smile still hasn't worn off !

I went into CTC today to get the Mobil 1 on sale but they were sold out ! I guess everyone has the same idea at the same time . I'll go back during the week or get a rain check .

Also gotta get 'er in for an alignment ... now that spring is finally here, time will start flyin' by ! ! :)
 
A black C4 went buy our place this afternoon. Lots of dirt, sand, salt and grit on the roads though. Some water running out on the road in places. I'll leave ours in for another week or so. A good rain or two is still needed before taking the car out.
 
I've been busy painting my rally rims this past week. Finally finished up last night so I put the trim rings and center caps back on today. Man, do they look nice now! Also installed new door sill trim that I ordered some time ago. Looks so much better when you open the door now. I was tempted to go for a short run but still too much dust and salt around our parts so I settled for backing it out of the garage and letting it warm up for a bit. Rain tomorrow and snow for Monday and Tuesday here so it's going to be another week a least but I'm getting ready to cruise. :driving:

Had mine out again and had a ball -- well for a short run anyway. about 40 clicks. Felt good tho the back end kept wiggling. I wonder why?;)

I have to wait until Tuesday to get my car on the road.
I have seasonal plates, so I can't get those until April 1, and that happens to fall on a holiday this year :mad:
I can't wait to get my new stickers, and the following week, we take it on a road trip to Augusta GA, to see the Masters.
It will be a great 1st road trip of the season. We plan on making lot's of stops on the way back home. :D
 
You Ontario folk are making us Alberta folk jealous!! Even if the snow melted, the potholes are too much around here.

Always hawking for holes (an old habit) --- so far I've succeeded in missing them all. -- this spring has been not too bad so far.

Cloudy and drizzly today but the rest of the week promises some driving weather and next weekend promises some cleansing rains/

Hauled her out of storage yesterday!
Great excuse for me and my youngest son to go to 'Timmies' for a coffee. No replacement for the smile when I offered that he drive home. Too cool yet for top down driving but we'll be on the watch for the warmer weather to come!
 
I have to admit hearing Colin talk about "rear end wiggle" did my smile no end of good!

Starting to look at flight info to test the car. Still problematic. I have my son from the 2nd or 3rd until the 8th when he'll head back to school. Then the crowns to my teeth on the 9th, then my son again on the 11th.........if it ends up being a short week I could fly out on the afternoon of the 13th.........

If my son was older I'd bring him down with me but I'm not sure how well he'd do for a few days of listening to "dada" talking cars. Any Pokemon conventions in town??!!

That might be the best I can do and sort of shows why bring able to drive it back is not a likely outcome for me. Oh snow why did you do this to me??

LOL Garry, I don't think I pushed hard enough to spin so maybe it was cold tires/pavement etc .... hard to say for sure. Not been very warm lately.
-- and mine has 'only' 561 hp and 531 tq.!! More than enough for me to get in trouble with....
