Hang in there, Geoff!
Down here Spring came and went in a couple of weeks and we've had and early, and oppressive summer. Since the beginning of March temperatures have been in the mid-90's F. Not conducive to inspiring one to get out into the garage and bathe in Georgia humidity...

Summer arrived at 3 PM on July 1st! The temperature went up into the low 70s and it was like it again today! I was even under the car for 30 minutes bleeding the clutch. Great fun.

Have you considered filling a swimming pool with motor oil and just driving in?

That my loaner car cover you got the oil on Geoffrey? Once they get their oil choices figured out, what do TR7 owners use to get oil off of car covers?

THEY use the commercial washing machines at Mighty Whites! I bought a cover of my own that fits better so I can clean yours and return it with thanks. The 15 foot universal cover at Princess Auto fits perfectly.

Nice prose, Geoff. Evocative of all LBCs.
"If all else fails, read the instructions. If that fails, follow them."

Ahh Geoff me laddie, I know this little bit of prose is gonna kill ya but here goes anyway. Tuesday was a lovely evening so I decided to take the studs off the Mazda 3 Sport and put the summer socks on her. I put her in the garage and did the dirty deed and when it came time to roll her out ya know the TR6 was just sittin' there all pretty in the driveway just waitin' ta get rolled back in and be put back ta bed fer a few more sleeps. That new set of Yokohama 205/70 - 15's were jest cryin' out ta be road tested and.... well, the keys weren't on the nail by the cupboard lad, they were in the ignition so I fired the rascal up and had a wee blast down the Horse Cove Line as far as St. Philips by the sea. Sure, there's no sweeter sound than the throaty roar of that straight six shattering the stillness of the Spring evening and the locals muttering "there's that silly bugger from Paradise in the bright white sports car, goin' lickety %ss tear in the Line agin". Anyway, them new Yokes sure are sticky compared to t

Robbie Burns is it? Wee tremulous locals. Your story was cut off. The Yokohams are sticky compared to...?

Anyway, my car is still in hiding. I had an appointment on Tuesday for MVR inspection but I postponed it for a week. There's wet snow in the forecast which means road-salt several times next week. I think I'll take the day off work, get the in-transit, get the inspection, get the plates, drive around a bit and put the car back to bed for another 2 weeks.
