i just put the vr1 oil in (i did use kendall last awhile back...seemed to work). anyhow we have 55F today here...sunny...and salt free roads. took the wifey out for a quick (first) ride of the season. Lil' Rose started right up...well a few turns of the motor. drove really well...and all my lights work !!! I am usually good for one bad ground on a tail light or so. suprisingly my tires didn't lose any air pressure over the past 5 months.... weird...

anyway ...here is to another fun driving season.... smiling smiley

another thing....dare i say it.... My Spitfire is becoming (or is), more reliable than my wife's 2010 Mercedes. (i know that isn't saying much)

Frank you better touch wood...

Tomorrow is the 15 Beware the Ides of March. Its a traditional Roman day of reckoning, if you believe Shakespeare.

I got out for a little while yesterday half the roads I drove on were still salty. I'm glad you were able to sneak a ride in before winter hits us again.

I've been using kendall in mine since I got it seems to be running fine. It helps I buy the 15W40 in drums for my trucks so to me it's readily available.
