in the previous page pictures I like the way you filled in the gap between the two cement tracks on your driveway, I did similar with brick samples but it got slippy with moss and became a pain to clear - our damp climate here I suppose :ponder:

I then rode her out for coffee and made a short tour of the local freeway system before returning home. Nothing like a quick blast down I70 to blow the dust off. On the short to-do for this year are a sump gasket replacement, an oil change and a carburetor tuning. And can you believe I've already had her long enough for the plates to expire?

Soo what ever happened to her? I thought for sure you'd convince the new owner to join the site.
