Default #676 goes for her first ride

only around the block a few times to make sure all is ok. She goes to CHP on Tuesday for a VIN assignment. Only problem wa that the speedo isn't working. I'll have to give Doug a call on Monday.

Rears are 335x35x17 Michelin Pilot Sport. It was the closest thing I could find to road magnets.

I just went around the block...never go out of second gear. I can see that some seat time will be needed to get confident. I had to drive in my slippers because the pedals were so close!

Way to go Joe. Glad to see another car in Kalifornia. I assume you already have an SB100 number for this year?? If not I may see you at DMV on Jan 3, 2005.
