It has 4 wheel fully adjustable so lots of bit to fiddle with.

Looking forward to that when….. I get the seats back.  Did find a shop in Plano that specializes in custom alignments.

That’s great!  Do you have the alignment specs to tell them? 

I still have the same tires on my car from its alignment seven years ago and there is still no uneven wear.  Plus it handles great.

Survived Caffeine & Octane this morning. This was the first time in a new location so it was a zoo. Hot, no shade at all. Used the tow dolly to take it as it across town from me. It was their British car day so probably 60 British cars there together of all types. This event bills itself as the largest car show in the country with an average of 3000 cars each time. I stayed close to the moke to keep an eye on it and answer questions. Been there, done that now. Just too large for me. I will go to more local smaller car shows now.

I'm pretty much over car shows unless they're at a venue where I can get into the A/C. Earlier this year our All British was at a really nice venue and even tho it was in the 90's I was able to get into a nice cool air conditioned mall that had a great food court, so double win.

I hear you. I’m deciding whether or not to take my ‘88 Mini to the ABCD car show in Austin this Sunday where temperatures are expected to be about 97° by 2 PM.   It’s a 90 min drive back home after the show and is definitely no fun in the Mini in the heat.

It just occurred to me instead I could drive my 2002 R53 Cooper S which has the magic of a/c.  It’s 20 years old now and I guess I could even put it in the show. Or just be a spectator and leave when I want.  Hmmmm.

Yeah, the R53 will be almost as unusual by now as a classic - and it has A/C!!!!   77.gif

We've had a break in our weather - high today of 64? Maybe it will cool down by the weekend?

Why isn't Michael driving his almond green car with its A/C?

Dave,

My Almond Green Mini is at a consignement dealer where I am trying to sell it.  It has to be at their showroom.

I will be going to the car show Bruce mentioned as a spectator this year since the blue panel Van is still "in progress".

In prior years, the show had a class for "New MINIs" that Bruce's would go in.  The last few years, there has been no cars show up for that class.
