My GTCS is Almost Here

I am getting excited. The GTCS I purchased from joeymiami is about 2.5 hours away. Sam, the transport driver called from Akron this morning asking if if 8:00a tomorrow is too early. Are you kidding me? Then he called about an hour ago saying he had enough time left and could deliver it about 7:30 tonight. I said that would be just fine by me.

I hope the Florida battery in the car has some oomph in it as it is about zero here now. It will be a good test of he battery.

Any way you can keep that red 1968 Florida plate on the car? It takes some special effort here to get one of those.

Not sure I understand. I would assume the prior owner took it off.

Yeah, you're going to have to put an IL license on there - do they let you use vintage plates?

Not sure but I am sure it would have to be an Illinois plate. I am going to check that out.

Congrats on your car! What a thrill to have it delivered. I had to get mine at -22 F from a storage lot in Montana. Took an hour for it to have enough juice to start. Welcome to Canada I said to the car. Hasn't seen winter since!

Well, she made it to her new home. Started right up and it is minus three degrees out there. Pretty good for a Florida gal. The GTCS stripes are actually black but the flash on the camera turned them white.
