I can't make the run on Friday (work swing), but plan on being at the show on Sat. I think I'll drag the beast out of the garage for a spin down the 405. I'm not going to enter, just a good reason to open her up.

I put a thermometer on my wood steps the other afternoon and the thing only goes to 130...LOL...and it shot up past it to about 135 because it wouldn't go any farther. The lake was calm and refreshing today though and I went for a spin on the waverunner. I keep my place like an icebox inside! Death Valley's got nothing on Havasu!

(68 special) I am planning on entering the show and shine on Sunday. The car is a little ruff and not even close to being able to enter the MCA judged class on Saturday.

Donna, sounds like you know how to adapt to the sweltering weather and have fun while your doing it!

Dang, missed it. I just got back from 8 days of rafting on the Salmon river and am leaving tomorrow for another 5 day trip, and then gone for more after that. See you all in August.

After 4 days of wrenching, My Wife and I drove the GT/CS and entered it into the show and shine. It was nice to get her back on the road (the car that is). This was a huge event, 1,400 mustangs, cougars, shelbys, saleens etc..! I parked next to two other GT/CS's. They had an 07' shelby and two 07' hurstz shelbys on display. Saleen also had a huge display. There was every kind of mustang you could name, 427 shelbys, boss 429, 351, 302's. Only took one pic with the GT/CS's parked together. Will have to download when I get a chance.

It was 110 here in Fargo, ND acouple of days ago. I live 6 miles east of there as the crow flies. Provided the ole crow didn't get broiled on its way here. Who wants to eat crow,...I don't. The humidity just makes it seem so much hotter than it is too.

At that temp, I'd be torched
The freezer is a good one to retreat too if you can find a huge one. Where I work, they make frozen goods for Schwans, Happy Joes, and others. Get too hot, RUNNNNNNNNN for the freezer and cool off.
