Yep, I'll be in the right hand lane. Unless of course I have to pass somebody!

I was totally kidding!! Yep, anything 4.10's and lower would definitely qualify for "right lane gears"!! I only take the freeway very early in the morning and even then it's kinda dangerous, what with guys coming up on you doing 70-80 mph. I'm doing 54 mph at about 3400 rpm!! Can't even remember having to pass anyone going slower!!

Joe is a safe driver! And as a bonus, we cruised by where OCIR used to be

Okay all, it’s time for a little “DRIVER’S MEETING”!! First of all, I’ll be printing up copies of the directions for the route we will be taking on Saturday. I will have them at the Donut Shop bright and early!! I should be there around 5:30 or so. RK had a suggestion that maybe we could all park in front of the Goodwill Store. That all depends on what time you get there. I was there today and the place was packed!! It really doesn’t matter where you park, but just remember, we will be leaving at 8:00 SHARP!! Just watch for Nova’s starting to move at that time and we’ll head out onto Adams Ave. and hold up until everyone is together.
The hardest part of a cruise like this is to KEEP everyone together. Whenever you have the opportunity to go “2-wide” or even “3-wide” (without blocking traffic too bad!) please do it. That goes for left-turn lanes too. Your fellow “cruisers” will be more than happy to let you merge back in whenever you have to. Please try to obey all speed limits and let’s keep it safe.
The weather seems to be cooperating lately. I’m encouraged that we might have a fine day for our cruise. If you have any concerns or questions please ask and I’ll try to answer them as best I can. See you all on Saturday………………………

Well, I may or may not make it. I was going over the car today and I noticed that the battery had leaked and acid decided to eat paint off the tray and generally make a small mess. The big question is why it leaked? The only thing I did was change the voltage regulator a few months ago because the system wasn't charging and I was left at a show waiting for help. I'm thinking now the system is over charging for some reason and cooking the battery. I checked the voltage hitting the battery while running and it was 14.2 (when I put the new one in) and my amp gauge was on the plus side, so I thought ok, good. It was only getting 11-12v to the battery before. The regulator I put in is a solid state regulator that I bought to use in the meantime until I find one that's dated correctly. Maybe the new unit isn't switching off when it should be. So, I'm probably not going anywhere until I figure this out. Ugh...
