Thanksgiving Classic Car drive to Squamish

Thought I would post this up, not sure if I will go, weather looks to be good and this is likely the last opportunity
to drive for the season for me.

James might go...anybody else interested from our group? Not a stupidly early day either and can be
back before the afternoon rush of long weekend traffic flushing out of Whistler and ferries.

I might be able to make it. That could be fun.

Just a heads up for any coming along, DRESS WARMLY, it will be very cool at the college and not much better
at the gondola.

Glen and I will be going as well - see you there.
My car is still packed from when I returned from the August car show - cooler, chairs and all the organizational stuff - been a crazy last couple of months. The job today is to shovel out the car, wash it and get ready for tomorrow am.

Mine is still dirty from The last drive. We are not allowed to wash our cars up here.

I saw your water restrictions.

I took mine over to Specialty a week ago, that last trip was the worst for bugs and debris. I spent a half hour very carefully, with Andy's high pressure air, and back blew all the radiators out, my fans, the oil cooler, etc.. I was amazed at how much crud was in with the fan shrouds and housings. I took the time to blow all the dust and gravel bits out of almost every nook and cranny, at least it is done for another season.

I'm going to throw a hotter set of plugs in tomorrow morning, as this will NOT be a 180 KMH drive.

Sent you a PM, but departure around 7am from my place.

Be great to have you along, look forward to seeing the Nova as we've not yet met.
