Good morning guys. Haha yeah, spring is closing in but the weather is still crazy. The past three days has been mid-50s to 60 degrees. This morning we're mid-30s and it's raining pretty good, temps are dropping and it's suppose to change over to snow soon - we're looking at 3-5" of snow today, could be up to 7" in spots.

Big Ten Tournament is underway (NCAA men's basketball). #5 Michigan plays #12 Iowa today at 2:30 pm. Go Blue!

Hello all! Rain is ending here, the next for days are clear and cool. Low's in the 30's, hghs 50 - 60. I can dig that.

I am ready to detail the SS just in time for the pollen outbreak. But it's all good.

Good morning guys, we got about 5" of snow yesterday. A few areas in Metro Detroit saw up to 8". Very wet, heavy snow sticking to everything. A lot of schools closed this morning, roads are pretty clear since temps are right at freezing so the commute was pretty decent this morning. The next 3 days, including today, is suppose to be in the low 40s so I expect a lot of this snow we just got to be gone by the end of the weekend.

Big storms went by us and hit the rest of the country We have been getting some nice day's and kindly sending them to Michigan . Been putzing in the garage the last few day's chasing wire's again most of the dash out and steering colom pulled , didn't find anything as usual . Re assembly today then I'll look at mess under the hood for a laugh. will have to decide what I actually need. And kudo's to Driver#3 for putting up another great contest. I have nothing for this one again but enjoy seeing the other rides.

Hey everyone....weather is awesome here in Denver - 60's for the next couple days! My new hubs and new tires (Goodyear Eagle Sport AS) are on, no more wheel shimmy at high speed. The new struts are just freaking awesome (Monroe's). Steering rack and lower control arms/ball joints go in on the 16th...going to definitely ride like new. Still chasing keyless entry issue, ordered a new receiver...

So, if you have a 60 mph tail wind, and you are driving at 60 mph, is that like perfect fuel mileage?
