    Default Katie's, 03/04/17

    I did a quick visit to Katie's this morning. I had to an event in Pennsylvania, so I was only around for a bit over 2 hours. It was still time well spent.

    Katie's had a smaller turnout this morning - it was cold today, and lots of regulars are at Amelia Island for the concours. One nice side-effect was, we had several groupings of cars by marques; not something that can usually happen when we are crowded.

    I didn't go to Katie's last week, because it was sleeting when I woke up last Saturday. What a difference a week makes! It was 55 degrees when I drove to Katie's this morning. Predictably, the warm weather brought EVERYBODY out! Some great cars there today - I won't bore you with pics of my Caterham..

    Default Katie's, 04/01/17

    My wife and I just bought a new 'adult car', to replace our Acura. We got a Subaru Legacy. I figured it was a car best used on April Fools' Day at Katie's, since it's not what I'd usually bring. The local Corvair club came out this morning. (My first-ever car purchase was a '65 Corvair Corsa Turbo.)

    Bob: Your Caterham is looking pretty sharp! Did you spend the winter polishing and shining?
    I haven't seen a bare alu body that shiny since BBall showed his at NJMP at the annual se7ens event. He'd give you a run for your $, but it looks like a tie to me. Keep up the good work, I always love the photos.

    Thanks- I can't take credit for the shine - much of that is how well the car was cared for by the previous owners. It was in pretty good nick when I got it in August of 2015, but I had my detailing guy do a really quick, basic polish, as soon as I received the car. All I have done since is to use Adam's spray-on waterless car wash. Since the Seven is so tiny (even compared to my Elise), it's the easiest vehicle I've ever owned to keep clean!

    Default Katie's, 04/08/17

    This past week was filled with strange weather; nice & temperate early in the week, with violent thunderstorms Thursday, and high winds (including some tornadoes in the area) on Friday. Saturday was cold, clear & GREAT!

    A beautiful morning - in the mid-fifties before 6:00AM. As you'd expect, a very big turnout at Katie's this Easter weekend. Here are some interesting vehicles we had not seen before.

    The roads were wet, and it was gently sprinkling when I arrived at Katie's at 5:30AM. While that generally means low turnout, and much fewer exotics, there are still interesting vehicles & people there.

    A reminder - we have a couple of big events coming up... Britain on the Green is just over a week away, and Get Your Lotus Out is two weeks away! Check the links below for details:
