    Default Katie's, 01/20/18

    I planned to drive the Elise to Katie's this morning... the Elise planned differently. I had a problem starting the car, several weeks ago, and discovered that I needed to use my CTEK charger on a different setting (the cold weather setting), since it is an 'AGM' type battery. It seems that the battery was at the end of its life, since that strategy worked, but only for a few more weeks. Now, I need to buy a new one. Oh, well.

    A decent crowd at Katie's, even including a Ferrari and a Lamborghini. Oh, and my Subaru. Well, it turns out the Seven WILL start, so I'll drive that to Fairfax Circle tomorrow!

    Thanks for posting these. I read your posts and drool over the photos every week but have never thanked you and let you know.

    I drove my Elise to Katie's today, to make sure my new battery is working, and that there are no issues with the charging system. All is OK!

    A lot of nice cars today; a big turnout, after several weeks of salt and cold and a little precipitation. Everybody was ready to get out of the house. (I was disappointed to have the only Lotus there, though...)

    'SpeedyCop' brought what looks like an old Dodge, but is a diesel Mercedes underneath; this is a LeMons car.

    Well, we've made it to February, though Punxutawney Phil says we have 6 more weeks of winter. It was 15F when I got to Katie's this morning, but at least there was no wind. A reasonable amount of cars showed up. No Lotus there, save mine.

    A late-ish arrival to Katie's this morning. A year from now, this might not make sense to most people. (It took me a couple of seconds for this to register with me...)

    Dammit! I got up early, and checked outside. It was 29F, no breeze, and dry. I really wanted to drive the Seven, but I jumped in the Elise, and drove towards Katie's, as I normally do every Saturday morning. 3 blocks from my house, I see that Fairfax County has, again, sprayed massive amounts of brine solution on the roads.... Grrr..... I was already out, so I continued on to meet friends for breakfast. Turnout was decent, and, at least it wasn't ridiculously cold! I had the only Lotus there, but saw some 'Lotus friends' - including Michael D, who sold his Seven last year.

    Not a huge turnout, because it was foggy out - but, it was mid-forties this morning, even really early! A friend just bought a Ferrari 599, and brought it out for the first time... A huge number of Porsches there, as there always seems to be when there's iffy weather... Ed drove his X 1/9.
