    Some of my favorite cars (and people) were there today! On the second picture, you can't tell, but the black fender barely visible is a Lamborghini Urus coming in - passing its grandfather, the Espada.

    What started out as an overcast Saturday morning turned into a pretty nice day at Katie's. My friend Gavin and his daughter Scarlett drove out in their Seven.

    A good day at Katie's. Tomorrow, (05/19/19, starting at 10:00AM), we will hold GYLO 17 on a back lot at Katie's, and it will be another good day! (We had 3 Lotus there today; we hope to do MUCH better for the Get Your Lotus Out event tomorrow!)

    I will have a special prize for the Seven in attendance, that gets the most votes as 'favorite'. (My Seven will not count in this voting!)

    Two Sevens there today - my Caterham, and Chuck S's Westfield.
    An interesting overhead shot of a Corvette ZR-1.
    Would you trade your occasional Seven problems for troubleshooting a Stanley Steamer?

    Maybe not. Interesting photo of the plumbing. Let it cool? Know which valve to shut to avoid a lobster effect? I don't even see the odd towel around. I wonder if California counts that as a near zero pollution vehicle?

    Default Katie's, 06/08/19

    A beautiful sunrise at Katie's, this morning.

    At Katie's today, a guy we know - ZR-1 driver Phil, collapsed inside Katie's. The Great Falls Emergency Squad (luckily, right across the street) came right over. Seems like a heart incident. He was conscious and coherent when he left - a good sign - and they took him to a local hospital. Two good things accompanied this frightening event -

    1.) Fellow Corvette guys talked to Phil before he left, and volunteered to get his car home and safe. I know that took one of his worries away.

    2.) I was VERY happy to see that no one was parked along the sides of the entrance road to Katie's from Georgetown Pike. People had been parking their cars on both sides of this road in recent weeks, and it makes it difficult to get traffic in & out. Thankfully, the ambulance and fire truck had a clear shot in to pick up Phil, and get him to the hospital.

    Katie's update: Phil, who was taken away from Katie's in an ambulance on Saturday, is home and OK. He did yard work all day Friday, without drinking enough water. His problem was being dehydrated, and he's taking care of that. He said he'd be back at Katie's soon.

    This is a much more common problem that people think. If you're in the heat and not peeing every hour to two, you are not drinking enough water. There is an easily found chart (military) that shows urine color. Cloudy thinking is an early symptom, so not advisable to drive a 7. For autocross, I tow (in Texas) once we are over 95 degrees. I normally drive out. But, standing in 100 degree heat all day COULD make the drive home dangerous. So, I tow in AC comfort in the afternoon. Take into account the wind. A 7 in freeway traffic demands 100% concentration, not a bit woosy.

    Glad the Vette driver is OK.
