Drove to work and back home.

I drove to the hanger at JFK with the space shuttle. I have a lot of CLOSE UP vids of the Enterprise. I'll make a thread later.

Took out the C Pillar trim to re-glue the hanging fabric. Also detailed the interior and I'm installing my new air filter later. Heading to BMW dealer Wednesday to pick up the O-Ring for my DISA valve so I can get my vacuum leak and SES light taken care of.

Haven't driven her in 2 days almost... Mourning the loss of my grandfather and completing final exams.

Denver to Grand Junction and back,... a little over 4 hours one way. The twisting mountain roads were amazing on the way there this morning,........ but the afternoon thunderstorms (with some hail) really sucked on the way back

Nice drive.
I lived in Summit County, and was born in Glenwood Springs/ New Castle, you went through both..
Lucky...I miss home.

Denver to Royal Gorge, then to Salida, then to Gardner (had to take the detour because of an accident on highway 50) and back to Denver. Got beaten by the same hail storm. Got pulled over for speeding but just got a warning
500+ miles and not tired at all. I love my car.

Took her it off road in the forest in Gardner area.

Here are some pics.

Washed it and showed it off at a local meet.

Attempted to save it from hail damage by occupying a Bank ATM awning.
People were piling behind me either trying to get under with me or use the ATM not sure lol
