Can you imagine your Grandma driving topless for 1,500 miles across America? That is just what I am going to do this June. Yup, our ’31 Buick Racer has no top – none – zip – zero. To the best of my knowledge I will be the first woman ever to drive a topless Racer in the Great Race. And folks ask, “What happens when it rains?” The answer of course is, “Get wet!” We have new rain gear, goggles and with any luck we won’t have to use any of it!
We finally had what we thought was going to be 36 hours of no rain last week. It turned out to be 18 hours, but enough time to get the Buick out of the house and a quick run down our road. Other than a brake pedal that I couldn’t reach, turning radius of a city block and some timing issues it ran great! She’s back in the house for more work. Later this week we are taking it back out on the road rain or shine – rain and 50’s is predicted – for a longer trip.
