Haha yeah I’m on the threshold of time wise if I tear into the motor I won’t have it done in time to be able to enjoy the whole summer ..

On average we can get 6month if solid driving in before snow hits but lately we’ve been having weird weather changes where our winters seem to be getting shorter .

I am amazed that some are putting the miles on these cars. Glad to see it.

Another old guy here.. when I retire I'm moving to AZ and then I can drive it year round anytime I want. The roads there are great and there is a scenic highway between Flagstaff and Sedona the locals call "the switchbacks" that is one of my favorite driving roads besides Pacific Coast Highway in CA which is well within long cruise driving distance from AZ. I'm going to visit AZ next month and rent a 6th Gen SS again.

I've ridden many a mile on two wheels there. Slide Rock is a great place to take a break. You should do Oatman Road between Kingman and Golden Valley. One of the few remaining sections of the original Route 66. 13 miles of very tight turns then about 30 more miles of opportunity to open her up with sweepers. Very lightly traveled during the week, few residences and no cops. It more primitive with less room for error though. Quite thrilling if you like the risk factor. The sixth turn after the copper mine is always slippery for a few days after a rain storm.
