Well, I just relinquished the keys to the ForkenSwift. I've had it all to myself for the past 5 weeks because Ivan's girlfriend was getting a little testy about the fleet of vehicles accumulating at their place

But I'm going away for a month on a sailing trip, tomorrow. So I dropped it off last night.

I haven't updated this thread for a long time. The car works great! No problems. Kind of boring in that regard, but I still love driving it. If I have to drive, I'll always pick the ForkenSwift if it can do the job.

Of course it's still not finished. I have more refining I'd like to do to it. Just a matter of making time.
