Didn't see the trucks this time, but I was in motion a lot, exploring the lakebed and surrounding towns. Met a couple oldtimers, one a 200 Club member. Lots of stories. I did see the little roadster pack that I think this car was part of, though I don't remember this car. There was a different "Hop UP" roadster there that I did see... all paintless rusty metal patina. These were pretty machines, in that mad max kinda way. Snapped a pick of a few of them doing donuts in the dust, kinda like a roadster tango.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
