Thanks Patrick!   Burning fuel and adding miles to the odo for stress testing systems.  I was tweaking fuel injection system set points last night taking fuel out at low-rpm.  

Tomorrow Im taking the car to a customer location where a few years back I had a Code Brown moment when a 50+ year old rear brake line failed when I was coming off the freeway.  Angry told me then he couldn't be my friend anymore after that incident.  Ah, good times.

So this week ramps up the Classic car festivities in the metro Detroit area with the Woodward Dream Cruise happening next Saturday.  At this time I'm doing the following events:

Friday 8/19-Waterford Hills parade lap of Vintage Trans Am cars (cars used in Classic Trans Am series-Mustang, Cougar, Camaro, Firebird, Barracuda, Challenger)at noon and then Berkley Cruise Festival Parade at 5:00, who knows where after that?

Saturday-Mustang Alley (I registered and told them it was a Cougar), Royal Oak Veterans Memorial Parks show and Ascend booth (thanks Dave!), Pontiac Phoenix center (Wild West on Woodward) and my financial planners hospitality tent in Birmingham.

Sunday-All Ford Show at Ford World HQ in Dearborn sponsored by Mustang Owners Club of South Eastern Michigan.  This is a big show that I've done before and enjoy.

This week I need to fix the turn signals, clean the interior, tweak the steering shaft a bit more, and clean up trunk and engine bay a bit.  Plenty of other things on the TO DO list but those can wait.

Alright the party on Woodward is in full swing.  Plenty of great cars out and about tonight.  Me and a buddy were checking out cars and putting in more break-in miles on the drivetrain components today. High 80's, sunny and lot of traffic so got some more stress testing on the cooling system.  Held 206F while creeping along in cruise traffic for over 2 miles.  As soon as traffic cleared and speeds went up the temp dropped down to 192F.  Perfect!

Ran in to 84FSP tonight at a parking lot car show on Woodward.  Always good to see a friend!

Mustang Alley said NO to the Cougar.  It was worth a shot, right?

I walked the row of Mustangs and Ford display then did a full 20+ mile loop of Woodward.  Hung out with my Ducati buddies for a bit at Ducati Detroit and cooled off.   Couple of more blasts then some lunch.  Rain in the forecast this evening so may wrap things up early.

i hate how people get snobby about what models of cars are welcome or not. if someone loves their car and works on it themselves i don't think people should disqualify them.

To be fair to them it is a Mustang only show that I tried to jump in on.  I figured I'd get kicked and I did.  No worries here.

Thanks!  Good day again yesterday but it was hot!   Rain rolled in later but I'd already headed for home.  It rained last night and this morning so I bailed on the show I was registered to attend today.  More rain in 3...2...

I saw a white fox Capri with a red sticker package but didn't get a pic.

Red stickers on a Capri could be for one of the Detroit Grand Prix III pace car replicas they offered for sale.  I saw one running around this week.

Dirty cat at M1 Cars & Coffee this morning.  Final event of the season.  32F.  Too cold to wash.

I felt the same way when I fired it up.  Not so bad now that sun is up.  Probably 37 now!

Looking good! Ahh memories of Woodward Ave and associated places nearby.

I have always enjoyed my jaunts up to that part of the country.
