Took the Spongemobile, as it has now been named,
on it's first real tour / test drive.
Up the mountains between Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
Performed faultlessly, didn't miss a beat:
..oil-pressure way up
..voltage/charging way up
..radiator temperature way down ( 1/4 to somewhat under 1/2 up the scale)
..fuel-meter.....erh.....declining....fastlike...who cares; small price
for an exiting life
I just seriously love this silly thing to bits!
( but for me flipping great memorable first trip in my dream-drive)
I'm seriously hooked.
