Dulles Landing & Fairfax Circle, 07/24/16

It was pretty hot today, so attendance was down a bit, in both locations.

Fairfax Circle, 08/21/16

The original weather forecast for today was rain, but it did hold off until about 9:45AM. Naturally, attendance at the C & C was light.
I made a quick stop at the grocery store, and got caught in a pretty good shower on the way home. Luckily, I had the tonneau over the passenger side. I followed a Saab up the main road towards our house, with my tiny windshield wipers going at 'ludicrous' speed. I was lucky to get home without incident, and no real soaking of the cloth seats!

That white Buick was very nicely presented; what a shock when he opened the hood to show the Corvette LS3 engine!

We made a quick trip over to Fairfax Circle, to see Dino's new car - a 512BB.
On a chilly day, with some gusty winds, there was still a nice turnout there.

I'd agree. I have driven pretty much all the 2-wheel-drive F-Types (convertible & coupe). As a dyed-in-the-wool Lotus fan, I was convinced that the higher-output V6 would be the best. For balance, I'm still convinced it's superior... but, once I drove the V8 at wide open throttle... whoa! I am about the last person to want a noisy ride, but that V8 sound is intoxicating! I still wish Tata would buy Lotus. They have done wonders for both Jaguar and Land Rover.
