I drove the car back home this afternoon, a 90 mile drive. Not a lot of tools where I had it nor time to use them, otherwise I would have tuned it a bit before I left. It is running very rich, as the blue smoke under hard acceleration has ceased and is now black. I got considerably better fuel mileage on the return trip, using about 1/4 tank of gas.

Lots of traffic in Boone and Wilkesboro, and the cooling fan worked flawlessly.

Has not used any oil since that one time.

Some pictures from my drive up to the Blue Ridge Parkway last Friday. I thought the signs were appropriate.

Here's my car back in my garage with the trophy. Selection was based on "People's Choice", which is what the crowd (according to the judges) liked the best. I got there a bit late and was in a far corner, yet people were looking at it, asking questions nearly non-stop. Lots of folks took pictures and one guy took like a 5 minute movie. LOL

The orange Camaro won first place. It's a $300,000 custom that made the rounds of national car shows. The blue Camaro is almost as over-the-top, won a bucket of car care products.

Maybe if I had washed the brake dust off my front wheels I could have got first.

2nd place ain't too shabby, Steve. Congratulations, and I hope you get many more this season. - Dave
