First drive of the season... It must be Spring

We've had a little taste of Spring here in NJ for past few days so I decided to clean out the garage a bit and switch it over from Winter mode to Summer mode. So out to the shed went the snow blowers, shovels and other winter stuff surrounding the Camaro. Once I removed all of the obstacles I fired it up and backed it out to clean up a little. About 4 neighbors showed up before I got the car out of the garage asking if I was taking it out for a ride and wondering about available vacancies for the passenger seat. Their ages range from 4 yrs old to 40. I told them I had some cleaning to do, but maybe later. I also fired up the bike and moved it to an accessible location. After an hour or so of clean up it was time to pull the car back in the garage. I accidently backed down the driveway and went on a cruise for just a mile or two with one of the neighbors. You know, just to get the fluids circulated and maybe make a little boost.. LOL. I can't wait for the nice weather to be here. It was great to have it out on the road again. The last time I had it out was in November.

Backed it out of the garage onto the driveway and back into the middle of the garage so I could get access to the passenger side. Just a few more camaro mini-projects... give it a few weeks and I'll be out. And I live in CANADA! The rest of you guys have no excuse.

It was warm enough here in Md. but still to much salt on the roads so no drive for me...

Re: First drive of the season... It must be Spring

I drove my car around the block last weekend for the first time in 3 years.
Slid in the driveshaft, topped off the trans with fluid, and took her for a spin

Now I need to do the maiden voyage burnout! Can't wait to get this thing completed.
