...or in my case the salty beach air. 

One of my hobbies is modifying and restoring cars, Corvettes in particular, and I just finished an interior upgrade project on a 2004 that included installing a new NAV touch screen.  What better way to test out the new system than with my Asia playlist listening to John's inspiring music while driving down Gulf Drive through Longboat Key?! 

I know the majority of the northern hemisphere is still battling through the tail end of our winter, however it was a picture perfect day on the west coast of Florida!  Carpe Diem!

Sorry if I'm rubbing it in but the weather is relatively perfect with no humidity and beautiful blue skies...

I just have to look out of my window at the driving rain, and think that this time next week, I will be in Florida, too. That is one of the major advantages of my job.

The weather should be perfect for your visit John!  I hope your cruise events are successful.  Carnival had another bad week with two ships limping back to the docks with problems.

Yeahhhh, but look at that pic of the /ASIA\ water dragon on the NAV of your (gorgeous!) Vette, Allen... that creature is rising ABOVE. FORWARD MOTION. Not even the gates of hell (or a pearl of wisdom) could prevail in "draggin' the dragon" down.

Change the forecast of those gray & gloomy Roger Dean clouds to AZURE & BRIGHT - and that should be the Maker's handiwork for John's inaugural Cruise To The Edge, pulling out o'the Port of Miami next week!

Nice ride you got there, ALLEN.

Do you take it over to any of your great racetracks over there? I can picture that car of yours being ooo'ed & aah'ed at the 'Vette Corral at Sebring.

Thanks.  This current 2004 has not seen any track time.  Most tracks I've been to won't let converibles on without a rollbar, however I've tracked some of the other cars I've worked on.  Sebring is fun, however I didn't get a chance to go this year.

I was at a show in Tampa last fall and there was a guy who had his 1973 Corvette hood liner airbrushed to match the cover of Dark Side of the Moon.

I immediately, thought about how cool the Asia dragon would look on a hoodliner.  Hmmmm......

Asia Dragon would be cool, Allen.
I would stay away from "Dark Side."
I named my boat "Comfortably Numb" and had it painted on the rear of the boat. The Marine Police were always pulling me over, not one of my better ideas.

A friend of mine had a Roger Dean pic on the bonnet of a Mk 1 Ford Escort. Ok, it's not a Corvette, but it's a classic car (especially when rallied - viz RS Mexico).
