So FINALLY!!! the '85 is back in the garage, the '86 is sitting where the '85 was (under the same cover, even) and I have sent pictures to the prospective buyer and to three other people who have since expressed an interest in the thing. That was a pretty busy day.
And it's m-f-ing HOT outside.
I'm not kidding; after May and June having highs averaging maybe 75°, today's weather felt like the freaking Philippines.
The temperature? 86°. But I don't know if I can trust that weather station, considering that it reports the dewpoint as being -99.9° and the barometric pressure as 0.00 inches. But the Crete one isn't any better even if its inaccuracy is mainly in the temperature domain--that's the one that consistently reports the daytime high as 10-15 degrees hotter than it actually is whenever the sun is shining on it--so I must take all this data with a grain of salt.
But I don't need a thermometer to tell me it's f-ing HOT!
So anyway, all I need to do now is for the guy who said he wants the car actually to come and pick the thing up and lay a franklin on me, and I've already told him I'll help him load the thing onto the trailer. Then we'll have one less car in the driveway, and everyone will be a lot happier.
