Yeah, we're heading out in about 20 mins. Cloudy and dry here. I would not miss this show because of some drizzle! First chance to test my new top! See you there!

7:25am and still drizzel in Chatsworth.
weather.com shows clearing around 8, then clear all day.
I'm packing shoes and socks.
I think my wipers work OK . . . I tested them last week when I changed the wipers, or was that my other Alfa . . . .

Had good intentions today. Car waxed and packed - wife even dressed and ready to go by 8am. Rain was pretty heavy by the time we got to Seal Beach - and then the wipers decided to die. Pulled off the highway, got 'em working again, but the rain was heavy enough that we turned around and went home.

Disappointed. So how was the turnout?

It was a pretty decent turn out. I think Paul said 50 Alfas or so? Probably more. There were four good rows. I stayed the night in L.A. and the rain up there stopped by 9:30am and it didn't even drizzle the rest of the time in the park. Jay Leno was there too. It was very muddy though. I actually like the look of my GTV6 covered in mud. :P

Thanks to everyone who braved the elements and the MUD. It was a great crowd and a fun day after all!

Update from Venice, Italy ... err, I mean Venice, CA

We were ready to go by 8:AM, but it was a downpour here, so we waited. Around noon we decided to chance it. It had stopped raining, but the threat of more rain was very real. Dad (Art Russell) had come down with something and was sick as a Chevy, so he stayed home.

As we drove over the hill to Woodley Park in the new Fiat, the speedo turned 700 miles. The weather cleared and was warm enough for about an hour that I took off my sweater. Was a good turn out of cars and people in spite of the rain and mud.

Allie and I had fun and are glad we went.
