City yesterday evening. He lives on Tujunga just off Ventura Blvd. Well
I had a nice time with the lad
His street is downhill and there is a drainage canal at the bottom of the street you see and my car was in a river. I had to try and jump acrosss the mini-Rubicon and land more or less in the middle getting my feet wet to mid-calf, then run to the car. I got to the car yanked the door open and put it in nuetral and let the downhill and the water push me away from the curb.
With some (no make that lots) of trepidation
I turned the key over and Voila! Der Maus fired on the first spark! Lots

Then on the way home I fought aqua planning
with my TA KD's but other than the occaisional skate across the odd pond.
Not a single hitch.
Folks, these are rugged little cars.
