Nice blue skies and sun here. Spent 500 miles in the Bonneville getting more Chevron Toy Cars for the collection.

We are at 69 degrees here for the first time since early spring. I noticed that my tranny didn't drop out of overdrive all morning. So that kind of confirms the idea that its suffering from the dreaded valve body issue and is aggravated by heat build up. It started back in the spring and since we generally have had 85 + degree days I usually go straight to cruise control to keep it from dropping OD. Seems I can ignore that issue until next spring anyway. I can move on to other stuff without having to worry about heat stroke. Maybe I can finally get around to that vent actuator problem.

80'* here for a change, 2 days in a row. Wettest and coolest summer here I can remember. Kinda sucks when you go 6 months out of the year with snow waiting to get your "summer toy'*" out.

Hmmm, the vent actuator problem seems to have disappeared also. This could get interesting.
