Saturday was the 24th British Car Day at Ursuline College, and as the weather co-operated, we decided to enter.  Torqued the wheels, loaded the car, checked the fluids, and after topping up the fuel, off we were.  The trip across town (Interstates) of about 65 km went well at 4000 RPM – 100-105 kph.  The temps stayed stable at about 72 oil and 82 water.  We registered, and set up.

Showtime!

I always open the bonnet, as that is our best feature.
