Ah, Saturday morning early. Open the sunroof, vents cracked to 20 degrees, passenger window down 3 inches, rear windows open. Radio tuned to a rock station. Seat adjusted, seat belt fastened, pump the pedal twice and hold down 1/4 .... contact. The engine fires and stumbles then evens out as it warms up. Blip the throttle a couple times and easy out onto the pavement. Easy running through the gears, up to 3k and shift, second, third, downshift double clutching so as not to grind a gear on a cold transmission, second, first. She's warming up now so we give it a little more fuel...and...with luck, we make it around the block and back into the garage. Ahhh... didn't even need to use the tool box. This time!
