The little Europa waits patiently for spring...

The Twin Cam plays the symphony whilst my right foot conducts the orchestra. At 3800 rpm the Mad Pipe Organ joins in.

 :coolpic:   -   Literally !   

ohhh, that looks cold.  At least our snow is slowly melting here, you look as if you're smack bang in the middle of winter.   Still, shifting all that lot will keep you nice and warm !

Yeah, moving the snow in the winter keeps me slim & trim to fit in the Europa in the summer.

Ah yes. Days in the 70s... I remember those.

I must say though, it is quite tempting to fit some skinny, chunky snow tires and hit the snowy streets. With rear drive and mid engine, that thing would drift beautifully  :pirate: Oh, but much too much salt around. The brine would have that Europa chassis for lunch.

Well,
here in north central NC, it's winter as usual
last weekend seems it was almost 70F. this morning it's 14F. with a sheet of ice covering everything.
I have to work in the cold. When I'm off, I'd rather have warm weather.

In this particular photo you have shared with us I noticed the semi vertical lines in conjunction with the height and placement of the tailing's as can be observed on the left.  Then I compared that with the width and semi horizontal lines of uneven spacing and of differing angles as shown in the foreground of the photo.   From this I have decided that someone used a shovel to clear the driveway by manual means rather than by the employment of a piece of machinery such as a snow plow or snow blower.

I can not be certain of this because I keep getting distracted by that lovely Europa of yours that is peeking out of the garage in quiet desperation, looking for signs of Spring.

Very observent Ron. Despite the fact that there is a perfectly serviceable snow blower in the garage, I moved the snow by hand. I do this whenever time ( and snow quantity) permits. There is a certain zen aspect to a couple hours of shovelling snow on a crisp quiet evening. Not quite as satisfying as a blast down vacant country roads in a well behaved Europa, but pleasant nontheless.
