[T3] Road Test

It's almost the end of summer and I was getting bummed about being too 
busy to get any of my stored Squares out, but an "emergency" with a 
problem electric garage door opener forced me to get the orange '71 out of 
the garage so I could work on the opener, overhead. That was yesterday, all 

Today the garage door opener seems to be working again, but with the 
Square already out, we took it for a somewhat distant lunch, just to warm up 
the oil and get fresh gas in it. I filled it up before and after, and put 85 miles 
on it in between. That worked out to 27.2 mi/gal, which seems perfect for 
55-60 mi/hr with occasional slowdowns for Wisconsin small towns.

We're having some very light rain right now, but it should clear up soon, so I 
won't have to put it away wet.

Nice to know that it's still running well.   ;-)
