Margherita Is On The Road, Again

Margherita has got a new heart!  Erik Rathmann completed the semi-overhaul of the engine and it's running very smoothly, although I haven't had a real chance to run it very hard or for very long.  I'm hoping to make a speed run up to Cars and Coffee in Irvine this Saturday morning.  Need to put some miles on the engine for break-in.
Hope to see some friends on the road!!!!  Ciao!
