Default Sounds of Spring

Got to give all the neighbors their spring wake-up call Sunday when I fired the Formula's motors for the first time after their long winter hybernation. Looks like everything came back to life fine except for one of the bilge pumps (only runs "some of the time"). The insurance layover ends 1 April or I would have gone out for a short hop. It won't be long now!

Yep... the sweet sound of Spring Thunder! I fired the ole Excalibur up a couple weeks ago myself. I've got it parked between the houses... knocked plaster off my garage ceiling... don't know what it did to the neighbors bedroom

Thumbs up

Spring is here!!!!!!!! I fired both of my engines up yesterday. Ran them one at a time for about 1/2 hour each. Right after I put the hose away, I had four cops drive thru the neighborhood within an hour.
