Dark skies threatened around midday, but the weather stayed clear, other than a few very light and brief sprinkles.

If you think this twin-supercharged rod looks interesting, wait until you see the owner... who I will post a pic of in Part 2 tomorrow.

In the meantime, you can check out more pics on our Facebook page here.
