I suspect not! The scenic route through the park was probably not the wisest choice either, for trying it out.

Probably not. .... Try one of the parkways after dark.

To check top speed, it's work for twistys too, send a car out ahead a bit on a cell and report back cars/cops.

Beautiful day on the Ventura Freeway [101 North] in North Hollywood yesterday. I see this beautiful "hot rod" in immaculate condition [32 Ford Choptop]. I must say that Jay Leno looked quite happy driving.

I saw a '33 Ford a couple of months ago. It looked "interesting", and was quite a mongrel, comprising a Mustang front end, a 'Vette rear end, and a Buick small block V8. .... It was also rather, er, stationary, .... at a gas station awaiting assistance to get it going again!

Both models were called "Spitfire", I think.
