Black Betty looks fantastic! I'm sure you're happy to have her back on the road.

Beautiful! I occasionally (once per year) make it over to Lewiston and would love to see it in person. Congrats!

That road is fantastic, one of the best in the world! The rhythm of it is a delight and it's not all that dangerous because there is very good visibility around the corners mostly. The views of the river running beside the road is absolutely sensuous. Don't they call that the Lewis and Clark Highway?

I think it is the Lewis Clark Trail Highway. A fun road to drive. Last time I came over the pass, two 911 GT3 passed me so fast didn't even see there lic plates. zoom zoom an they were gone. The law only goes that way, only when there trouble. If one comes through Lewiston Give me a call on the TAN list

Looks great. I saw it while the work was being done. Kerstan @ Rillos Restoration did a really nice job.

Gents, try Hwy 12 from Kooskia to Lolo along the Lochsa River. One of the best 356 roads in the USA. Check it out on maps and you will find fast and long sweepers and beautiful scenery. A must drive!
