Yesterday I got to be "knight rider." Well, actually, I got to go for a ride in a 1925 Willys-Knight. The Upper Mississippi Valley chapter of the Willys Overland Knight Registry (WOKR) had a three-day meet in our area and I caught up with the hobbyists at their host hotel.

What really amazed me was the GPS in the car. I wondered how the owner got it to operate in a 1925 car. He said he ran it off an RV battery he bought for $10. The GPS did a good job of showing him each road he came to and gave him an accurate read out on how fast he was going.

It was really pretty cool.
