Pretty spot PH.

I decided that with a cold spell pending to blow out the water lines. Its supposed to be in the mid to high 20s for several hours in early AM, so shut water off to the shop and drained all I can... also drained all the yard bibs and took care of the trailer.

Say, do any of you name your trailer? I was thinking of naming "her" MODesty Blase'. What cha think? MOD... all the mods. Etsy (the place to buy all things homemade).

Or, Hotel Can'tAffordYa? ... loosely sounds like "Hotel California".

Off the subject, but drove the Mustang with windows and glass... and seats... first drive, since 99.9% complete. I drove it with no fenders or glass several years ago. I've owned it for almost 14 years and been working it, off and on all that time.

So, the ride was rough.... I checked tires when I got back and had 39 psi in both fronts; 29 rears... supposed to be 24 all around.

I was sweating the tranny, as it didn't shift into 3rd since I've owned it and even after rebuilding it. Its a C4 dual range or green dot version. I had fixed the source of a leak, and what do you know... it shifts. Just needs driven. Tomorrow get insurance and an antique tag. I'll get some pics tomorrow, as well. I had some on the smartphone, but for whatever reason it always makes the car look blue and its a medium turquoise; not the factory color, darker and with tons of pearl. Also, tomorrow... clean the shop, its a disaster. I sure can make a mess.

WW,
Love the names you suggested... Still have not named my camper yet but that will happen this year on our way out to Yellowstone with the family.

Looking forward to seeing the pick of your mustang. Someday, I will have the spare time you do to get all the "projects" done.

Allen and Steve, a friend had a 429 Mach 1 (1971) like the attachment with Ram Air, that I tried to buy, but missed out when he moved back north. When nitrous first was being used he had a 100 shot on it, really fast, or certainly could smoke the tires.



But, my largest almost owned it screw up was not buying a 1968 Charger Hemi. My late father-in-law was a Dodge dealer and got it for his son to drive in his senior HS year. Sticker was $5200. Had a 4 speed, power steering, power brakes and a radio... no AC. Beautiful Blue with black vinyl top, black interior. When his dad took it back to sell it (and it was perfect) he couldn't sell it.... kept dropping the price. At $2700 I took it for a drive. I couldn't see how 8 miles to the gallon would work for me, so I bought a Rambler wagon from him. A few weeks later it was stolen and found stripped in the woods nearby. If I had bought it and kept it original there was a time when it might have sold for nearly a million $$$. Certainly over $500K.

It looked something like this... of course the air cleaner was entirely different and valve covers should be wrinkle black:



Camera charged and pictures coming soon (of my little girl). I traded her for a 86 Monte Carlo SS, that I just bought, to my son who needed something to drive. I wish I had bought him a car and kept the Monte. It was the dark cherry and nearly perfect inside and only needed paint... no rust. Oh, well. Every time I see one, I want to kick myself. But, the Mustang is going to be fun, too.
WW

PH,
We are going out the end of June thru early July. We will be staying on the west side of Yellowstone and then going over to the Grand Tetons before heading back home. Bringing the kids (21 & 17 yrs old...) for possibly one last "big" camping trip. The kids come from time to time with Mom & Dad on our long weekend trips but not always. They prefer to go on the airplane trips now... I'm still working on a plan to bring the bike with so my wife and I can tour Yellowstone on the bike and the "kids" can drive the truck. Don't think this will fly with momma but a guy has to try...

Since we are doing old car week, here was my youthful fun. Spent every last dollar on it rebuilding everything twice. Still think about doing it again...

Nice car Rodney!
I know what your saying Allen. 155mph in that Charger on US 41 with an undisclosed cm in verb of girls in the car.
Get a smart car to take Steve... no wait the kids still wouldn't fit... You won't have them much longer so make memories; there will be time for cruising later. I recommend Terra Verde NP if you can get by there... Rockie Mountain NP as well. The museum at Cody is a must. I want to get out there and northern CA and Oregon... and Washington. Might plan an Alaskan cruise if timing works out.
Clint

I can't wait to get out to the great western NP's. Our daughter is just a little too young at this point for such a hike. We're pushing it going to WI this coming summer and Myrtle Beach as well.
