Dave57210 Sold a set of mag wheels today. They look like Torq-Thrust, but were some kind of clone (maybe E-T's) with unilug bolt pattern. The guy found a set of the oval "washers" that adapted them to his '55 Ford 2 dr ht, so he was happy.

I won't run "uni-slugs" at all, so they are outta my way now and I got a few $$$$ for them as well.

Now to see if I can also get rid of the set of '33 Ford original wires (complete with original hubcaps) that are cluttering up da joint.....

Sounds like a time saver to me John. Those midnight trips to the fridge would be eliminated. Just reach over and open it up. And just think, breakfast in bed would have a whole new meaning!

I was blessed to have my friend Rodney come around 10:00 o'clock this morning to nelp. At 5:00 we finally had the system evacuated and it has been holding the needle pinned against the 30 lb vacuum for 3 hours. I am optimistic we are on the road to success. I was surprized to find how good it was behind the grill which had to come off to replace tne high pressure line.

Hope to gas it up Thursday but we are tied up tomorrow.

You could always dig up your floor a couple of feet?? Lol

Check the voltage at the starter solanoid and have 12.43 volts. The kicker is, the battery is under the floorboard, Has insulation and carpet over it and the sill plate holding the carpet down. Three hours later I am back from the auto parts store with a new battery but don't have time to trim the mounting tangs of the case to make it fit.....

You guessed it. Drove the truck to the Sonic.

I did take this picture of this really cool nailhead Buick motor for the Martin Brothers.

You can never have too many Nailheads to look at.

MARTINSR Last night I got with Nick laying out under the Alpine and pulled the drive shaft out. It's such a cute little drive shaft.

Once you get well enough to spend a few hours in the car, grab the wife and take the scenic route to Chattanooga. Barb and I will buy you guys lunch. At least that will get you out and about for little while.
