I've already cut the lawn twice - will do it again if/when it stops raining!

I put my ol' hot tub in Craigslist as a "come get this thing outta my way" freebie. I really enjoyed it in winter - when there is snow and you sit in the hot tub, snow falling, sip some white wine - heaven!

Hasn't snowed around here enough to be bothered in many years.

Even the Olympics a couple of years back, we had to get snow trucked in from a couple hundred miles away!


You Guys are Killing ME LOL

John I'm totally ashamed of myself! I should never have made light of Jester's shivering existence in the North Pole or wherever the ice flow has left him. I should have commended him for his---Oh look! The Blue Bird of Happiness just flew in with hundred dollar bills in it's beak just to make it a little nicer here in warm Northern Calif---fortitude and resilience to struggle through Spring in Michigan. I feel truly chastised.

I just came across glove box and what not the other day, been boxed up for years! I remember having a perfect glovebox door I got out of a big truck at the wrecking yard. I send it out for plating and it came back stainless and dented. I told the guy this isn't mine and he said there were no others in the system that had to be mine. Yeah some jerk who works for you has my glove box door in his truck! Never did get it back. Grrrrrr

Still plugging away on the '65 Mustang. This week I installed the e-brake system and dropped the engine/trans in. Started running the wire harness's and plumbing the brake system.

I don't call that plugging away. I call that real progress. You are doing beautiful work and I look forward to your updates.

Well, I am worn out but had a good day. Washed the front of the house. I am ready for some good sunsets now.

I also had time to convert my WCFB carburetor back to an automatic choke. Hope to put it on this weekend.



I know you guys don't care about my house and a picture of a carburetor but I just have to get rid of the picture of that lawn mower.

It is a good home. Only about 1800 square feet but has an unfinished full basement that is great. Especially in the winter. My man cave I guess. Thanks for the kind words.

The carb is supposed to be off of a 1955 321 cu in nailhead. I am running about 265 ci in my flathead and have never been happy with then 390 holly on it. I just can not get the accelerator pump right. This hopefully corrects that issue and will be more period correct also.

I had always ran ported vacuum from the carb but when I went to the sbc distributor I switched to manifold vacuum. if the WCFB does not do what I am looking for I may start looking for an old 3 duece set up.

LOL. Missed the sunset by 10 minutes Jester but here is a picture of Signal Mountain taken from my porch swing. This is one of my favorite places to be around sunset.....Except on Monday's of course.
