No extra charge for the mischevious grin that took a few to wipe off. Man that thing perks right on up and picks 'em off like a real gem.

Man ,,what a wheelie..lol.

I was thinking the same thing, BUT, we don't know what she looks like either...

Damn cool to drive the flatty. Don't they idle at about 350 rpm too ? Been 51 years since I had any first hand dealings with one of those and the memory has long since faded.

I WAS going to load up the trailer with more brush this afternoon, but from when I got home from the bone cruncher at 10 till now the temp has DROPPED from 43 to 30 degrees and the wind is whipping 30 mph again. Wind chill is 18 degrees, and snow flurries keep passing thru. No outside work for me.
I REALLY need to get heat in the "shop" for next winter. I could be rebuilding the back seat for the Chevelle, emptying boxes of "stuff" and pretending to organize it... Unfortunately, it's 30 friggen degrees out there too...

Of course, GTP transmission is same problem if I ever want another mile from it. Add to that parts store usage being an admission of stupidity now. That all just don't sit right with me and for now am avoiding the subject but the burner is on. Of course, the record bank balance I have now emerged simultaneously with a global crisis making improvement efforts at this time impractical. I may need that money to replace paychecks. But forget all of that.

I can't make this stuff up... Grape is an individual greater than me. Yesterday, chick at work says I was in a dream she had, along with the car and a popular celebrity. People yell and gesture wildly at the car in traffic nowadays. But I have to lean on it hard to get a burnout these days, I never wanted an attention magnet car, it is worn heavily, and will crush my personality if it breaks. Thats just not why I fixed it up. But its all that or nothing now. When it and me get into coworker dreams, thats just a bit much of what I don't want.

Poor poor pitiful me loves America, Arkansas, and Pontiac though.

I agree, right now may not be the ideal time to be spending reserve funds.
LOL. Yep we have a machine but about all its good for is a vacuum. I couldn't get it to recover and believe it or not I have replaced dozens of condensers all by myself using machines. But here, vac with machine and charge with gauges is the answer I get. Recovery is a stumbling block, on the P. The GT is leaked out, just has leaky low side port far as I know. I can fix that, have valve and tool. Might be able to vac it if I tried real hard but no success when I tried to recover the GTP's charge. But, I do not own nor have I ever used gauges. So there am I. Gary did name some place when cornered. But I only ever had A/C so that Mom doesn't get sweaty greeting hugs in the first place. Not really an issue anymore, we do footshakes now.

Too Many Projects I took a trailer load of brush to the compost site today, before the cold front rolled in.
Got the summer tires down from the "loft" for the HHR and 1 was flat. It had that irritating slow leak all last summer, so I broke it down and wire wheeled the corrosion off and put it back together. The tires I removed from my wife's car last week are the same as mine and 1 of them was better than one of mine, so I swapped them and then balanced those 2. Put them on the car and was about to back it out of the shop when I remembered I had to tell the computer to "learn" the TPMS again. That is a pita, as you need to run around the car and let enough air out of each tire for it to "see" it is going low. Got that done and took it for a short ride to check for vibration and all is good. By then the wind was howling with gusts at 40 mph and I thought the sliding doors to the shop were going to blow off when I opened them to get the car out. It was 5pm by then so I was justified to come in the house and camp out for the rest of the day...

idrivejunk Too much pollen anyway. Yuck!



Boss ordered a new whip for the big welder. It worked OK today for a little while then back to hit-n-miss. Time for chow anyway.

Rip it. That'll change your tune.

I drove it here to work with the issue. It was like minus 20, had just washed her, and brakes felt funny. Brake light is not working.

I'll drive it home that way. Only problem is that DELIRIOUS is in the garage on the roto. I need to install my control arm stabilizers while I have her inside.


After that, a rip snort may be just what the doctor ordered.

Bummer.
My mud flaps are way too small to host those characters and my real life chrome lady didn't like those on other trucks, so I took that as a strong hint not to have them on mine...

3 of my cars are still off-site. My chiropractor wants the '70 out of his barn now and I am supposed to bring that home this week. I was hoping it could stay until the concrete and lifts were settled in the new shed.

And your cars are at your house now, so... Stripe some lukewarm asphalt for medicinal whiffs.

You know the road in front of John or Steve's place looks like a dragstrip by now.
