Wife and I went to get a load of mulch this morning, and then I got to work on the insulation in my garage. Hopefully I'll get that part done tomorrow. But for tonight, truck is on the lift! Didn't lift it, but I did park on it.

Busy day, I drove the wife to the grocery store at 7 am and then went to Home Depot for a few electrical items. Then met her in the store to finish up shopping. After we checked out at the grocery and came home, I thought I had a couple hours to load brush before getting ready to go get my '70 Chevelle. NOPE, I forgot I had bought a gallon of weed control and 4, 50lb bags of fertilizer at our favorite farm store, but they only have "curb service", so I had to go there and pick that stuff up. It's about a 35 mile trip now, but they have the products I like and better prices than anywhere else. Got back from that at 10:30 and started pulling out the stuff I wanted to take with for the Chevelle retrieval. Good thing I started an hour before I had to leave, cause it took that long to round it all up and get it in the truck... This car last ran about 4 years ago, so I had a battery and jump pack, 5 gallons of fresh non-oxy gas, air tank for low tires, pressure gauge, winch, in case it didn't run, bag of straps and ratchets, spare tire for the trailer, along with a small bottle jack/handle and a 4 way lug wrench. Good Grief, Charlie Brown, I had most of the back of the truck full... Getting it on the trailer is a whole story in itself, so I'll leave that for another time. It did start right up and, eventually, drive onto the trailer under it's own power...

Saw an old friend across the grey room today. Then a backyard picnic at the folks' place.

Hey Mitch... Hell yeah, Chevelle home.

Cake was one of two like it on the day old shelf, marked special order and chocolate. Ma got a little bent when she cut it and saw white cake. This morning I can testify that black icing = green stool.

That was a Ma's three berry kind of throw-together cobbler pie thing, John. Caramel swirl ice cream not shown. Celebrate your big homecoming with a treat. Steve like pie?

Dave that must be pretty exciting to have the lift ready. Nice! Wish I had me a cherry picker right about now.

By the way, when I asked about the wheelie thing other day I just had too many posts to make on my mind and kinda forgot what I put and how. Thought you guys might have been talking about a magneto or something.

Not much gets past David.

Can't think of much to do today.

I wondered about the pie. It sure did look good. I tried to find frozen cherries at the store yesterday but had to settle fof canned. Inalso bought some Granny Smith apples to bake one with.

It is supposed to be 72 and sunny here today. It would be good to get out for a "romp."

For the life of me I can't remember what three things were in it. Blackberry, cherry, and

Her and Cuz-ette were saying yeast was in short supply. Cuz was telling of serious issues with the new QuickFuel carb on his Camino and I was telling of how his boy has my EPS750 carb that I need back desperately. Long story and carbs are cool but Grape whistles in cruise mode these days.

I was just looking at how pollenated Grape is and thinking she might like a bath. Already mid sixties here today.

Lets try this new adaptation and see if it goes "viral": Romp - snort

Bounced the GT off the fuel shutoff briefly yesterday (105) plus set cruise at 90 to hang with traffic on about a ten mile stretch. She's had hers but needs gas now.

If I limp the GTP into the driveway to air up a tire, this day could be a Grand Three. But I am afraid of first and or reverse going away so may just roll the compressor down the driveway enough to reach. Wouldn't want it hauled off for looking inoperative but I bet its been over a month in that spot now. Just glad theres no lake under it. Guess I could start her up to breathe for a few in Park.

Here is some shortwinded outright Saturday morning thread fluff...

Remember Andy? Remember I started unplugging the welder to thwart his bullheaded spirit? Well, this was me long about midweek, just trying to finish one spot-



I managed but y'know what? Touche', Andy you rascal.

Agh... It will be a Grand Three soon as I give The Loud One a pollen rinse. Theres good news and bad but that pie had blueberries, blackberrys, and raspberries.

I think I decided to change the DD GT's pet name to Boo-boo. Because she has some but also because she is like the black bob tailed cat named that, who had its tail ate by ants as a kitten and got shot and lived as an adult. And because of there were two Aunt Bettys and now theres just one. And stuff.

GTP trunk was bone dry and she didn't crank half a rev before starting. I rinsed off the pollen, poop, and grass, then aired up tires. Thats the good news.

Bad news is I had to get out my knife and downgrade her to the same "removable carpet sections" status as my others. Both sides. Yippie! That was sarcasm but just one word and claimed. Of W body life, I grow weary.

All I gotta do is get the P back in the street. Thank goodness it still goes back and forth. I need a transaxle guy to debunk theories I have.

Sure, I'll Bogart the daily thread some more...

The free refill fairy came last night. Looks like I'll need to make holes like in the GT, theres only one very specific place I can park the GTP (and Model J). Exactly the angle where it leaks most.

Anybody want to tell me where I can get a dune buggy tuned PCM (or if it runs without trans wires) and how to connect a TH350 or TH400 to an L67? Or would it cost less to use a 4L60E with standalone controller? Wish there was a way to carb it with the blower but haha, no. Something has to happen. Two strong engines are going to waste.

Yep, a coupla drain holes here and there will help.


Isn't the car a front wheel drive?
If so, just whatever is on there will fit. (I think)
