Stealing an idea from Ramcharger Central, what did you do to your FL car today? Did you drive it? Work on it? Buy something for it? Wash it? Ignore it?

Fess up!


I must admit, I walked past the 57 in the garage this morning and realized how dirty it is and that I have not driven it since early January. I plan to wash it today and use it to run errands tomorrow.

Drove her wishing I had time to wash and detail her some. The last time I drove her there was a little salt on the road and now I have that dang white film all over the sides and tail.

Swapped jets and power valve, and adjusted the float level on the Holley on my wagon, it is much happier. Drove it on a half hour cruise then got some food and headed home.

Received my Wilcap 392-302 transmission adapter last night!

I translated 2 chapters of the '60 Chrysler Service Manual into Swedish, scanned in the pictures to the chapter, enhanced them and changed the text to Swedish. The chapters was Mirror-Matic and Automatic Beam Changer.

I started my 62 let her idle for fifteen minutes or so, later I'm gonna go to my dad's and start the 57 and let her idle for five or ten minutes then I'm gonna vacuum it out. I keep getting this yellow dust blowing around when I drive it, the seat cushion material is dried out and blows in my eyes and mouth and stuff when I drive so that's next on the list.

I remember the yellow crusty foamrubber powder that seemed to be EVERYWHERE in the car together with what I think was laurel leaves coming out from the fan ducts every now and then!

For the past month I have shoveled snow from the shop site onto bare areas like the street, sidewalks, lawn ... to melt off. I had over 8 feet of the stuff in late December. Down to a lot of bare spots and about a single foot where it lingers. After a drying spell, the ground will be firm enough to work and the shop project will begin again in earnest.

Utilities in the ground first, then foundations, then interior slab, then up with the structure, THEN bring in the cars and the fun can begin !

Funny you should ask... I chipped ice of my garage floor that formed underneath my '61 today. Water seeped in a few days ago and froze with this sh!tty 10 degree weather. I am so fvcking fed-up with winter, I HATE living in Minnesota. The crap EASILY outweighs any of the good things here in the rustbelt. AAAAAAAUUUGGGGGGHHHH!!! Thanks for asking.

I dont start mine in the winter, no reason too, probably does more harm than good. I figure if I cant run it on the roads for a half hour and get her good and hot that the condensation will sit in the cylinders and settle through the exhaust. Maybe I am wrong, but I just dont do it.

*****************************************

I get to asking myself why I live where I do from time to time. OK, ... only as the end of winter drags on too long.

We do have 8-9 months of really great weather !

My answer comes via Arne Nilsson while on a visit a few years back. He said the reason them Swedes have such nice cars is because of those long, nasty winters. You just hole up inside a shop and work on them ! What else you gonna do ?

This will be my last winter without a "hole" to hole up in !

Ask the guys in Phoenix about the weather and they will bitch about the heat ! No place is perfect, and if it is, the cost of a postage size plot of dirt is worth more than a car guy can afford.

I was born in California. Lived there through the early 60's. It was wonderful. Still got a heap of family there. Unless you have a stout six figure income, you can pretty much forget setting up shop there from scratch. Even on the outskirts of BF Egypt it is stupid expensive. And let's not even get started on taxes ! Big M can prolly chime in with some expertise on this ...

I settled for the long winter because you get at least 8 really good months and culture is reasonably at hand, and I can afford to live within my means. Sadly, Santa Barbara is out,

I looked at my car today. I had the garage open and was working on another car. I'll wash it next week and get it ready to take my friends out and around LA for next weekend who are flying into town from New Jersey. What better way to be shown around LA than in a vintage ride..

I would be happy with Pacific Grove. I fell in love with that place a few years back. Will go back this year if I can tear away from here and take my pop to the Pebble Beach Concours this August.

But I have a huge distrust of CA's utilities (like everyone else) and would definitely "settle" for somehwere in the southwest like the Phoenix area.

I perused epay for tempting overpriced parts I might need, contemplated piecing together the trunk extensions and cutting the quarter (Left) for tacking in the lower rear patch panel, and then did a few minutes dreaming on what the car will finally look like when I'm done. Then I continud on by and went out the door to go to work on my friggin' day off. But I am grateful to have work to go to, so screw my FL today. 4 Trillion dollars is hard to come by.

I suspect the Utilities in Calif are cheaper than Phoenix, (alto like you), I do't trust them. We rarely have to run the AC in the summer, and in the winter, I sometimes run my gas fireplace which is a lot cheaper to run than the forced air furnace.
My Electric bill is typically $60 and my gas was $40 this time, cause I ran the gas fireplace quite a bit during some "Chilli days" (for us).
As usual I drove my car today, went to Carl's Jr for lunch.
I am also contemplating what to do with the incorrect door panel material SMS sent me.
I called them, they said , we will check and call you back---that was over a week ago.
I waited 2 1/2 years after I placed the order for the door panels, so needless to say
I am not the least bit impressed with their service.
I suspect, that due to the economy, they just grabbed something that was handy and shipped it so they
could get the Money

Yes Chuck, the original paint is a real bummer to strip - I had to strip my speaker mesh 4 times too and ended up sanding away the last paint.
Then the stripper is not the same as it was in the old days......

Cut yerself an extra slice of raisin pie for that maneuver ! If I were closer I'd come and pin a blue ribbon on you myself ! I'll take an old car in actual use ANY DAY over a parking lot full of over polished gleamers at a "car show" ! Besides, which of the two is actually showing off the car in its true context, anyway ?

You are my kind of guy.

Thanks for putting a smile on everyone's face who saw you. That is the ultimate ambassadorship of promoting the Forward Look .... just driving them like they were meant to be driven.

The weather was kinda mild here today so I thought about taking the '60-NY out for a spin, but it was covered with dust and other stuff so I stayed inside and worked on the '57 instead.
Been cleaning up and painting the underside of the '57 lately as the rear-axle and springs were out. New poly-bushings and a fresh coat of paint are on the rearsprings and rearaxle now.
Also hung back the almost 'one piece' exhaustpipes.

Drove her wishing I had time to wash and detail her some. The last time I drove her there was a little salt on the road and now I have that dang white film all over the sides and tail.


Eeek! Don't sit quietly on the pavement next to the rocker panels! You'll be able to hear the rust bugs chomping at the metal.

I started my 62 let her idle for fifteen minutes or so, later I'm gonna go to my dad's and start the 57 and let her idle for five or ten minutes then I'm gonna vacuum it out. I keep getting this yellow dust blowing around when I drive it, the seat cushion material is dried out and blows in my eyes and mouth and stuff when I drive so that's next on the list.



I used to get this too, so I took a half cow hide and draped it over the front seat. Problem solved! Eventually that hide will go into the new upholstery I figure.

Started up the '59 and let her idle until warm. I think my choke spring isn't working right, it take a bit to get her started.

I started mine yesterday. Man it was loud in the garage! I can't wait till it is warm enough to get it moving again, if I can afford the gas!

Today I've been admiring my Dodge while dismantling and cleaning all internal parts of a brand X aut trans. When finished I seated myself behind the wheel, closed my eyes and daydreamed about dry roads with no salt. Opened my eyes looked at the steering wheel and tomorrow I'm going to order the epoxi putty to fix all the cracks...

I cleaned out years worth of junk and debris from a rust-free '59 Fury 4-door HT that I and M'lisa picked up on Friday. Didn't find a sack of 100's or Jimmy Hoffa in the trunk, though. ---John

I piled myself, Michelle and 3 friends into the Fury, and took a spin over to a buddy's house in the afternoon, drank a few beers while looking at his 58 Fury and 2 Cadillacs in the garage (1 an Eldorado Biarittz Convertible...), called into a local restaurant on the way home, sat outside in the Autumn evening and ate our meals 4 feet away from the Fury. Coming up 600 miles on the clock now, and it's really starting to feel like driving a brand new car rather than a bunch of bolted together parts! Just started to rain as we pulled into the driveway at home, after a great day out in the sun!
