fun flash back Thriller!  Thanks!

 

I enjoyed it too.  I actually called Paul tonight to chat as well - he isn’t active here any more so I’d sent him the link via e-mail earlier.

 

It does bring up the topic of having too many toys when you can’t make progress on them in six years...priorities just keep changing too regularly.

Thats why I limited myself to my current accumulation.  One rule I voluntarily follow is any car I own must move, stop, and steer with its own systems. And I have been lucky to find the few I have.

Sold the '40 Roadmaster coupe and delivered it on my way to Michigan.  Somebody might want to call Dave Tacheny if interested in the car.  He surely isn't, but I understand he is not planning to part the car out.

I had loaded a rebuilt engine/transmission on the front of the trailer along with a re-cored radiator to deliver to the shop doing the bodywork on the 76C.  These will be installed in the car so that final assembly of the body is absolutely final.  I don't want to have any part of fender or hood removal after alignment, paint and final alignment has been completed.  I realize it will be more of a pain-in-the-drain to complete engine assembly, but at a much lower risk of damaging car finishes.

 

This was a great trip up the middle section of this beautiful country.  I also stopped in Detroit to visit Terry Boyce with whom we toured the Greenfield village.  Met the Model T entourage at the village during their NY to Seattle cross country trip.  I want a Model T now, those guys were having way too much fun!

Sorry I wasn't able to connect with you Ken.

It's a busy time of year for me but next time you are driving through let me know as slipping over the Border in the evening for a visit isn't that big a deal.

I mean, if you can come up from your place to deal with your restoration hey, 45 minutes is nothing comparatively...
