    Forgot about the wet floor problem in the el camino. Pondering if its brake fluid as it is on the driver's side and it hasn't rained much lately. Also its a little oily. RR turn signal and brake lights not working. Trying to remember if it was doing that when/before I parked it. Front works-I thought old cars the blinker wouldn't flash if a bulb went out? Four way works on the other three corners. LR works fine. Left turn indicator on dash isn't lighting up or flashing. Gotta trace the wire from front to back. Tail light checked out bulbs and wires.
    Adjusted the throttle bracket all the way back and FiTech said 90% on TPS but the tension on the TV cable makes it hard to press the pedal.

    Will 56 be completed before northeast Rod Run,

    Or will I give up and buy that 1320.

    Will the 57 be in the shop by the northeast Rod Run?

    What's a 1320? Two 660s

    Decided its too far to drive just to spend maybe two hours at the show before giving up due to the heat. 92* and 62% humidity. We'll wait and see about next year. Want to get the 71 going before next month's olmarais.com River Run. Greaserama is Labor Day weekend. https://www.revitupcarshow.org/ www.basehorcarshow.com

    Just thinking that tomorrow's stop is the same place I have been to twice already and even stayed at the same Motel 6 in the same room both times. One more reason not to care if I go or not.

    Danger is my middle name. I forgot about the throttle not opening all the way on the el camino. Might explain lack of power and shifting problem. Read there are different length cables. I did put a new one on at some point and changed to the fitech tbi.
