      Come on man - now he will be stopping in between gas stops to check his wingnut to be sure it is still there!
      Alan - weren't you pondering new wheels and tires awhile back - did Santa bring them or the annual lump of anthracite coal instead ?

        It appears that I must have been a "very bad boy" as Santa failed to drop by again this year! :'(

        Yes, I am still contemplating new wheels. I have pictures of two different combinations sitting on the widow sill by my desk that I look at all the time. I really like the Budnik gasser/fueler combination but given other priorities I most likely will resort to buying a pair of BFGs for the front and just live with the lower performance for this year.

            Santa must be saving his cash so he can get them for you next year. Are you going to be at Cocoa Saturday or is that graduation party night ?

              It is a little early to know for sure but the "plan" will be to shoot over to Cocoa Saturday morning to pickup my credentials, check out the vendor area, punch my credentials and head to Sanford for Bruce's party. This could all change if any family members decide to come to graduation which is Friday night.

                First step of progress on the Torino.
                Got my rear seat covers modified, sewn up with the help on my Mom's vintage 60's sewing machine and a hell of a lot of hog rings.

                2020...year of seeing clearly for the first time in a while. And moving half way across the USA to rehabilitate a 65 year old abandoned dealership into a rod and resto shop.

                Moving to Alabama from Nebraska...I left Nebraska and came back to Nebraska. Only with a lot less snow.

                  Ah, yes. Nothing like spending stuff for Semi-shinny parts:

                  And finally a PVC system that will not leak oil all over hell and back...


                  Ordering tomorrow.
                  Going for the Sanden A/C compressor set up this weekend.

                  And after hearing about a very good thing through work for profit sharing...I am getting enough to get both bumpers redone.

                          Wow.
                          Then again, in retrospec, the difference would be who farts, and whom has controls over the power windows and the lock out switch.

                              Since the original Goodyears in front are finally worn out: Buy two new tires (I can manage with the old rear tires swapped to the front), probably Mastercraft Avengers or Cooper Cobras. 225/60R18's are pricey.
                              Get the ATF changed at 90K. Probably flush the coolant at the same time.
                              Make 5 more payments.

                              Not part of the car, but: get a new cell phone, one with unlimited talk/text/data/e-mail/etc. and a camera.
