    But the price was right !

    Mine needs another bath too -- 3 days of cleaning and waxing then 2 + days of rain driving to and from work.

    Haven't had the Wagon out of the garage yet either. All the basics check fine in the garage. Oil change tomorrow and then maybe a few warm up miles. The road trip from Sioux Falls to home last fall was enough wheel time to prove the car is ready for the Long Haul. There's a few minor changes I'd like to make, but nothing that's necessary for the trip.

    It runs and the new brakes work, but since it's all new front suspension...it needs an alignment, and it's difficult to drive.
    I need a tune, and that is happening next week.

    True. You should see what they want for flatty parts.

    C10 is back to being reliable. It was the pickup coil after all.

    I finally moved on to get the A/C working. :D






    Not sure if this will work well, but it's cheap enough that it was worth it.

    If I can't get the C-10 reliable in the next couple of weeks, maybe I'll swing on the Squire so we can have a woodgrain party. Our cars are practically twins.
