We're still sightseeing and took in a car show today. Saw this cool '68 and thought I'd share...

Can't wait! We're winding our way there and will call when we hit the city limits.

Re: Crusty Rusty Leaky Squeaky 67 Step

I had an opportunity to meet the man himself and let it slip past. It's something I'll forever regret. I sure wish my situation was different and he could have dropped by my make-believe, sanitary shop to see the great progress on my 10. Next time Vic!

Cool.

The funny part is that "it's sooo easy to fall down that slippery slope. As a matter of fact the HARD part is not giving in, terribly hard".

Hey John, Mom always said you have to strike while the iron is hot. Letting the title company twist in the wind would have been notso cool. We'll be back up that way sometime in the future. Besides, this will give you a chance to get back on track. It was great talking with you!

First you gotta come up with a cool thread title.

Re: Crusty Rusty Leaky Squeaky 67 Step

OK, finally back home from an extended vacation and ready to pick back up on CRLS. Kathy and I took off and went straight north to the Trans Canada Hwy and west to Vancouver, down to Seattle and back home to KC, more or less following the path of the impending solar eclipse. Only hitch on the trip was running over a boulder dropped in front of us by a dump truck and wiping out the chin spoiler and putting a major dent in the engine cradle / skid cover. All fixable and fortunately didn't knock a hole in the pan(s).

Chip and Vern brought their new ride over yesterday and it's a knockout! I believe their plans include some transplants from Yeller, but I'll let Chip lay all that out when he finds time to launch a new build thread. Looking forward to what they do with this fine little four-eyed Jimmy.

Time to get cracking...
