went for a drive.
#1
Went for my first drive of the summer right after my insurance called me to tell me I was insured. I changed the oil this weekend and the spark plugs. Tuned the 750 quick fuel carb. The engine was running smoothly and extremely loud Tongue. Going to the classic car club meet tomorrow to kick off the season and the local mustang club on Thursday. I am changing the front shocks this weekend and have to check with my boss if I can get the rear end done on the company account and then give him a little overtime to pay for it. {it's easier on the wallet. That way I get to keep my full paychecks for the rest of the bills}

Those first drives of spring are like therapy after a long cold winter.

I hope it is enjoyable Eric.

That's great! Hope you had or is having fun at the meet. Would like to see pics of the cars in the club. Extremely loud is good! After 10 years since I've been back, my neighbors never once said a word about my loud toys so must all be good Angel
