I'm predicting the trip getting extended due to the ingestion of a little too much of the local spirits! Good luck and be safe!

Brake cylinders and herrassment from the cops. Drove my Riv home to Louisiana from Santa Rosa, Ca 10 years ago. similar situation, the car had been driven maybe 1,000 miles in 7 years. made it home-no problems...thats when I completely fell in love with my car. Was herrassed by cops in Arizona (thought I was moving drugs), but the the first thing to go out when I got back home was the brake cylinders.

I have a friend that lives about a quarter mile down the street, that always says when I leave, watch for the deer, they'll run out in front of you. I'll past this bit of wisdom on to you, watch out for them, they're tricky little dudes. Good luck, Zip.

You'll get pulled over while stretching the legs on the new Riviera. From there the police officer will find a brick of black tar heroin taped to the bottom of the "package tray" inside the trunk. Then you will be locked up while your attorney Blake flies in to try to save the day, however not before you make friends with some fellers from AB which never leads to good things. I see 3-5 in the clink and released on good behavior.

Have fun!

Tell Norm that Bruce and Stevie want a trip report Wednesday at the Mexican restaurant in Cedar Park when yall get back to town!

Problems? Our 1964 buick LeSabre ate two waterpumps between Dallas and Austin in '72, so thats a for-sure bet for at least one Riveria. Im also predicting vapor lock once you cross the border into Texas. Otherwise you will have a great trip!

No break downs but on one car or the other a heater wont work up north and an AC wont work down south. Have a blast. Looking forward to reports with pics.

ANother movie in the making? Could this be your first full length fictional tale? Perhaps Judgment Night (Bronx, NY version).

The 65 will have a bad wheel bearing, and u-joint.
The 64 will have a bad water pump and voltage regulator.

Assuming twenty year old rubber stuff, I'm predicting tire , hose, and belt issues.

But, regardless, I predict you'll have a great time !! Go for it !!

Ok so her goes:

NO automotive problems that cant be fixed in the matter of minutes.

BUT!
Your flight into town will be delayed for no reason on a bright sunny day.

You will be stuck in traffic no matter what time of day it is trying to get back to Gow's place to finally see the long awaited prizes.

Depending on what the nights social occassions bring you will remark how unintelligently (or funny) people from Boston talk.

Your excitement around seeing and driving your new cars will only be surpassed by the quantity of drinks consumed while looking at your reflections in the shiny parts.

You will remark about how youve got a long day ahead and how you are tired from the traveling but one particular long winded storyteller just wont let you call it a night and that will be okay because all of his stories are so cool that you will be so interested in them that nothing else will matter while hes talking.

Youre next morning will be nearly afternoon by the time you get going.

You will drive several miles to Dunkin Donuts where they will get your order wrong and , yes, it will be your fault.

You will load up your cars and head out of town. By the time you hit Providence you will remark that "Boston is nice but you could NEVER live there".

One of the cars will get pulled over for speeding in Ramapo, NJ

A couple close calls of nearly running out of gas but no problems, you will get to Baltimore.

While at the show you will talk about how you are still pretty tired from some yank' keeping you up all night telling stories about nothing.

You will continue on from the show to Texas.

At some point one window will get stuck down during a rainstorm...thats it.

Travel safe, guys!

Default Re: Road Trip Revival: Part 2

buy a spare fuel pump forom speedway motors they are cheep
you will have to do about 750 miles a day and that may give you some repair time
spare battery , jumper cables, tools ,voltmeter and test lite
tranny juice, some 15-40 diesel oil is good for fill ups
gas can at least 2 gal and a tranny funnel
and a tow rope is good if one of you is out of propulsion
if you got too little to worry about rags, wheel beaing grease,brakeclean

and likely you will have a couple wheel cylinder leaking by the time you reach home

heck i messed up a brake drum hauling to world of wheels this winter and had to get it turned, that will really make a car crabwalk, bad going in a enclosed trailer, that was a field service repair, had a decent winter to work outside in indiana lasr year
