Man! Maybe if I had been more specific than just saying modulator issues, I'd have had a chance. If there is a bright side to sucking all the transmission fluid, there is probably not much carbon buildup left in it. Great story.

Great adventure and great story. I was on the edge of my seat worrying if ya'll would make it back. And that was after seeing Norm on Saturday.

Norm is a Texan almost larger than life.

Congratulations,sir!

Great story. '63-'65 Riv is one of my "must have" cars when I get bored with the ones I currently have.

thanks for posting/sharing.... well written as always.... I'm glad that the gremlins didn't bite into your trip any worse than they did.... please keep us posted on both riv's progress back into whatever you two do with them.....
fwiw: if norm really want's a/c, he will be happier with a vintage air setup, unless he want's the car to remain 'stock'....

Great story Ryan and a great adventure, I felt like was in the seat too, white knuckled, ears wide open, looking in every mirror for smoke or something, just like my first trip in mine, just like bb1970 called it, same thing happened to me with the headlight, my clams are still disconnected! Oh yes the vacuum lines are fun to figure out too, my A/C still isn't 100%, I don't know......Brian

Why does that 65 look so much like the one I saw at Hershey? Same year, color, condition, wheel/tire...

Either you get around or you have a twin. Thanks for sharing the trip with us, and no I didn't get a pic of the Hershey Riv.
