Thought I'd put up some pictures of the trip fitzee and I just took in his T to get to the Atlantic Nationals in Moncton New Brunswick. The back story is that we went last year and had a great time with some new HAMB friends and decided right away we would be going back this year! Last year it was a 71 Caddy that served as transport but this year we BOTH figured on having personal project cars finished in time to convoy together. For various reasons it didn't work out as planned!!! With time running out we decided to bite the bullet and just take FITZEE'S open T!!! Short on creature comforts but high on adventure! As posted in a different thread we made a trailer for our gear and then in a fit of madness decided to rip off the Tee's fenders and go for broke. I can't think of a better way to "experience" a roadtrip. You experience wind...pavement cracks and potholes...expansion joints...natures various fragrances...bugs of unusual size and taste...Tractor/trailer rigs to pass on the uphill only to be re-passed on the down run. There is no protection from anything. Your aware that a rock from a dump truck can be terminal...hitting a Raccoon/Deer/Moose or any other critter common in these parts could spell disaster. Your riding a 4 wheel Chopper over 800 miles with no helmet or gloves. Highway speeds in 90* temps mean your wearing tight headgear and at least a long sleeve sweatshirt to keep the sun and wind at bay. If its 60* your in a proper jacket! Sunblock is essential. Wraparound sunglasses and clear goggles at night are a necessity. All that aside....I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It's an experience of a lifetime! We started the trip as a loose grouping of 6 cars...but in reality it was just fitzee and I in his T and John in his 68 Camaro. The others we only met up with on the ferrys or at the show. After the show we followed Koolkemp and pals to Windsor, while John stayed in Moncton with the NL convoy, and then we made a solo run the next day to the outskirts of Halifax and up to the TCH for 6 hours to get back to the Marine Atlantic Ferry around a 1/2 hour before it sailed at 10.45pm. The last 60 miles showing thick forest and regular "Beware of Moose" signs as we rumbled past at 65 mph in the dusk...our heads the highest part on the whole car! Every shadow was waiting to jump out in front of us.....or so it seemed. Ferry behind us and back on the island, rain was threatening but held off as we made the 1 1/2 hour dash back to fitzee's home in Conception Bay South, dodging tourist RV's, Semi's and Highway road crews the entire way. The T performed flawlessly other than some issues with Holley carb altitude sickness while we tried to cruise around in Moncton. We did make one stop along the highway on the way to Koolkemps because we THOUGHT we had a U-Joint loosening up, but it turned out to just be our imagination. Within 30 SECONDS of stopping though, another Hot Rodder with a Bucket on a trailer (sensible! ) stopped and offered access to all his selection of tools and parts...stayed with us while we checked things out and then followed behind us right to his turn off to make sure we were OK. Koolkemp was driving along WITH us...but the bucketeer wouldn't take a chance on seeing us stranded! Cool or what!?!? Thank you man...much appreciated!!! Ultimately...all I can say about the trip is...What a blast!!!!!!
