    Awesome!! Sweet ride!! Walked down with my boys to the barn while enjoying the best day of the year weather wise and fired up the rpu. I didn’t disconnect the battery and it fired right off after turning on the fuel!!! I was pumped. Good late start for us northeast people...
     
  3. GREAT VIDEOS MARK! Yeah it was in the 80's here today, and I took the delivery for a cruise. I think the Cherry blossoms are at their peak this week, and I also have a very bad case of Spring Fever too.;) some new and older photos. Ron....[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Wow, can't compete with that but did enjoy the day and thankfully moved a 21stud from its former resting place over to its new IMG_2667.JPG home.

    Seattle is living up to it's reputation "wet" but it's also unseasonably cold. There were a couple of good days though and I did get the truck which was good as my daily driver with all it's electronics is giving may mechanics a fit. Should have kept that '55 Ford Victoria as I could fix it.

    Dumpster? Hell no! I've had that engine over 40 years.
    I sold my parents property and the new owner will subdivide it. Dumpster there for one of the rotted outbuildings and some other trash.
    Good news: engine sitting in my new garage next door.

    Should have taken & shared the destination photo!

    Hey R,
    Our So Cal weather is pretty much stable, yours is just confusing. But, we have also had weird weather in So Cal. Last week it rained, blew like stink after the rains(window/screen/door rattling winds) and then it got sunny...82. Then the clouds came back, and more sprinkles for a couple of days. The ocean has a big part in what we get. Once we get it, it moves Eastward. In the PNW, they get it worse and then it goes to you guys.

    To make you feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel, whatever tunnel that is...


    "Well I'm going out west where I belong
    Where the days are short and the nights are long

    Where I'll walk
    And they walk
    I'll twist
    And they twist
    And I'll shimmy
    And they shimmy
    And I'll fly
    And they fly
    Where they're out there having fun
    In the warm California sun

    Well, I'm going out west
    Out on the coast
    Where the California girls
    Are really the most

    And I'll walk
    And they walk
    I'll twist
    And they twist
    And I'll shimmy
    And they shimmy
    And I'll fly
    And they fly
    Where they're out there having fun
    In the warm California sun

    Well, the girls are frisky
    In old 'Frisco
    A pretty little chick
    Wherever you go

    And I'll walk
    And they walk
    I'll twist
    And they twist
    And I'll shimmy
    And they shimmy
    And I'll fly

    Stay warm, safe and Spring is just around some corner... Once you hear that catchy tune, you will whistle or hum the tune all day long....sorry about that.

    Hey 4b,
    Sorry about that weather vs. where you are. We only get to see snow in the thick of winter after a two hour drive up into the local mountains and only if the roads are open. So, you guys get to see snow a lot. Now, here is the bad thing... Today, we had to drive 16 miles inland to pick up our granddaughter's Nutcracker DVD. It was 88 degrees and very "summery" hot.

    The freeways were packed, but we took a faster back road, up and back. It was a nice day for a drive. Back on the coast, it was 83, but still hot. What a crazy continent where we are all living.

    Jnaki

    We did see some cool hot rods coming and going from the local Cars and Coffee Saturday events. Still whistling that tune, though.

    I'm in SW Minnesnowta and I was going to take the car out for a nice Springtime cruise,,,NOT.
    Had 10" of the white crap so far today, and we are suppose to get another 8" or more yet tonight.
    Add to that, 30-50 mph winds and most everything has come to a standstill in this Spring blizzard.

    Ted,

    I feel your pain. Same here. Maybe starting mine in the garage tomorrow will be the best I can do.
