This may be off topic but I'll post it anyway. Someone will delete it if it's not proper. Car guys are some really good people. Was on the way to Goodguys in Des Moines on July 4th traveling Rt 34 west. Just went through Mount Pleasant, Iowa and was out in the middle of nowhere. Went down a hill and started up a long grade and when I gave it a little more gas I got the "whaaaaaaa" that you get when you're running out of gas. You know the sound I mean. But I had 3/4 of a tank. Had to keep easing back on the gas to keep it running and losing speed until right at the crest of the hill it died completely. Shoved in the clutch and coasted off the side and as amazing luck would have it there was a frontage road and right on the corner was an autobody shop/used car lot. Nothing else in sight for as far as you could see and I stopped 100 yards from this place. With a T-bucket and a '55 Chevy gasser type in the front row of the lot, I knew this was a real lucky place to be. I barely got the hood up when the shop owner came across the road to see if I needed help. We checked and had plenty of fuel pressure and the filter wasn't plugged. He went and got a 4x4 mule and a strap and pulled me across the road and up to his shop. Not gas, had to be spark. That's when we discovered the in-cap GM HEI coil was hot enough to fry eggs on. Rapidly failing spark mimics running out of gas real well. He went into his shop and came back out with a used HEI coil and tools. With the replacement coil installed the car fired right up. He gave me his card with his cell phone number and told me if I had any more trouble before I got to Des Moines to give him a call and he would come out with a trailer and get me. He spent a half hour getting me going and absolutely refused to take any money for the coil or for his time. The whole ordeal could have been a major pain if he hadn't been right there to make it a minor bump in the road. So, if any of you guys in that area don't already know it, Jim Redmann of Lockridge is good people.
