    I have a appointment tomorrow morning and then I am going to Calhoun Georgia. There is supposed to be a swap meet and drag racing at Paradise Dragstrip.

    Went to a little swap meet and Drag race today. I didn’t find any treasures as turnout was slim. I did see these 187AA93F-2526-458D-A446-87EF2015CA6B.jpeg 40AFBDFE-C177-429D-8EBA-B18632652559.jpeg 41E70C44-F95A-41BC-9959-DD522C86DB23.jpeg 11D3924C-0155-4BBB-A14D-680C802A83FE.jpeg 2AACA19E-422C-4AEF-A8CB-08B7AA5413E6.jpeg

    Got the Vette charging system working today. Then my wife and I went to the football booster club meeting. Then when I got home I found where I had a arc at the coil. I believe that is where my miss is coming from. 446F1860-1842-44DF-B3E9-184911D7B8D9.jpeg

    Well I took Ethan around “Fund Raising” yesterday in the Corvette. We were selling discount cards for Ethan’s football team. The Corvette gave out on us. The coil went bad. :( oh well we got it back running again. We weren’t far from home and we had actually stopped a friend’s house. I ran home and got a coil off of the wagon. Now I need to buy another one.
     
  5. Are you going to the melt down race?

    No, I am going to have to skip this year. With all of the stuff after my grandfather passed away this year I have used more vacation days than normal. Also Ethan is going to be starting offensive line for his football team and can't miss practice.

    We will probably be in the same predicament as far as football goes next year but I may check into flying in close and renting a car. fly in of Friday fly out on Sunday morning.

    Well I had a brain fart today. I loaded some stuff up to take to the local cruise in/swap meet and headed out.
    When I got there I realized that it is next week:(

    I read about that, tell you what Enloe for the pleasure of driving "that" car around I could very easily live with a bad coil every once in a while. I just bet Ethan would agree with that too.

    Well got the coil fixed today. I also fixed some of the bad wiring around the coil. In the “Castle of Mess”

    Went to the cruise in today. The truck was still loaded from the swap meet debacle last week. :)

    I hung out and sold some stuff. After that I went home and got the Corvette and went back. A great day all in all. Here’s some pictures. 8132ABA6-666C-42FC-BAB9-ABD04FE28801.jpeg 095D0F39-EF63-40F3-BBCA-55FC67A622F0.jpeg 845496FD-A801-4B49-9945-9C4F8DA8A9CA.jpeg 3355151B-9C89-4CD0-AE4E-0F61D59FE78B.jpeg 83A002EF-62EC-42D0-A2F7-5BF60A70C3F6.jpeg 5F807DA9-E211-4FEA-959B-83E2E83B4838.jpeg A4683018-394F-434B-8233-B22D7559BEB1.jpeg CAF3A9E5-DA27-4861-AA90-D74FFE05DD59.jpeg C6E90C5B-29FE-4B87-975F-9F04B156AF2E.jpeg 2B010336-F021-4EA4-BDDA-837C1C17D47E.jpeg BE358489-283A-48CD-8FB4-BDDD67B8DC9F.jpeg 3FB9E236-93A2-4D69-89FD-9D867E03AB87.jpeg 5EF38778-2043-42B8-8FE5-75451CA1F3F0.jpeg

    I am trying to get out of work early today as I have to go to Chattanooga this afternoon. If I can get out early enough I believe I will drive the corvette down there.
    There is supposed to be a corvette show tomorrow in Chattanooga. I will go hit the swap meet. I like the numbers matching crowd cast offs:)

    Then there is a local car show at the shake shack Saturday evening.
    I am going to try to hit that one as well:)

    Well I went to the Corvette show this morning. I thought I would hit up the swap meet and maybe buy some “cast off” parts. That was a NOGO the swap meet was non existent.
    I did see some nice stuff though. 98690418-2314-47B7-B45F-AE4FBC47C230.jpeg 7B1F0746-9C9F-4936-AF37-6079508CC6A8.jpeg A6D496BA-59EC-4203-BE31-C5D9D1162F8F.jpeg 45D0E6A5-5B7C-4FE1-81BA-D2F424515D94.jpeg

    Well we had a good evening. Went to the cruise but attendance was a little slim because of the big show in Louisville. Here’s a few pictures. 148525D6-BFCA-4D77-BE59-0480A3F115AB.jpeg 4E7462C9-7EB2-45D5-818F-DE1F38A637D8.jpeg FE542D02-8BE0-4899-A06B-914DA34622F6.jpeg 806AEE87-6311-47D3-B02B-12B1CC0C9ADA.jpeg 57700EBC-CD28-487C-8E28-D11AF0DFCDD2.jpeg D37E5345-87A3-41C9-A6A0-C11042E75259.jpeg EB92C5C5-2D90-45AB-8EC4-45C9ED1E23B2.jpeg 77B7BBA6-21EF-4C3B-9D5B-86F1EAC6468C.jpeg

    Ethan drove the 98 Chevy Z-71 extended cab. After the show Ethan and his sister drove home. My wife and I stopped at a local bar and grill and socialized for a bit. Then we stopped at Wendy’s and got a burger. 5CB297FC-5622-4700-A42C-D66FA843DA68.jpeg 52EA85E8-8DC9-4D94-9E84-536910C9131A.jpeg E1A6D248-C007-4D09-91D6-8481B3EC219B.jpeg
