He loves to hunt. He came out to the farm one day and if I remember right it was a Buick Rendezvous or some kind of SUV. It look like somebody taken golf clubs to it it was all beat up. I didn't ask him what happened but there had to be a good story there. He told me this winter that he bought a pickup truck so he's ready to go anytime now and will just drive out from work LOL. I've gotten to be pretty good friends with him and the other day I asked him since I've been in there so much do I get invited to the Christmas party. They all just laughed at me

Maybe I replaced A reproduction with an original lol. It is a challenge to get down in there. It's been exactly 5 months from the surgery and the hip seems to be working good but I seem to have a really irritated tendon. I had a steroid shot last week and he said don't climb any stairs but he did not say anything about hanging over the front end of that car. I told him cruising season is getting here and I need to be able to have one foot on the accelerator and the other one on the clutch. He thought I had mixed up priorities

I had it hooked and then had to tap the outside clip in.  Not much room and it doesnt want to go in there. I had a small block of wood and a hammer that I could get a decent hit on it.

Standing on your head doesnt give you much leverage!

I ended up getting a little rough with it. I could not get the end pushed up so it would latch. Finally I got a small piece of wood and was able to tap it up in there with the hammer and it caught and stayed.

 does anyone have any good tips for getting the clip beside the battery tray in? This side towards the fender wants to slide in nice but then you cannot hook it over the radiator. I've tried hooking it over the radiator but then I can't get it to slide in the slot. About to drive me crazy

Looks like the front springs are wrong in the pictures.
What week did the 6500 redline tach show up?

If you have the pictures in your phone, and android, I use an app called reduce photo size. I reduce to like 640x480 and you can save right to your gallery. i dont know if this app works with an iphone or not. That gets them small enough to post.
The tire stickers I have seen are rectangle on the drivers door, I dont think they used a round one in 69.  The carb wont be numbers matching but will have a date code.

Mike does outstanding work.  I used sikkens rally black and it is in a sheen that I didnt have to flatten it. It sprays really nice too.  Its a little pricey tho
