Is it really Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: March 29, 2008, 10:26:07 PM »
It really really has to be Spring here in Wisconsin. Why??? Because I finally got my 67 out of the garage and was able to drive it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The day after the official first day of Spring March 22nd, we got 12 more inches of snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Giving us a whopping 101" for the year. So do you think I'm pumped a bit? Drove the car for about 2 hours just to get the feel back. The work I had done on the carb really does make a difference. Now it goes up to my firends place and we will start pulling the interior apart to put in a new heater core ( was a bit chilly today), carpeting, and upper roof rubber weatherstripping for the door glass. Then the final wire harness for the headlights and such. We hope to have all this done in the next 3 weeks because the first big show of the year is the last weekend of April. The feature car for this show is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you got it!!!!!! Camaro.

I heard it was 90 in LA.  I wouldn't like that, but it beats the snow.

 ;D Which ride do you win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ::)

Got the Headlight harness in the car late last night. Now comes the fun stuff, taking out the seats and console to take out the old carpeting. Figure we will start on that late this afternoon if we get all that out then we'll tackle getting the old heater core out.

Took my ElCamino out yesterday. Dry roads 40+ degrees. Man, the weather here is the same - upper 30's.
Its like we are stuck in a cooler weather pattern with no end of it in the forecast.

Glad to hear some of you are getting your cars out.  Another sunny day here in West Texas.   Blue sky and 86 degrees.  If it gets any warmer I'm going to wanting some vintage AC.
