just don’t get the enjoyable time as our car buddies down South & out
West. It is what it is, but we do have a lot of fun in our 3 months of not
winter. The Club had a great (I’m told) cruise to view a private
collection in New Hartford. I wish I could have made it.
OUR Show is now completed
for 2018. Twas a damp day but the 180 cars or so that made it had a good
time. The rains came hard in the early afternoon, so we tried to wrap up
awards & such by 3pm instead of the usual 4. I know I was home with
the Trailer earlier than ever before. I was a little under the weather
that day, but the folks I did talk to were appreciative that the Show went
on, despite the weather challenges. Except for a sound issue, I heard no
complaints. No one sunk in the mud either. It really wasn’t that bad, but
the media overhyped the weather as usual & I believe it kept a lot of
folks, especially if travelling from further away, away. We’ll have to see
what the coffers bring in for the Burn folks this year. I hope we do as
well as usual.
Not much to report on the
home projects. Jake’s car is still going together. Next step is to install
the drive train & fabricate a tranny mount for the Jericho. Then we
can measure for a driveshaft. Not too much more after that. My 62 runs
& stops, but doesn’t run well. It has a valve adjustment issue (did
you know that poly 318’s had solid lifters & adjustable valves?) or a
compression issue. We’ll check when we have time.
Meanwhile, coming up we
have Carlisle, The Syracuse Nationals & Mopar Weekend at Norwalk, all
in July. Then we have the Longley Bros Show on Aug.4th, the AMC
Show on the 18th, & probably our annual picnic sometime in
there as well. I’m sorry, but it won’t be at our house this year, too many
obligations at home.
See you all
