Happy Anniversary Mrs. American 3.14159

On this day in 1986 I was in a horrible car accident. and on this day or within the first two weeks of June, James C. Allison or JC Allison as we know him bought his 1964 Galaxie 500 XL 4 door hard top convertible from his mother for the price of $1.00. He has since put a gazillion miles on her and she is officially over the 200K mark and still running.

I miss JC and called him today and several times this year but have received no answer, and there was no answering machine.

Gary,
if you ever stop in and read this, the bread truck aint got him yet, and he is on here often: https://www.fordforumsonline.com/for...rd-galaxie.18/
i'm sure he'd be glad to hear from you.

never knew you happened to have a bad accident same day he got Ms American... I still enjoy reading his detailed posts, that guy truly loves his vehicles...lorrie's rhd steering box is getting bad, he is having a dilemma on how to proceed...

hope all's been well out your way- take care-tim

CONFIDENCE: that feeling you get just before you realize the mess you got yourself into...

Re: Happy Anniversary Mrs. American 3.14159

Yeah, send him a note, or post in his threads on Ford Forums Online. I recently suggested he try calling a vendor he was wanting more detail from and he said he doesn't like the phone because he can't hear well, so he prefers written communication. Maybe you can help him get Lorrie's steering box fixed?

Hi there,

The box has too much play.

His last post was Oktober 11! Too much silence there. Does anyone live near Onalaska?

Mel

Don't worry, be happy

Re: Happy Anniversary Mrs. American 3.14159

Yeah, the steering gear has a lot of slop in it, he can turn the steering wheel a bunch before the wheels move. He plans to drive Lorrie to Huston for a Dr.'s appointment because he has been having trouble with Ms. American and doesn't trust her to get him there and back. I have some concern with that worn out steering box running down the highway and through Huston, but shes his sweetheart, and she is licensed to be on the road, where Ms. Am is not. We'll have to wait and see how he makes out.



He did post the other day and seems to be fine, and still waging war on the dust mites.
