Yeah it is hell on an old man, with a fixed income.
With three good engines and trans combinations in the garage: I elected to go with a 144cid, 85 HP engine in the Refugee from the peanut patch Ranchero. It is comming around good with just the paint work and interior to put in it. Then I can drive it to the shows and cruises.
That 427cid in the Galaxie has had it setting in the barn for awhile.. I sold a 302 engine and thought I could drive it to the local show tomorrow and cruise in tomorrow night. So what happens? it rains like Hell so I can't clean the dust off it. Maybe I can fill the tank with gas and drive it to the cruise in next month.
That's just the way things go with a po ole Ga *******.
BTW: That Refugee will make a good parts chaser won't it? :t
