First, I took my Dad’s 56 TBird out for a shakedown after installing a new carb. Some asshole in a Bro Truck was flying thru our neighborhood at 45 MPH, while looking at his phone. He drifted into the center of the street, and nearly hit me head-on. Thank God I already sorted the brakes. If he hadn’t heard my tires…
Took the Lightning to a local sod farm today, and got a pallet of Bermuda. For some reason no stores carry sod past May of each year around here. I would like to personally tell the HOA t̶h̶a̶n̶k̶s̶ to go fuck yourselves for making me do this during the hottest part of summer. I spent my whole summer tending to my…
This is their idea of a refresh.
I want to celebrate his freedom from pain, and his life long love of early Thunderbirds. I’ll start by posting a pic of his 56, he never got that last ride. All I needed was a couple more days to sort out the brakes. RIP Daddy.
Yesterday I took a day off from going to the hospice. I feel a little guilty, but at the same time I really needed it. I spent the afternoon replacing the leaking heater core in my dad’s T-Bird. It can now be driven for more than 5 mins. Once I go thru the brakes I just may be confident enough to leave the…
Yesterday was eventful. I gained another doggo AND another vehicle somehow. I’m supposed to only be fostering the dog, but he’s already attached to me like glue. Some lady made an appointment to put have him put down at the local vet. Apparently she’s going thru a divorce and neither of them wanted him. The vet…
The money has to be used to purchase a vehicle from the 60's (the deceased’s favorite automotive era). So what’s your pick?
It’s a sad fathers day, normally I detail his car for him. But this time it’s to prepare it to be sold, as he won’t be driving anymore. He was put in hospice last week.
You could drive it for a year, and sell it on BAT and at least breakeven.
Found this gem of a 1984 Hot Rod mag in my Father’s garage.
Sad day. This is my Dad’s 56 T-Bird 15 years ago, and then how I found it today after sitting approx 10 years. Out of service because of a transmission seal, now it needs a lot of other stuff because of sitting for so long.
The MDX passed it’s first milestone today.
I don’t remember which one of you shared this gem a few years ago, but May 1st never goes by without this song being stuck in my head all damn day. Oh yeah, NSFW.
I saw everyone’s favorite CUV today, he even had the top down.
FFWD to 5:00. Drunk guy flies past a police car, a chase insues. At one point this was 1 block from my house. He drove damn good for a drunk, and almost got away.
Impromptu car show at the nursing home. Went to visit my dad, and discovered this 57 Chevy parked beside me as I was leaving.
