To The Trashy Trans Am.
Here it is, in all its glory.
I haven’t uploaded a fully edited YouTube video in 11 months, and never use the Closed Captioning, so while I was watching back my “BARN FIND FIRST START IN 20 YEARS OMG” video with the cc on, I saw some gems nearly worthy of Devars.
Quite well, in fact, now that I found why it had no spark.
I didn’t fire up the Esprit last night. Too busy cleaning out the shed that I need to rehash this fall. A post for another day, perhaps. I did, however, find time to plumb the electric fuel pump I got.
Spent a few hours here, a few minutes there, got more of the interior out of the Esprit, and demounted the 1990's Fleet Farm tires (that I found the receipt for inside the car!) from the rally wheels that are in... OK shape for being buried in a field forever.
And this is as far as I’ve got.
Literally. Had a few spare minutes last night so I vacuumed up all the loose
dirt rust out of the trunk and driver’s front floor of the Esprit. Before:
A running one, duh.
Picked up a parts car for the Trans Am project this weekend.
It’s not THAT bad, right?
Cars with buttons on the steering wheel to change the fan speed for the climate control. Daddy Doug alludes to them existing.
Saw Toy Story 4 last night (SMALL SPOILER INCOMING)
Saw Rocketman this weekend and noticed a 1978-80 Monte Carlo on the street outside the scene of the Troubadour, Elton John’s first US concert. Trouble is, that concert took place in 1970.
Finished my ghetto rotisserie.
Trans Am is still a mess. But progress is being made after it sat all winter while I built a work bench and shelving.
Hellcat swapped Durango. Yes please. (just take off the stickers and light bar)
