This was definitely a great bash this year.  We left at 5:45am and made it home in 11.5 hours. Traffic was actually not too bad.

Chevy,
I am so glad to hear you made it home safe and sound. Did the toe correction help?

I do believe we have a new nickname in the making!
 

The toe correction made all the difference on the trip back.   No problems at 80+

Knock it off Jerry, that "C" word shall never be spoken here again. Sorry I brought it up. Or did RV6 do that?

I gotta admit, I'm a bit PO'd at Mochaman. After being introduced to his superb third world blend of cafe' on Saturday, I don't know how many more pots of Folgers I can brew. I'm ruined as far as drinking coffee now. It reminds me of when I smoked my first real cigar, no more cheap crap now. And forthwith I will refer to you as Mochaman like the others rightly do, and leave Machoman behind, deep in the grounds of your French press.

Re: Bash XV is now in the history books

I like seeing the evolution the cars go through. The new builds like Steve B and John D have all the latest stuff like LED lights and shinier paint, killer stereos and other electronic stuff.  Those of us driving 20+ year old builds still struggle to have functional windshield wipers!  Plus, when was the last time you saw a 64 Comet?  I just wish I had more time to visit with each person. Time flies when you are having fun!

Re: Bash XV is now in the history books

Couldn't agree more Steve. Didn't think I'd have as good a time as last year without my 69, but I did. Speaking of said 69 and in full disclosed mode, apparently the only reason the Mustang didn't make the trip was the new AOD was a couple of quarts short of fluid. DOH! Bad fluid capacity info online, and a false full reading on the dip stick made me think the trans was malfunctioning.  Good thing I don't try to make a living turning wrenches. Oh well, next year baby.

Don't feel too bad Bob .... I made the same mistake with my AODE.

Re: Bash XV is now in the history books

The paint may be shinier, but there was a new wiper motor in the trunk cause mine just stopped on a Tuesday night test drive before we left.

That is great news! Your tranny works. In your defense you were burning the candle from both ends trying to get ready for the bash. Stuff happens, you'll be in Michigan next year!

Re: Bash XV is now in the history books

Thanks Gary. Ya, I was as surprised as anyone that it worked correctly, didn't leak, and that I had no leftover parts  . I took a 250 mile trip up to Fresno and back to visit my brother Sunday, and the new bottom end of the motor and the tranny didn't fail. Cruising at 80 it was turning 2k rpm with the 3.25's in it. I've got a set of 3.50 & 4.11's, but so far I believe I'll leave in the 3.25's. Did you hear that Gaba?

Ya Steve, go figure. I apparently got the math in the clutch pack clearances correct too. If you guys knew me better, it's the no leftover parts thing that's truly amazing.

Thanks John. But the important car that got going was yours. Heck, I'd already seen my car, it was yours I'd been wanting to see.

It really turned out nice. Good job. Let the fun begin!

Re: Bash XV is now in the history books

John's car convinced me to go back to lime gold on mine.
When his heater hose blew at the top of a second gear pull, I remembered what big blocks are known for ... Gobs of torque .... revs were up there too!!
Ya did well mate.

Re: Bash XV is now in the history books

Bob, All the cars are important, just glad I could get mine there.

Doug, my first thought with that picture was look at those bird legs on that dude, then I realized it was me!! Is this where I'm supposed to feel violated!!  (read warped humor here)

The fun has definitely began. Miles of smiles ahead of us. Surveillance is probable a better word.

Barry, I'm glad you'll go back to the lime green on yours. I've always liked it and it took some convincing to get Sheryl to go along. Thanks for helping me get the hose back together and topping off the radiator. The spring clamps have been replaced with worm clamps. Glad to see y'all are making it safely back home.

I apologize for offending anyone in that post, that was not my intent at all. I wanted to share the well deserved pride seen in a beautiful job well done after a lot of good work. I hope you have many years of joy in that car as I, my wife, and others have had with ours. Thank you for sharing it with us.

NO APOLOGIES NECCESSARY, I can't make the font any bigger. No offense taken, there should have been a smiley face after violated  . My attempt at humor didn't work very well and I'm sorry for that. Looking forward to seeing you guys again.
