Saturday, I went on another drive with the club. It was a gorgeous day! We ended at the Blue Mountain Ski Resort where we had a picnic lunch and then made a quick drive to the Blue Mountain Diner for ice cream.

This is a map of our different destinations, note that I left my house in Easton to meet the club in Northampton. From there we drove to the Delaware Water Gap for a quick restroom break and then over to Blue Mountain. Obviously this was not our route as the map shows the quickest using highways. Maybe my wife is right and I am crazy. 🤪

Awesome ride! Any time you wanna make the trip up I’ll detail that engine bay! You provide the supplies and I’ll provide the elbow grease! 😉💪

It sure was and this weekend is a ride to Dieffenbach's potato chip factory. Mmmmmm

Be careful, I might just take you up on that! ;) But of course, I just sold the Mishimoto w/w fluid reservoir. :(

Good progress today. Installed the intake and PS and coolant.

Took a deep breath and turned the key. She caught and started almost right away. Got the system up to temp and checked for leaks, none. Bled the coolant and looked. good.

Started working on replacing the front rotor and pad. Took me an hour to get the rotor off. Had to drill out the screws and pop the rotor off the rusted hub.

Also changed the oil and filter before getting her running.

Will try to finish the brakes tomorrow after I get my sister's tractor ready for the summer.

It was good to hear the old girl running again after 1 1/2 years.

Did a quick detail of the exterior and interior and wiped down the wheels. Had I waited to buy wheels, I might have passed on black after 'pollen season' started.
