Ok back to my car 😂. Went out for a spin on Thursday evening, everything was going great. I went a fair bit further to make sure the car would be ready for a fairly long cruise to some of the long term care centers so the residents could see some cars from yesteryear. I got about 3 miles from home when a valve spring decided to let go. Car ran like crap but I managed to limb home.
Got the spring installed today and went out for a run this evening. Great to be back on the road.
Man you sure get a lot of mixed reactions when it comes to old cars. Some folks love the low stance and plain steel wheels while others outright tell me they look terrible. One old car guy told me, "they look terrible, too much rubber." Or "they fill up the whole wheel opening." 2 guys pull up on Harley's, one guy says to the other guy, "why the hell are you stopping here?" He says I'm stopping to look at that old Mustang. 😂 All in all a very nice evening.
