..Where ya going to dock, I mean park it.
Cindy agreed to pull the 4Runner out of the garage and let Max in. So...all I need to do is extend the garage wall 8ft, and relocate the big screen into the kitcken. :lol:

Seriously though...I had to rearrange the garage, but all 17' of the USS Max will clear my shelving by around 2 1/2 ft...and... will require the tennis ball technique to bring her into port. :thumbup:

Hey...BTW....you just got me to post #1969

Update:

This bird never landed. }:(

We drive all the way to freakin Portland to witness a rebuilt motor that smokes at startup, has very low oil pressure that hardly moves with RPM change, leaks, and looks to have been freshly painted about 40 years ago, and no receipts... I guess this POS owner figures all prospective T-Bird owners must be "bird brains". http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/forums/images/graemlins/pissed.gif http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/forums/images/graemlins/sniping.gif

Still looking, 58-66 T-Bird, 64-65 Falcon 4sp or vert, 67-70 Mustang 4sp or vert. Under 8K - mild project.

Yep...good eye, thats the one. He changed his add cuz the no dings and no rust, I put to rest for him as well. The car was clean, but I am NOT doing drivetrain AND paint on a car with 10K end value.

There's a local '65-ish T-Bird I've seen for sale near me. I can get the phone number off of it and maybe take a couple pics after the weekend for ya.

Thanks Brad, that would be great. I'm not so sure we're up to that drive again unless we have a little prior knowledge that the car is what the owner says. Let me know what you find out though.

That looks like something I would like more info on also. Is that a tree at Kims house I see?? :)

I've looked at alot of adds, and that looks simular to an add on auto trader IIRC.

Moo info please.

Yes, it's in my side yard. I have not advertised it anywhere--you've seen one baby blue 'Bird in the Auto Trader, you've seen them all, LOL! I traded my truck for it this spring and it's just been sitting ever since; have only taken it to work once. I'll PM you with info on the car this evening or tomorrow morning... Lots and lots of catching up to do at work and at home having been gone for #4 days for the Round Up!
