Monday’s Mood

After 90 days of diagnosing Poppy’s problem, a quick hand surgery and some frustrating times, I finally have Poppy running and not leaking from the fuel pump. Somethings just take time and patience, especially with old Hot Rods who have been worked on by someone else. I did manage to drive it around the subdivision and see if the famous 350 transmission leaking would stop. These transmission are famous for leaking after sitting for long spells. So far it is still leaking so that will be my next task for the week ahead.

We are headed to the Cold Springs Tavern on Tuesday for a great Back Road Boys adventure and a great lunch spot. We have around 30 signed up so we should have some fun at the restaurant and Pier enjoying the ice cream and beautiful views of the Pacific.

Have a good week!

Stay Tooned!

For the last 90 days I have been working on getting Poppy running correctly. My old body doesn’t do so well under the car. The stool is to help me get up.

First drive was today and it felt good in 85 degree weather. Leaking 350 is next.

Sherm captured this 39 convertible sedan for all to enjoy.
