Monday’s Mood

Mel Lawyer started a “Street is Neat” page on Facebook that has stirred many old-timers to post photos from the ’70s & ’80s that made me pull out some photo albums that I haven’t looked at in years. I have great memories of those times going to all the NSRA events with my family and car. I have included some photos for your review.

As for my work on the Woodie, I have discovered another problem. The electric fuel pump has quit so I am in the process of replacing it and the clutch. The bad clutch was causing the slipping and chattering while driving and shifting. You gotta love a new Hot Rod and it’s ongoing problems. I will overcome these and be back on the road soon.

The Grand National Roadster Show is in a couple of weeks, so I will be talking about roadsters for a few weeks which is my favorite subject. I still have aspirations of having another one as my last build/ride but only time will tell if that comes true.

Stay Tooned!
