Good story to read, all the pics and such.
I wish I had braved the trip with my '68, but I wasn't confident in it making such a long trip, it's only had short drives in the last 15 years.
Was worried I'd have a breakdown along the way and inconvenience everybody.
Apparently I shouldn't have worried about that.
What month in 1997 did you buy your '70? I bought my '68 in May of 1997.
I can't read your 1st digits (is it 98k?) but I think I'm ahead of you.
