    Thanks we do enjoy it. We take it out cruising at least once a week always using back roads.

    Beautiful wagon. Sometime you'll have to come north and we'll go south and meet. Maybe Moraine State Park.

    Finally cleaned up / painted pump and brackets and installed the power steering pump I got form Murray few months back.. works GREAT.. no more whining :steering:

    Also cleaned up the block where the brackets sit and painted Chrysler corporate Blue because I had access. I’ll get to cleaning and painting the rest of the engine soon...

    Furst load was a bit better as it was $160 a ton, $120 ton right now, but I cashed in some other stuff I had (copper rads, aluminum rads, aluminum auto cast, electric motors, car batteries and aluminum rims)

    I'll have Atleast one more good load I figure, I just bought an 02 Durango to scrap.

    Put down a couple hundred miles. It was hot! Parked right here to unload bike and the radiator let go.... In the woods over a 100 miles from home.
    We jumped on the bikes and left it for later. I think its the seam on the top tank. It holds while on the road but about 2 minutes after it shuts off it starts to leak bad. Strangely, it cools and draws back from the expansion tank. Made it home. I think Ill just order an aluminum radiator. 51 years ain't bad I guess. I do have a spare that's only 47 years old..... 20200815_111235.jpg

    Although it’s not a Cbody, it’s within the theme of my tinkering this week.

    Last summer off the discount shelf at Best Buy, I bought a low profile alpine 8 inch sub/amp combo. The only thing missing were the 4 mounting brackets, I made some at work from scrap metal and they work perfect. Finally had a little spare time to install it under the center jump seat of the F150. Had to pull both seats out as the jumpseat frame bolts under the driver and passenger seat frame. Now to wire it up for some BOOM BOOM.
