Looks like the metal moths have gotten to the quarters and front fenders!!!  But as you say...she's a workhorse!

She's been around the block...she taught the teenage boys how to drive, carried feed from the grain store when the truck was broke down...she's been hot rodded some, but she's a tuff old bird....but her age shows, the trip across the muddy corn field shows....she no longer gets washed and waxed as when she was new....but that rocket motor is bullet proof...just keeps running strong, uses a little oil, but a valve seal job would fix that....


And yup....I put a pager motor in her dash, with the switch under the gas tank...the tarp in the trunk hides the AA battery....so when you push the button...that rocket motor just purrrrrssss.... Cool
