    Thought I'd post a few pics of Cochise and his new toys. Enjoy! -Cindy 14517535_1264956106888609_6785916566434567676_n.jpg 14522741_1264956076888612_1621599274619656581_n.jpg 14563296_1264956166888603_1057792129512389717_n.jpg 14572367_1264955943555292_3828583387343464447_n.jpg 14572776_1264955896888630_3358440843301433704_n.jpg 14606461_1264956053555281_8568674821795326899_n.jpg

    Just got back from the car barn, washed Cochise and took him to my job so my buddies could see him, buncha good guys there. Now all I need is a few days off i a row, so i can get all these new parts on him.-Cindy 14718783_1283051545079065_6956541607092432245_n.jpg 14610968_1283051581745728_2165658052242291497_n.jpg 14632957_1283051641745722_6966359503128821342_n.jpg

    Cindy,
    I wish my storage unit matched my Ranchero...

    Question for you.. Are your door panels and Dash black?.
    If so your seat would have been black also..

    Mitch, heh I never noticed the match. Kinda cool. The dash is black, yes. But someone definitely wanted to change out the interior, because the door panels have been remade and covered with a greenish fabric. they also put this fabric on the headliner. The fabric was, i suppose, intended to match the color of the car. I don't really have a good shot of that yet. I do think someone must have taken the original seat(s) out at some point. This bench was obviously not the original. The native blanket I have covering it is sufficient for now, tho I would like to do something about that tear. -Cin

    Thats right, Andrew. He seems so much happier nowadays, and i guess I would be too if someone started fixing all my "old age" aches & pains! :)

    So today I went out to give Cochise a pep talk. I inventoried all the stuff I've been buying for him (stuff I haven't put on him yet, I mean) and just enjoyed the quiet of the car barn. My friend/helper bailed on us today, but thats okay. It was nice to get outta this tiny apartment and have some space around me. 14925570_1288088224575397_8502417275041599175_n.jpg

    Thanks, Basstrix, I think he's awesome-looking but i know I'm a bit biased, lol...I'd say for his age he looks pretty good. I know he gets lots of attention when we go down the street!

    Well, today's visit with Cochise went a bit unexpected...the cattle that usually graze down the road decided to sample the tall lush grass that grows behind the car barn. so, when i say car barn,I REALLY mean it....... 14910504_1290147797702773_7907322614522152351_n.jpg

    ....we didn't wanna scare them, so we waited till after they were mooooved on to start em up. Here are some pics of stuff we did, like getting rid of the homemade wooden armrests, fixing the locks, etc. 14900483_1290298794354340_5074784199290825861_n.jpg
