    Cochise is so lucky to have a conscientious owner. When I put Babe together with the Windsor and C4, about half the parts were junkyard, the rest new, but all a mishmash.

    Thank you, Andy. Sometimes it's a long time in between stuff I can do for Cochise. The Big Dash Project is gonna take awhile. But this mechanical stuff, I figure he's waited years for attention, I don't want him to wait too much longer.

    ....the guys at the shop also suggested that before too long, I get him some radiator help. The one that's in there is the original one. They said "they don't make 'em like that anymore" and they think I should send the original one out for rebuilding. Thats down the road, tho.

    A good radiator shop will make your original one better than anything you can buy off the shelf.

    Then that is what I'll do. I am really glad when the shop guys tell me something and then you guys here validate it for me.

    Cochise and Henry in the barn. Henry's missing his barn-mate, but I'm bringing him home tomorrow. Power steering system all nice and rebuilt.

    I know how you feel . Put mine in for a few rust bubbles on both rear wheel arches and a small amount between the arches and the bumper. Thought it would take a week and I should get away with about $2000 including paint. Yeah , right. 3 weeks and $4500 later I have it back and am going to get a mate to do the paint for me this weekend . Oh well , it's only money ---- . They did give me a reasonable sized jar of good old American dirt that they found between the two skins at the rear though !

    Heh, there's an idea. Pour it into an old car ashtray and make a planter out of it.:)

    Well, I left work early today, called the shop, and they said "oops we are still waiting on one hose so it'll be Friday you can bring him home",,,,oh well, least I got to come home and have a drink out on the deck.

    Their plants may not be able to handle high octane American soil.

    Nah, that plant that Aragorn applied to the Ringwraith sword wound on Frodo--that was a gorgeous little weed. Plant that one, since it counteracts Ringwraith poison from their sword steel.

    Do you put it in a square glass so that it becomes a beer float?

    I understand that that is how Canadians make beer, and he is real close to Canada.

    That's sad, if I have to slurp the head off of something I would vote for a over chilled beer.
