    I'm so excited! Cochise is finally getting his new shift collar and steering wheel put on this week. No more scary falling gear shift lever!

    I had this dream this morning: I was driving Cochise around and enjoying it. Then right when I was going through Richmond, he decided he didn't wanna go anymore. Of all places, Richmond. And I was thinking, oy vey what am i gonna do? So when I woke up, I was still in that weird in-between place and I thought "hmm well it sucks about Cochise but at least i got home safe" lol.....then I realized "oh yay! None of that stuff just happened!" What a goof I am.

    Richmond is the stuff of nightmares all right. That place exists soley to make east Oakland look good by comparison.
    More likely Cochise would stop outside of it and refuse to go in.

    ...kinda funny, I graduated from Richmond High. In the 9th grade, my mother decided I had had enough of my 30-student private school. I sat in my so-called counselor's office on orientation day, looking out into the main open common area of the school and being scared to death.Graduated salutatorian of my class, but i never had any warm feelings of it or any longing to attend a reunion. Eh. I missed my little school. People would ALWAYS get wide-eyed when I told them I went there, and say "Oh my! Well be careful, dear..." lol.....they should see it now.

    Well....I like my mechanic, and he is really good at what he does. But he is not great at keeping appointments. So I guess ya gotta take the bad with the good. Instead of getting some stuff done on Cochise today, I am gonna take him out with his full tank of gas and go play. (let's hope my dream doesn't come true; I will stay away from Richmond, lol...)

    Between old cracked tires and old dangerous rims, awhile back I did basically the same thing, for the same reason. I eventually bought 5 new BFGoodrich tires, 5 new Magnum 500 rims and 5 new Torino caps--plus a locking lug nut set. All of the extras are in the stowage compartment making up the spare. Someday I plan on replacing the factory jack with a small hydraulic floor jack. Although, the factory jack does a decent job and will work in a pinch.

    Yeah, Babe never had a jack or tire iron when I got her, for whatever reason, but even with Ford's design, I effing hate bumper jacks, and even if they weren't dangerous when new, I cannot ever trust them after a few uses. So I have a 2-ton hydraulic trolley jack and a star-type lug wrench for her. Now that I have the Lincoln wheels on her, I have to put a screwdriver and the locking lug nut in the glove box before I drive her again.

    Okay I have to admit, there is going to be a certain amount of satisfaction when I go out there in 25 minutes to a cold dark morning to fire Cochise up. Underneath my bedroom floor I can hear my nasty loudmouthed abuser of a downstairs neighbor snoring loudly. And his bedroom window is about 20 feet from Cochise's tailpipes....oh Karma. I love you.

    So today, my mechanic is FINALLY putting Cochise's new shift collar assembly on, and he's getting his new STEERING WHEEL!!! Woohoo! I will be seeing him this weekend. I can't wait! And I brought some more of Cochise's stuff down from Pop's place in the woods. Here they are. New step plate stickers, NOS reflector, an Awesome-looking tailgate handle (thanks for selling it, Mitch), and a side mirror to better match what he has on him. 15230634_1319701348080751_2655326900368364796_n.jpg 15219395_1319701458080740_7571388587437403845_n.jpg

    You don't need a new instrument cluster, do you?
