    I'm having driving-Cochise withdrawals. But my mechanic will be helping me finish the column project soon, so I gotta be patient. I thinkI'll go out to the car barn today and hang out anyway. Maybe chase some mosquitos away from Cochise and tailgate party with the cows. ;-)

    Tailgating a cow is a good way to get pie on your shoes.

    I hope there is at the least an electric fence separating Cochise from the cows. Far enough that the cows can't reach over and rub on or chew on the Ranchero. A bored cow can destroy a car easily. Deer are just as destructive, I had a really nice 67 Country Squire wagon stripped of all the big fake woodgrain border trim and dents put in all the panels from head butts thanks to onery deer.

    Well, the good news is, the guys in charge of the cattle don't usually allow them over by the cars. The not-so-good news is, that occasionally they get bold and wander over to them anyway. I don't blame them, really; the grass grows tall and lush over there, especially around the vehicles that don't get regular visits (me and Cochise and Henry feel sorry for them). And of course I always keep a heavy duty cover on both vehicles even though they're under a roof.

    Heh...this is what happens when your gas gauge doesn't work. Thank goodness this is a pic from when I first started fixing him up-all better now!

    When I began working on Babe, I had no clue how much gas was in the tank; all I knew is that I had put in a bunch. So imagine my surprise when my friend Steven looked at the connection and found it nearly falling off! Once he reconnected it and the needle began to rise, imagine my delight when I had over half a tank!

    Thanks! Yeah it was love at first sight, for sure. Was kinda funny though- I didn't know what the heck Cochise was at first. I used to see him around my town but only in the dark, so I went home and told the roommate I saw a cool looking old El Camino, lol....

    To be honest with you I looked at a few el caminos myself, but I couldn't do it. I've always been partial to Ford, I blame my dad. When I bought the ranchero he actually took it out for a test drive, which was really surprising cause I've never seen him take any of our cars out.

    I shopped around for a few years, and yeah, took a few Elkys for a drive. Boy am i glad i waited. After a few months of seeing the "mystery car" cruising round in the wee hours of the morning, one day I was sitting at a stop sign and Cochise went sailing past me with a For Sale sign in his back window. I chased the guy down, The rest is history.

    It'll happen. They find their own name sometimes!

    That they do, but not every one does; I think that's because we don't see them as more than transpo, as opposed to seeing ones as family.
