After sitting in the yard since Nov with only a cover on it I thought I'd see if she would fire. Battery was strong and turned her over nicely, choke on full and pumping the gas the little six sprang to life. Drove out for gas on Fri, and groceries on Sat, and to the beach today. This little Ranchero sure has endeared itself to me....I really enjoy it. Still ice on the shoreline of lake Michigan.
