    Hi guys just wanted to say hello.
    Just got a 78 GT to replace my 65 f250 as it was getting to heavy for my wife.
    A couple of my friends have El Camino’s and I must say this is different, and no shrinking violet!
    You will hear from me no doubt asking (begging) for help as I work through the car.
    So thanks in advance

    Barry

    Soooo...is it just your username that is 'Snoopy?' Or your Ranchero's?
    You should see if you can find a window decal (or three) of Snoopy as the "World War I Flying Ace."

    That picture had me worried there for a while— I thought we were upside down here in NZ not you in the UK !!

    My sister has a red de chromed 77 that’s called the Red Baron, so mine just had to be Snoopy

    It’s certainly eye catching! And you don’t see too many of them in the UK

    And just so we're all on the same page, the World War One Flying Ace's kite was a Sopwith Camel.

    Hi Kiwirancher
    How are things down there?
    Been over a number of times on holiday, but obviously not recently.
    Regards

    Hi Snoopy , pretty good all things considered . Not much in the way of restrictions here in Gisborne that affect me as I am retired. Mask wearing is about it . I can still surf but our monthly car gathering hasn’t happened for a while as outdoor gatherings are restricted to 100 people and it would be hard to control the numbers where we have it , but I am surely not complaining! Shops are open, went to the movies Saturday night got takeaways on the way home. No COVID in Gizzy , there have only been 2 cases here since it all started so happy to stay here in paradise!
