    ...of what I've done since I bought my Ranchero in 2015 to make it a reliable daily driver. That was my goal; not to make it a race car, track car, etc., just a car I could drive anywhere, anytime. Took the scenic route to Harbor Freight today just to drive it, window down, arm out, heater & radio turned up. That Sprint wheel I put on brings back memories of the wheels on my folks cars back in the day; skinny, big, & slick, but just exactly right for this car. Going in June 15th for a new windshield & seal, new headliner, and a new seal for the original rear window; can't wait to see it done.

    That's all? Oh wait, I bought my '75 GT new off the dealer's lot so my list is a bit longer. The kicker is when I find I've done the same thing for the third time!

    BB's running a manual trans; he should at least consider an OD manual trans, even if it's only four speeds and R.

    I've got a NYC phone book sized folder of stuff I bought, and things I've done, starting with the ad I found in the paper for the first one.
