    That's part of its job; removing moisture. I don't know exactly how or why, nor do I care. As long as it does its job, who am I to tell it how?

    She thinks she's ready to drive my Ranchero. Someday she may, who knows.

    I remember wehn my daughter was that young and was asking myself "if" she would ever drive my ranchero! Now she is 19 and "DOES" drive the ranchero (s)! Your day is coming and it's not so bad as long as you teach her well :). (Your little girl is a little cutie)

    Grandkids are great.
    When they get that funny smell you can pass them off and your wife doesn't give you crap about it.

    I let my daughter drive the Cougar on PROMenade night. Spent many hours teaching her the difference between her Milan with power disc brakes, and the much heavier Cougar with manual drums. Also the difference between a V6 and a V8.

    By the time she's sixteen, you'll have another project.

    Grandaughter's someday car

    First time she's ever drove. Did a great job for only being 13. The one picture is where she asked if she could drive the ranchero and I said sure. She's the only one that's ever driven it since I've owend it. It was a great cruise:D Sorry for all the dust on the car, I'll get around to washing it this weekend.
