The hurrier I go...

I've slowly dug my way into the garage further than I've been in years...3 corners I've repossessed, as I shelve and organize and try and find things and get them more readily "to hand" than they've been.

Tomorrow my nephew arrives with the 42 year old Galaxie I've spoken of before; having driven it for two years, he's getting ready to take it off to college but it hasn't been a "highway driver" all that time; no one has checked all the things that need looking at before it goes "on the road".

(Ball joints, tie rod ends, steering arm, idler arm, drag link, motor mounts, transmission mount, u-joints, shocks, brakes, front wheel bearings, hoses, water pump, fan clutch, belts, marker and parking lights...I have a page long list at this point.)

Of course the cool front we were promised didn't break and it will be 99 tomorrow as well...

Hope I'm forgiven for not getting around as much as usual; I've been trying to flip my hours and be outside before I'm usually even up to "beat the heat".

May the weekend be wonderful for each of you!

Hope you stay cool - I'm going to quit complaining when it's 80 now ;)

Well, trying to beat that Gods-awful heat is definitely a good reason! I try to be grateful for everything the Gods give us in nature, but heat like that is awfully hard for me. :-) Hope the Galaxie doesn't need *that* much help, and respect for reclaiming most of the garage!

The first U-joint I ever changed was on a '66 Galaxie. My fathers back was bothering him, so I put it over a ditch and crawled under it in the snow. I was sixteen.
