Subject: Ford saves Plymouth!

Well, folks, Ive always said the best part of Ford-truckin is the rescue
operation.  It was stretched to the limit last night by my buddy and his
Barracuda fetish.  He found a very nice 64 Cuda on Ebay.  Bought it, and flew
out to drive it from central Cali to Vegas.  Well, About 200 miles into the
trip, the differential exploded.  I got the word at 4 o'clock yesterday.  So
the hunt was on, found a truck in the form of my sis-in-law's 2000 Ranger
4x4.  I hoped the 4.0 and 4.11 gears would do it ok.  It took awhile to find
anyone that would rent me a dolly, cuz I d be towing with a compact.  Got
everything together, and got on the road at 6:15.  Pace of traffic on I-15 to
Cali was 90, so I made it to him in under 4 hrs, gettin there at just before
10pm.  Took us an hour to get the Cuda hooked up on the dolly.  Had to back
it on and rope the steering wheel.  Which I later found out was horribly
illegal.  Anyhow the whole trip back we were limited to 35 mph, because any
faster and the Cuda would start to swaying, and became unnerving to say the
least.  It took us from 11 PM till almost 11 am this morning to get back into
Vegas.  That lil 4.0 was an awesome motor.  Pulled without a whole lot of
trouble.  Stopping took a lil bit, but that was to be expected.  Even got
great mileage.  Only used about a tank and a half of gas, if that.  I always
swore by full size, but that lil Ranger won my respect last night.

A Special thanks to our fabulous Ford Filly Lisa, and her family, for being
there in case we needed to crash in LA last night.  Glad I could count on ya!

Darrell & Tweety (who would have made the trip, except for the tickin ticker)
