* Most of my "getting hammered" isn't the result of hail...
I'm closing in on the final stages of an Interstate Cruising Machine that I guess most true ford blue folks wouldn't appreciate. But the follow on to it may just be a completely new idea.
You have many of you heard me bitch about Ford not making a truly small truck these days - my idea since I ran into a guy with a whole collection of Fiesta and Festiva cars is to cut away the body behind the front "OFFICE" and mate a pickup truck back window and cab wall to it, then add a bed however I have to do it.
As opposed to a Ranchero - it would be dubbed a Ranchito...
But the main set of wheels as it looks right now is a forelorn and screwed Suzuki Swift 3-door hatch similar to a Geo Metro I once had. Fun cars to mess around with - and almost nuclear when it comes to fuel consumption.
~ and it has an air conditioner in it....
(the difference between a swift and a metro is an extra cylinder, that brings it up to 1300 cc's)
If it gets me around the country to go to all of these meet and greets, who cares what it is, right?
I spent an hour or so yesterday fitting a new fuel pump into it with solid soldered connections because it was an in-tank fuel pump, and those damn things always make me nervous. I would be highly upset for about a millisecond if the car blew up because of a spark in the fuel tank...
thanks everyone in MD we had a great time, ate a lot of sea food, ate more sea food, had sea food before we left to come home. it was great. My wife and our friends were totally blown away with the Charleston restaurant, none of them had ever been to that caliber of a restaurant, and none of them had ever spent that much money on one meal! I paid the tab to keep the shock from spoiling their dinner. we were there on our friends anniversary so that was nice. 2 days later was my wife and my anniversary, we went to fogo de chao for ours.
spent Saturday in DC, I didn't think I would ever get to be in the nations capitol so that was a great time. visited all of the historical sites we could find and to top it off a friend of the couple we were with has a friend who manages one of the harbor cruise companies so we did several boat trips (for free)
They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.
