Highboy: Years ago there used to be an interesting place near Vernon (Tappen, B.C.?) It was the White Post Auto Museum <http://www.gaspumpclassics. com/home/whitepost.> I couldn't call it up on line so maybe it no longer exists. The old guy running the place had lots of old cars including a Cord. He also had parts - Offy manifolds for flat head Fords; T Model parts; ****** parts (he had a pair of doors for $50 I should have bought!).
Have a good time!
Are you driving your '78 F250 or your Smart Car?

I'm ****y. My mom's health is failing really bad, she has a blood oxygen level of 50ppm. She woke me up at 4am because she ran out of air, because the idiots at Praxair didn't tell us that the O-Rings break down, and have to be replaced. It took 2 technicains to evaluate my mom to get her a compressor that turns air into oxygen, so she can go off the tanked air.

I am sick again, which is deadly to my mom. If she gets sick, then she will die. She probably wont live out the year as it is...

So that pretty much sums up how I am doing....
