So, I put a bottle of Stabil in the tank, cycled it through the system, wired up the battery tender, put on his cover, and just have to wait until next season.

Looks like Candy Cane just barely fits in that garage door.......any bigger tires, and I'm not sure he would. That was one of the parts that helped me make the decision on buying this house. Buford would fit, as the garage was long enough, and the garage had 8 foot doors.

Now I just gotta get my foot healed up enough so I can get my list of fixes accomplished on Buford before next summer. Luckily, there are no major issues, but there's enough on the list to keep me busy.
Our winter so far sucks. No rain in the whole month of December. The sierras are bone dry and we get our water from the snow melt but when we do get snow in the high country our state is a "No Salt" state. DOT only uses sand and continuously clears the highways. We live in the bay area so weather is pretty tame here.

Candy Cane has less than a 1/4" clearance from the garage header. I had to remove a piece of trim from the header to get her to fit. I purchased our house before I installed the tires and rims so she did have a few inches of clearance on my initial test.

She's a tight fit but once inside there is a lot of room. Our next home will have a detached "Man Cave" with all the things us guys like.

Here is the 78 Bronco I just bought a couple weeks ago. Been setting 12 years not running and with the oil pan off of it. I drug it home finished what had been started to engine. Had to fill cylinders with pb blaster. Got it running with a rebuilt carb new fuel pump and all the tuneup items. Drove it some then changed the oil. It was nasty when I got it. It's almost clean now. Let the project begin.

I know you guys get tired of seeing Candy Cane all the time but I couldn't resist. This was shot last Sunday when the light was just right and we had some cloud cover. Note the nice bright lights from the 3G upgrade.

Candy Cane

Steve, It never gets old seeing your great truck! Hopefully one day the Lone Ranger will be 1/2 as nice!

Shes a work in progress. I have had this truck for a few years and just mostly tinkered with it from time to time. With a new spark of interest from my 16 year old daughter, and also from my 2 year old son, we have started updating it a little here and there.

I love to see such a variety of these old trucks. Had a tow job that was fun. Enjoy!
