f350 lady says thanks! [John Pease ]

Subject: f350 lady says thanks!

I just want to thank all of you for the help you gave me concerning my '55
f350. Now I can go to the mechanic's informed. It was such a relief to
find out that my recent "boil over" had nothing to do with the blue/gray

I also learned that some of you name your trucks. Well, now I feel
compelled to confess that mine was given a name almost immediately when I
got it last spring. I named it "Bruce" after the grandfather who bought it

My everyday vehicle is a Mazda Pick-up dubbed the "piece of _____". (feel
free to fill in the blank, with whatever you like. I didn't want you guys
to see my "unlady like" side:-)) I still haven't forgiven that Mazda for
demanding a motor out of me at 85,000 miles, last spring (about the same
time I got Bruce back). In fact Bruce got us back and forth to work while
the "piece of" was being fixed. Didn't pass up many gas stations with old
Bruce but it got us there, and saved us the expense of a rental car for
three weeks.

Does anyone know of a site for Mustang enthusiasts? I have a '64 Mustang
that needs all kinds of attention. The body is in good shape. Never had
any putty, etc. But the internal workings need attention from sitting too
long. The mustang belonged to my Dad, and I drove a'65 very much like it
in High School. Daddy and Grandpa were ford men all of their lives. Never
bought anything else. I have one of his small Ford tractors, too. All
need work, but basically in good shape. They have just been neglected and
in need of TLC and $.:-(

Thanks again,

Terry in IA
