Took a drive

As some may know I had a lot of trouble getting my rebuilt engine's intake to seal up. Then there was the running hot issue. So I have only taken the truck out on a few 20 mile runs staying close to home. Today a member of my Cougar Club was having a small picnic and car show at his house 50 miles away. Cougars of course but other Fords and cars too. Of I went as on the last drive the temperature gauge actually was just falling short of half way which I knew was 200-205 degrees. Good, then bad. Benicia bridge has a 2 1/2 mile of bumper to bumper traffic. The truck wasn't made for this and since when does this happen as I had done this bridge many times on a Saturday morning. Yet the truck did fine and the gauge was steady so the rest of the drive was mostly fine even though I-80 from San Francisco to Sacramento to Tahoe/Reno can be a pain. So no Cougar pictures just the two trucks at the picnic, one I spied around the corner and a near truck. It is nice having a normal compression 390 vs. the low compression 360. Even in basic form it is much quicker. Gotta get working on the dual master and power assist I have had rebuilt. Last shot thrown in as I don't see those anymore a 60 Galaxie and 63 Marauder.
