    What's obnoxious about A/T tires? I snore louder than them.

    I’d like to go, it seems feasible. It’s about 475 miles, seven hours to get there. I’d plan to go in the ole Jimbo, of course. It looks like I finally got all the ignition bugs sorted out, and she’s doing better these days than she has in the past two years.

    The only thing I can't say 100% I stand behind is the transmission. At some point its been removed and had service, but it's kinda sluggish, sort-of slides into gear.

    Dad said it used to slam thru gears.

    Before I drained all the fluid out the trans, it would bang thru gears, now it just kinda slides thru gears after a fluid and filter change:(
    I dumped all the magical pixie dust out.
    (it was getting stuck in 3rd gear and not downshifting, I guess from sitting for 6+ years)

    So I'll wanna have that total rebuilt real stout before I even consider a drive to Texas.

    As much fun as it would be to actually meet some of you kids and clowns, there's no way I could finance a trip there ........
    And then there are the times I just don't feel sociable and stay in my own little world.
