        Spent an hour putzing around on my little tractor. Pulled steering column out, used my hydraulic press and pushed it apart. Polished the bushings and lubed.
        Its ready to back in. Can at least steer it now. Transmission next. It dont shift.

            Yea, it's on my list too. I'm kinda broke and like an idiot, I prioritized going to tomorrowland and they canceled it this year and I lost some money, on top of being kinda brokish this year.

            The last car I will buy for the rest of my life, is going to be a 72 or 71 (72 preferred) valiant 4 door sedan.

            I need to start saving and then pursue it. OR trade an existing car If the right deal came up.

            Either way, there's always THAT car you are always pursuing.

              Believe it or not, I’ve started a small fund to buy my dream car as well, a 1970 340 Cuda. Only a couple hundred bucks in it, but I hope to one day find the right one. Fully restored of course. Probably when I retire if they still have gasoline by then

                Back home for the night. Trash is out, garden watered and that shower sure felt good after a very sweaty day at Carlisle. Next 2 days shouldn't be too bad. Just hope this rain coming up the coast doesn't shift in. Looks like Philly is getting a good bit tomorrow.

                        Morning. First cup done.

                        So our province has had zero new cases of the virus 9 days in a row. This wont last. I figure another week and we start seeing the numbers change.

                          We had about an hour of rain in middle of the night...

                          Now some more rain...

                          It's good because we haven't had any rain for a little over a week...
