Default I'm about to blow things up!

I found out there is a problem with the transmission in my '56 Ford, leaking fluid all over the floor from the bellhousing end. I am really getting tired of having one problem after another and being too poor to fix them. On an up note, I got good news about out 4th Annual Steel Stampede... I posted in the Events forum.

Ive got the one thing wrong right after another syndrome too. I did get quite a bit done though, would have got more but kept making messes to clean up. My roll cage, (just for looks) is coming along pretty good even though the welder is acting up.

Got nothing done on my stuff. I pulled the water pump on my friends Duster and that turned into a broken bolt in the timing chain cover which turned into pulling it all down to repalce the cover and let him touch up the paint.

Today I have some work this monring then put the Duster back together tonight.

I trust it has a 5-car garage.
Really, congrats! I'm thinking about my show-bird home, too.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Thanks guys. We're excited. It's a modest house 10 miles from the gulf coast. We will be using it for a winter retreat, 3-4 months a year. If we like it, eventually we would relocate full time. The house only has a single car garage, but there's room for expansion. Lots of expansion.

Hey Congrats Bob! Me, I been busy working on tractors....scored a new doner motor that I'll post on later. Went in with a buddy on a compact Kubota, frontend loader, bush hog, box blade. Proof meter only shows 668 hours...I spent the day putting some teeth on the loader bucket and replacing a rusted out seat bottom with new metal and basically checking the tractor over. Fell into a steal and couldn't pass it up. 4000
