I took the bed floor out of my truck yesterday to remedy a situation with the fuel tank vent. I've got it worked out now and the bed floor back in. Changed the oil and greased it in preparation for our trip to Radium Hot Springs car show this coming weekend.

I also did a bunch of work on my 2 daily drivers, both of which I had to repeat several times due to parts not working as they should. In the end I got it all sorted.

Lots of garage time makes me a happy camper, no matter how frustrating it can be at times.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Finished the two carb linkage on the dragster, went to a car show, sold a Model A pickup box to a young fella and saved the world from communism.

Been working on the girder for my new bike project. Trees are almost done, legs are almost done, gotta order material and learn to cut single point threads to make my pivot bolts. Would have been cheaper to buy one! But, what fun is that, then my bike would look like too many others.

Great photo Soltz. Maybe another stop or 2 along the way to make the trip better.

Went to the Radium Hot Springs car show and back. Burnt a lot of fuel and had no breakdowns in our group at all. Photos to follow.

I raise a lot of our own food... beef, chicken, eggs & veggies. I've always had a green thumb & have been working on freshening up my above ground beds & planting my fall/winter garden. Planted tetragonia, spinach, bok choy, arugula, multiple lettuces & the herbs Mrs Tripper likes to cook with! I have a home growed salad nearly every day & have to keep that goin' on! Took Sunday off & lounged around but I'll be back on my coupe all this week!

Wow Trip! Home grown food on the table and hotrods in the shop. You pretty much got life dialed in there bud.
About all i did was change the springs around on the Vette speedster woody.
The transverse composite springs were way to stiff for a decent ride. I took the back one off to be replaced with lightweight coilovers and decided to see if it would work in the front as it was narrower and meant to carry less weight. That worked out well. The front came down about 2 1/2 inches and the spring flexes
easily.
