First things first

J.D. apparently has found his dream car: a 1979 Chevrolet El Camino. Red. “350 ci, 4-speed auto, Edelbrock 4bbl carb.” Almost fully restored.

“No cruise control. (I had forgotten how tired your damn right foot gets on trips.) No decent stereo. AC poor, but still works. Some slop in the steering. Speedometer is variably inaccurate – not just 10 mph slow, or 15 mph slow or fast, but sometimes 15 slow, sometimes 10. I’ll get these things remedied ASAP, a little at a time. First step is replacing the stereo.”

Priorities. Priorities. Heh.

  1. OK, today is the appointment day with the mechanic. Got the stereo installed yesterday, though I haven’t quite figured out all its bells and whistles.

    Also – found a couple more glitches in the vehicle. Normal, in an antique like this. But getting them all ironed out should keep me occupied for a while.

  2. Nice car that, dunno about the investment part though…

  3. I don’t think JD’s after an investment. Just fun driving. Wouldn’t be an investment unless it sat in a garage for the next 20 years.
