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.
