Do you know the difference between kinky, and perverted?
Kinky is when you use a feather.

Perverted is when you use the entire bird.

I bought these two items to insulate from the engine heat but have not use either of them. With both dash and rear AC working my kids have no complaints.

Looks like a good time was had by all: you, and your little Happy Campers! [emoji106]

I meant out of the norm. You know, having to build up the van before actually taking a camping trip.
Definitely, we had a blast!

Glad the van is holding up.
We got an 87 Chevy 4x4 work truck and LOVE it. Older vehicles are the BEST!

Yeah, I saw your post. Nice find man !

EastCoastCB 06-03-2019 06:50 PM

Haven't seen you since the wedding! I don't normally drink and I think I had a few GALLONS of beer that night...
Was a great time though and Roxy just commented how nice it was to see you folks there.

enjoying the camping?

The inside. Stripped down to metal. I sprayed Rust-Oleum rust converter where ever I saw rust. The kids say the inside looks like a cow (white with black spots).Attachment 34932Attachment 34933

Great observation! You now have a Holstein hauler heifer!
Gonna name her, Bossy, or some similar bovine appellation?

2 hour trip. No problems.
However, the engine died a couple of times after I started this morning.
No idea what it would be.
No trouble while driving though, only when I first started it.Attachment 34972

Sometimes my truck will die a time or two. Usually sitting in the sun on a hot day. Its the TBI on mine.

$5,705 was the high bid that the auction closed on. Doesn't say if it sold at that price though...?

oricha1984 06-25-2019 09:59 PM

I stopped at 4300.
I'm pretty sure it sold for what it closed for.

You guys both may have condensation buildup in your tanks, lines. Try some gas line antifreeze.

Is this what you are talking about.

I had the idea of cars being like the human body, the less chemicals I put in, the better.
