Ssava,
Hey do they have that cars and coffee thing every week? Our daughter and son-in-law live in Franklin not to far from the Mack Hatcher and Lewisburg Pike junction. Might be coming down from WI end of Feb for granddaughters b-day. Maybe have to pop in and sip some caffeine and see some cars.

Yes. Every week. Though first weekend of the year is always biggest (300+cars).
Let me know if you come out. Would love to say hi.

Drove the 67 standard into work this morning because the 2011 Ford Escape's brakes went out yesterday for the second time in 6 months. When the 51-year-old project is the "reliable" car, I guess it's time to look into updating the fleet.

Stayed cool with the new 24" radiator installed. Have to investigate a light hesitation and surging at low throttle. Definitely have to invest in a radio if it has to do more commuter duty.

Here is a picture of the Eliminator from last weekend's local cruise in. The photographer Russ Muller does a great job. Definitely better than I could ever do.

That’s one sexy picture! The stance and the color combination is off the chart.

After 10 excruciatingly long days without her (blown engine... put in a new 302 crate engine)... got to take Esmerelda back on the road yesterday.
First... Cars and Coffee in Nashville... then dinner with the kids.

We'll I drove my 68 to work in the week before I wanted to tackle the removal of the vinyl roof. Now I'm in a "glad I did but wish I didn't" situation. :wall:
