Well, I did move it from one side of the shop to the other via a set of wheel dollies. The high zoot tie rods are on back order and I needed to get it moved into its winter storage spot so I can get the rest of the fleet situated. I didn't want to reinstall the stock stuff just so I could steer it. I'll complete the new front end install in the spring.

Figured it was the last chance so let my son talk me into taking it to the movie yesterday. On the way we stopped to mail some letters and a teen walking into the store while I waited whipped out his phone quick and took a pic.

Now I see the forecast is relatively warm so maybe I shouldn't have tucked it in against the wall so tightly for the winter yet ...

62 degrees and my Cougar's 50th birthday was today, so I pulled the cover off and drove to a neighboring town to meet a fellow car buddy for lunch. Felt good to drive her again even though it's only been a couple of weeks since I put the cover on. Hopefully I can do it again before the weather really changes.

Nice day today in Detroit with temps in the high 40's and sunny so I took her to a client meeting :D I've been having some ignition/fuel injection problems that I think I've solved and wanted to verify. She ran great there and back for about 30 miles so I'm cautiously optimistic.

The sun is shining and I'm headed out again to put on some more "test drive" miles today now that the family has left for various activities :D

38 and sunny here this a.m., and since they haven't salted the roads yet, it was the perfect chance to get the '69 out for an hour long backroad cruise, fill the tank one more time & tuck her away for the winter.

I think I fell in love w/the old gal all over again. She drives so nice, and just looooves that cold air. :)

Took the 67 out for a drive and parked her by the shop while I worked on the 68.
