Had a guy drive over from Spokane to look at her last week. He also has a nice '63 Ranchero (at least based upon pictures on his phone). Sadly it's not going to go over there to live, but told him (Paul) to share his Ranchero experience with us and to contact Nathan over there to keep him in the loop.

Sadly, as well, I seem to have misplaced the keys to the car and have looked just about everywhere for them. No doubt they'll show up in the last place I look - or right after I've spent the time and money to re-key the thing.

Freddie [Krueger] lives on.

Have not been home much to look; since I am remodeling the southern estate so I can move down there. I will be home a little on Friday and am always turning things over to see if they show. I am rather baffled by their disappearance.

Perhaps Gary has an extra set on a gold chain around his neck?

He was the last one to drive it...

...but I'm sure I opened the trunk after he and Debra left, which required the key.

One thing is for sure, I'm not looking forward to having to pull door cards and "pick" the locks to get the tumblers pulled out.

Or you can have a locksmith make you a new key to fit those cylinders.

I lost the key to my Motorcycle about 6 years ago. Locksmith came onsite and made a new, double sided key in about 30 minutes using some feeler tools, a vice, and a file. A single sided, 4 tumbler key can't be too hard to make.

Option 2, see Jeff's Guinness sized ring of keys, one of them is bound to fit

I have quite the pile of keys too. Should go try them all.

You know, that may not be a bad idea; re: locksmith. The cost of new parts is almost $100 with shipping and then the work to remove it all. If they are equal, give or take, would be well worth it.

I would first reach out to Gary. He may have a spare set he forgot about. I recently found a spare key for my van sold last year. You may be lucky.

Alas... I do not have another set. I thought maybe there was a spare set when I was selling the car, but never found another set. I probably had a spare set of the ORIGINAL keys, but only had the one set with the new set I put in during the three-week makeover.
I wasn't the last person to drive it.... Roger drove it up into the garage after I got out.

I wouldn't have attempted driving up is driveway either. That 45 degree incline is scary.

Yes- you are both correct. The keys thing I will find a solution for if they don't turn up. The 45 degree incline will be solved when I move from here. I'll eventually get to both of these.

I am happy to report the keys turned up today!

That's all. Back to what you were doing...
