Larry, amazing- your wife still looks about the same today. You look a little different, but still much younger than your real age.
Your wife has about the same look mine had in our wedding pictures...something like "yea, I'm really marrying this crazy guy."

Don & Larry, My lady (50+ years ago) looked like WHY AM I DOING THIS? And I think she might still be asking asking herself the same question! (sorry, just had to take this thread a bit further astray)

Santa brought me a new accessory for the wagon. Since I do not have hazard flashers, this vintage roadside reflection kit will do the job when I breakdown. I am going to mount the cage under the hood where the washer bag would live if this wasn’t the base model

LOL. Sorry, I just couldn't help myself from laughing at this. Most car owners would say "IF" I break down. Not "when" I break down.
The reason it is so funny, I had to have my Falcon towed twice this year. I still love driving it no matter what. Just thankful for AAA. Larry

Larry-

You took the words right out of my fingers.

Maybe Santa should have supplied Jeff a book called "The Power of Positive Thinking."

I too have placed my trust in AAA, and though I haven't used it for but one of our vehicles (my wife's CRV with a blown tire), it has thankfully been unused for several years. The Falcon registered several thousand miles again this year, mostly in 400+ jaunts here & there.

I've been wanting to convert the Falcon to efi for a while and have been saving my $ for that. I hope to improve starting and smooth out minor idle deficiencies. Mrs. Santa and one of her elves (son) have topped off that account, so I am getting on the computer to get a kit (possibly the FiTech 400 kit) on order. More to follow....

PS. The actual installation will probably be delayed for dryer & warmer, springtime temperatures.

Well, when it warms up a little, let us know when you get ready to start. If I am not in Tucson by then, I would like to help. Larry

Sounds like the installation could be a tech day. Back in May I read an article on a new fuel injection system that I was intrigued with. It was written for an install on a 67 Mustang.

Jeff's wagon build, our sweetie-pie's and future EFI thread...

Wow - this must be evidence of how overwhelmed I am with all my (non-car-related) "projects" in that I didn't know this juicy tidbit before the rest of you. Gene, I hope I'm free and available to help you when you're ready...

...and to bring this thread back to Jeff's wagon build...

...you too Jeff when the time(s) come to help.



Also just a little (gentle) reminder about how easy it is for us all to hijack a thread.



Oh, there's a meeting this month... the 17th...
