Default What was Old is New Again or Deja Vu

So I hadn't planned on buying a car but one came available that interested me. That deal never happened, but I learned that my old 64 was coming available which prompted me to call Russell Street. I sold Russell this car a few years ago for what reason I don't remember other than I know Russell wanted the car and I thought it was an excellent place for it. I was right. Russell took excellent care of the car, made some major improvements and enjoyed it.
All of that said, today we picked up the car and drove it home. Now I am faced with the dilemma, which car goes to Detroit? This one, the Pontiac or the 54"?

Ron: If it will help you make your decision, to the best of my knowledge this coach has never been seen at a PCS event anywhere, at anytime!! Very few folks even know/knew that this coach existed, it's been in this local area for the past 30 or so years and garage kept.

He doesn't know it yet, but I am going to let the mechanic decide which one I take. That way if anything breaks down on the way there is someone to blame rather than myself. I would be really excited to take this car for the reasons Russell said. I think it will do very well in competition. I want to get a little bit of minor body work done hopefully before Detroit.

Ron, if you ever want to sell her, she'd look breathtaking next to my limousine

Default Off to the Mechanic

So far I have changed the cot in the car. The newer model 30 did not look right so a low level only has taken it's place.
Today it was off to the mechanic. Last Sunday when I drove it home I noticed some white smoke coming from under the hood but could not find anything wrong when i looked under the hood. Seems a PS line was leaking spitting onto the manifold, A new one was made and put on. The radiator looks bad so a new one has been ordered.
