You can always get one of those combo fuel pump/vacuum pumps to help with those issues.

That's ok, one of the parts that came with the truck was a brand new electric wiper motor.

Happy New Year! Finally got around to posting my video of getting my Rover running after sitting 4 years. Those terrible jet valve diaphrams hate the new fuel and I've replaced 4 of them on this car since I've owned this car.

I had this EXACT car in this EXACT color. Set of Cragars on it, 4 speed....slicks. Badass! Burned to the ground when I was 19.

It still remains one of my favorite looking cars....great lines.

Yesterday was Woodies On The Wharf! As usual, wish I took more pictures and had a better camera. My old Nikon P1 broke, so I borrowed an even older camera. Even another inmate was there somewhere.







Parking lot on the Wharf had cool cars.



A bargain...







Rearend shortened just a wee bit...



Nothing like a good flathead!












Tubular shocks?





He was negotiable too...



This thing needs to get out of the store more...



More to come, but I've got to get to the Soquel Show.

Even kids had things to look at...










Here's a Woody Starter Kit...





Must be some gold hidden in the pile...





This was my favorite Woody....









The owner says he drives it daily.

It was a good show although it was overcast. Even got to see the train come through.





View was pretty good too...



Thought about getting a souvenir shirt, wife said no.
