Re: The Sweet Spot in Domestic Vehicles

Except for the few rusty spots, I never would've guessed that Explorer had that kind of mileage.
I've seen vehicles woth less than 100K miles that looked a lot worse.

Re: Thinking of an old friend...

My dad had a brain aneurysm in his early 40's and probably would've died except he and my mom just happened to be on vacation in Chicago.
Their hotel was just a couple of blocks from Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Re: Car Show Season

It's cool that the car is getting out a little. I think I've driven more this year than any of the previous 5 years. Got a little test coming up on Saturday. We are going in a caravan to a car show at a bar called the Psycho Silo in Langley, IL. It'll be about 100 miles round trip and it's going to...

Another birthday cruise today!! The cruise ins are about to come back with a vengeance... I think I have something like 24 on the schedule right now.

I understand it won't hold vacuum forever, but the stock setup should work ok even if you go over a hill.
FWIW, mine works on hills now that I got my kickdown cable fixed.
