Howdy y'all,

I am itchin' to get back onto the open roads!!

After limping around with a wore out heart for over 20 years, Dean FINALLY put some effort into giving me a heart (engine) transplant. I'm out of surgery and am now recovering nicely. Thanks for asking! Here's the story of the engine rebuild: Resurrecting a '28 4 banger

To celebrate being mobile again, I'm gonna drive to the Niles Depot on Sunday, May 27, 2018. That's Memorial Day weekend.

We are going to meet in Walmart's parking lot, near Dean's house 9am. Walmart's address is 15555 Hesperian Blvd, San Leandro, CA. The plan is to go down Mission Blvd. and arrive in the Niles District of Fremont around 10am.

Join us!! Let's hang out in the parking lot of the Niles Depot and wow the crowds with mechanical wonders of yesteryear.

Let Dean know if you're gonna be there so we can try and save some parking spaces. 1-510-919-2833

Happy trails to you,,,,, Lurch
Old and ugly is beautiful!!

Sounds like a lot of fun. I also just got an engine rebuild finished in my '62 C10. Just got it back on the road yesterday. I have plans for that Saturday, but at the moment, Sunday looks clear. I'll have to try to make this one.

I read through your rebuild thread last night. WOW! What a labor of love. Your trials and tribulations make my rebuild look like a walk in the park. Here's a LINK to my rebuild. No where near as crazy or inventive as yours.

I look forward to meeting Lurch in person in May. Will Justin be there as well? Either way, it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I hope we get a good turn out. How was the turn out last year?

I"m teaching my son to drive Justin, so both trucks are supposed to be there. He already knows how to drive a manual stick, but not one without synhcromesh gears. ;-)

Since Lurch was under the scalpel last year, he didn't go to any shows, so there wasn't a 'turn out'. This year is the first time that I've put together this drive and meet.

Dave, looking forward to seeing ya! I just read through your rebuild and I'm amazed at how fast it went! Congrats!

Cheers, Dean

I had the advantage of having an engine that was only a little over fifty years old, not ninety. There are a lot more parts out there for mine, so I didn't have to reinvent what wasn't available. I was encouraged by your creativity.

Good luck teaching your son to drive Justin. I still have a primer fender on my truck from when I was teaching my daughter to drive in the '62. That's a story I'll tell in person if you're interested.
