Me and Chris, aka, “ndkid275”, entered our trucks in the annual Randolph AFB Octoberfest car show yesterday. I drove to Chris’s house and then he loaded up his two kiddos and off we went. Chris’s friend Paul met us there with his newly acquired 1978 GMC longbed stepside. There were about 100 entries including lots of bikes. It’s still really hot here in south Texas but Chris brought his new canopy that gave us some shade to sit in. There was some fantastic live music, Budweiser girls, food and drink vendors, and a Burger King on base where we ate our lunch. Lots of lookers and comments on our old trucks. A great time had by all.

Now for a bit of bad news....... after the car show, the Mrs. asked me to haul some new furniture she had bought. It was to have been about a 26 mile round trip. Just as I reached my destination the motor started running rough. I parked and got instructions for picking up the goods. Went back to the truck and it wouldn’t start. I could smell gasoline, so I popped the hood and fuel was really dripping from the bottom of the carburetor. Obviously the float was stuck, so I tried every trick I knew to free the float to no avail. A kind gentleman offered to tow me home but I didn’t want to take a chance on the end of a tow strap for 13 miles in city traffic. I remembered I had towing services included in my insurance premium, so I called State Farm. They dispatched a flatbed tow truck and I had it towed back to my house where I can work on it. Looks like I’ll be doing a complete carburetor overhaul this weekend!

..........been driving the 37 just about every day in the recent past. During Victoria's battle I had forgotten just how much fun it is to drive and enjoy. Hard to believe I've had it since '93 and driving it since 2000. Showing some dings ect but it still turns heads!

......maybe, just maybe, one day I'll tear it all back apart and re-do it and do a couple things different since I've learned a few things over the years...but nah, maybe let the next generation do it and have all the fun. heheheh

This weekend I was invited to an informal local cruise to a nearby historic country store that was celebrating it's recent re-opening. There was quite an eclectic mix of cars.

Took the ‘62 into town this morning for breakfast with the Braum’s Sunday Morning Breakfast Club. Couple of old iron guys in the group. Filled the tank with real gas while I was out. thumbs_up

Drove my 49 3800 80 miles round trip Monday morning. My wife wanted a ping pong table for the holiday season and visitors . My 49 is my only pickup.

So Monday morning, with a storm coming, I took off to get the table in Terre Haute, Indiana. The truck ran great with no problems. Took the back highways and ran around 48 to 50 mph the whole way.

Lots of interest at the store in the truck. A guy from a local antique truck club came up and asked about my truck . He gave me a card and invited me to join the club. He stated it was rare to see a truck in all original stock condition. I told him I was still finding Nebraska hay in the truck from years ago and the only mod was the 4.10 rear end swap. Before I got it the truck last ran in 1974.

Currently working on hooking up a 12 volt tach with a voltage booster since I kept the truck 6 volts. Pretty much got the idea after reading Denny Grahams post on the subject.

I got home right before the snow came and can honestly say it was really enjoyable.

Putting the ping pong table together ..... not so much.
