Hauled some grass clippings to my big mulch pile Saturday then washed the truck. Even sprayed the tires with ArmorAll. Pretty! Getting real tired of staying home so much, so me and my seat cover took a drive to a park about 10 miles away. Walked around a while and drove back. Nice evening temps, and we both enjoyed riding a while in the old truck.

Hi all - Living in Covid Time...I did a a quick cab sound proofing with Peel and Seal (available at Lowes), 2 rolls at $16 bucks. Reults? Cruising around town, I can actually hear to fine musical subtleties (listening to BTO on my sound system) I never heard while this truck was moving. Of course, like most 50s 3100s, not much can block out wind noise at 60+. Cranking up the volume helps but makes my ears hurt. For BTO it may be worth it though.

I use my ‘57 3200 as a daily driver. Replaced rear turn signal/ brake bulb. Tightened up p.s. belt, tied off some hoses that were part of a/c installation last fall. Tightened up various loose bolts and began investigation of small transmission drip.

I cleaned up around my suburban today. The junk on the floor had encroached almost to the truck!


Another quality post.

Adjusted the idle RPM on the newly installed rebuilt Carter YF. It runs slower now and still starts up easily and stays running without any choke. I’m happy!

This nasty virus we are all alerted to, is keeping me down on the farm in the Texas Hill Country where there is no virus (0nly 8 cases in the Blanco area) at least none on my farm. I wish I had hauled my 51 down here with me; getting lonesome now with nothing to tinker with.

Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

Continued with my 292 rebuild... Crank, rods/pistons, and new cam installed. still waiting on a few parts (new rockers, HEI, in deciding on intake/exhaust) then will be ready to fire up!

Manufactured a long battery pan on my 54 3100, put two heavy six volt deep charge batteries in series. this way all my six volt lights and gauges including generator and starter. This way I can put under dash a/c in. It is Florida after all.


Currently making 1954 3100 better than new and Genetics
