Good show Wayne. You da man. Makes me want to sell my 37........almost!!!
Alvin, I spoke to the seller of the 37. He had a reserve of 42K. He also said the values have been coming down recently, so he decided to let it go.
When I die, I hope she doesn't sell everything for what I told her I paid for it!

Over the past 6 weeks I have driven my 51 3100 from the mountain of North Carolina to the coast and back 4 times. 700 miles round trip. The overdrive trans and tri-five rear end make for 70-80 mph cruises.

Made the trek into town for breakfast in the ‘62 C-10 Sunday morning. My buddy was there with his ‘72 Nova and another couple drove their ‘67 C-10. After breakfast we drove around the local lake and golf course then downtown. Counted over 20 vacant buildings. COVID has really hurt the small businesses, not just those downtown.

Took my 49 out to church this morning (about 21 miles round trip) then in the afternoon for a 40 mile round trip to our cabin at the local lake. I just finished a 4.3 TBI/T5 swap and couldn't be happier. Even pulling 15 MPG with still a few minor issues to resolve (like the TPS sensor is reporting a very narrow voltage range, so it's toast meaning I'm not getting full efficiency). Everything else is original, and just fine for my purposes. Max speed on any of the roads I need to drive is 50 MPH so... lots of smiles and waves. I do need new tires - with the original drivetrain I couldn't tell, but the new drivetrain is much quieter and the tires I'm running are clearly rubbing on the fenders. So I better resolve that.
I have to say the vacuum wipers work a lot more energetically with the 4.3 as well. I love it.
