Went to drive the 37 to work today and the battery was almost dead,had it running a few weeks ago and was fine so I think that cheap and over 10 year old battery has about had it so going to replace it.

Drove the ‘62 C-10 into town for breakfast this morning. Temp was @55* and the sun was just beginning to peak above the horizon. Beautiful Oklahoma morning. Visited with the usual crowd and drove back to the ranch. Oklahoma has lifted the COVID restrictions so there were a lot more people out and about.

Drove the 37 for the first time this year after installing a new battery,the old battery was almost 8 years old so even though it took a charge it got replaced.

8 year old battery. You got your money's worth out of that one. Battery's are normally good for about 5 years. At least that's all I've ever gotten.

A 6v Optima ("AGM" (Absorbent Glass Matt batteries [northeastbattery.com]) has been on my Suburban since 2006. They are not cheap $199+ shipping (or, Walmart or local auto parts stores can order them). I think I got it for around $100.

Keep it well-charged; or, if it loses charge, charge it as directed (see instructions at the link, below):
how to charge a discharged/dead AGM (Optima) battery [help.summitracing.com] - use a second 6v or 12v battery, as appropriate.

Or, get an AGM battery charger or battery "tender/minder".

That 6v battery fits in the original 47-55st battery-box, by laying it on a diagonal in the box. Carefully put on the original-style/size battery "holder/cover". I put on felt battery-posts rings over the posts the cover/hold-down edges ($2.00 at Advance Auto, etc [shop.advanceautoparts.com]. No shorts - no problems.

Drove Ms Kathy to breakfast at the local Braum’s in the ‘62 C-10. Took the opportunity after breakfast to drive around town a bit. Lots of new construction going on. Town is growing into a bedroom community for OKC which means more businesses coming to town. The usual amount of thumbs up and horn honks from those folks out and about.

Drove the ‘62 C-10 up to fill up with gas and stop by TSC for 5qts of 30wt oil for Clarence (‘39 Dodge Business Coupe). Getting ready for tomorrow’s closed Route 66 cruise in conjunction with our Smalltown Weekend Car Show.

When we take the truck back to Texas next year, we plan to drive what parts of Route 66 we can on our way back. We'll shoot north somewhere out of east Texas, then head west and see some sights we haven't seen before.
