Started up Matilda on Saturday for the first time since December. Fired right up and ran great. Went to Lowes and loaded her down with bags of mulch. Right now she has several bags of lawn debris loaded up ready to go to the landfill. Love the looks and waves that I get when people see the truck doing what she was made to do. I do need to watch the winter dirt off her though.

Tim,

Yeah, my old burb is a bit of a time machine from when I got her in '73. Little more rust, few more dents. Same amount of paint more or less.

I put a piece of plywood under the drivers area so my feet wouldn't go through the floor. Still there, same piece.

Kurt

Mine doesn't leak through the floor, it comes through the windshield seal. Not so bad while driving as we can keep our feet out of the drips. But at a stop I get my left leg soaked because of the drip above the clutch pedal. I love adventure.

Daughters coming home from college for a few days during spring break. Her one request while home was to be able to drive the '50 around a little. Looking forward to that. Taught her to drive a standard in this truck, she loves it. cool

First drive of the year. Went to price a job with it. Since I did all the insulation and front rubber mat over this winter, it's way way quieter. It feels so good driving this old truck, still a novelty for me but very enjoyable.

Drive Cecil to the Union hall down south today. About a 70 mile round trip. I love the looks it gets on the interstate during rush hour. The gals at the hall seemed to love it too.

At least the water has a place to run back out! grin

I got a pair of those new Memory Foam shoe inserts. Hasn't helped much- When I walk to another room, I still can't remember why.

I rode out a little over 50 miles one way to a car show... and it was going real well until it rained about half way through.

Met up with a few folks and had some laughs.

Then rode it back home, no problems other than the not so great windshield wipers on my '65 c10.

We drove the burb to the first Parker County Cruisers dinner cruise of the season Friday evening. Skinny's burger joint in Weatherford. Had a real nice visit with fellow club members.
