1950 Chevy Coupe

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I got the flatbed mounted on truck. Hooked up all the wiring for the lights. The last week I finished putting all of the interior back inside the cab. Also reinstalled the new wiring harness & got everthing connected & working. I also installed all the glass except for the windshield(this week task). Almost ready for the road, waiting on the seat to get back from the upholster shop.

Well today was the day I finished everything on the 1948 GMC
truck & took it for a drive. The only thing I would like to replace now is the front bumper & splash apron. It has been a busy last few weeks getting her done but I'm glad so Now I can drive her. I also now can focus on the 1953 chevy

Until next time.........

Well I took the 1948 for a drive to Heppner(20miles). Made it there but the carb was flooded was able to get it going again made it home & changed out the old barb with a new one I had on the shelve also change out the spark plugs, plug wires & cap/rotor. Runs much better now & didn't flooding out. Will be going to Heppner again today with it to make sure all the bugs are out of it before I make a longer trip.....

Well since my last post Ive had a tire blow(self inflicting) & fuel pump sprung a leak. Found a tire replacement thanks to
T-RUCK & hawgsteak for their donations. I have several extras just in case. As for the fuel pump I haven't fixed it yet but thinking I better get to it soon. Until next time...

Pulled the truck out of the barn this morning & gave her a bath from all that winter dirt. Getting her checked out for the St. Patricks parade in Heppner this month.

Change out the fuel pump this weekend. I had forgotten all about it when I parked it in the barn last fall....old age setting in.
Well I think she is ready for a road trip or two
