I cleaned road grime from the rain storms on the way home from the Eastern Meet. The whole car was covered. I also installed one of the Morris Concepts seat belts for the test run.

ditto not today but last night, man what a mess. Taking it into work Saturday morning to put on a lift and do the underside, that should be an all day'er. Sounds like I lucked out leaving as early as I did, beat out some really bad storms. I had 200 miles of rain on & off with some really hard rain at times but no tornadoes, trees down , hail or closed highways. Seems like I got out when the gettin' was good

That's a great way to begin and end your day Aaron. smile
Timing is everything Cory....glad all of you made it home safe from the EM.
Cheers,
Larry

My late Uncle's 1971 Monte Carlo SS...

1 of 1919 produced, 1 of 147 produced
in Canada, 1 of 6 black on black produced
in Canada and 1 of 2 black on black with
buckets and console produced in Canada.

Lost in 1978 and Found in 2011.
The sorrow of what was once lost,
Is surpassed by the joy of it found.
What fuels us to persist in the search,
Are the memories that we hold dear.

I miss you Ron.

Thanks, sorry I can't make it up to Oregon this year, hopefully next year. I'm on the schedule for a trans rebuild, new windshield and some minor interior work. Pics forthcoming.

Finished installing the Morris 3 point front seat belts this morning. Then took her to a cruise I put on every year for the local school music program. Even had another FG Monte there....Mr. Peters and his grandson showed up. Had a good day!
