This was a crazy night, we cruised around in the Cutlass and saw an MGB, and a 65 Chevelle and 59 pro touring wagon at Terry’s... old cars were coming out of the woodwork everywhere.

Thanks!!

Yes the water is very high, we were happy to be on the beach, we were second in line behind the red 1965 Chevelle owners.

Holy-snapen-ole-snap-on-a-vich!!!!

I just looked at the calendar PSMCDR is like 23 days!!!

Oh s#%^*+=

I was going to have trialed drag racing by now and be all prepared.... I will be in the garage.

I looked at local drag strips and we have three that I can find, Grand Bend, St Thomas/Sparta, and Cayuga all are 2 hours away... I may be a virgin at PSMCDR....

So tonight I got in the zone!!

Pulled the drivers seat, sill plate, carpet pulled back, removed the shift hump, and OEM shifter. I installed the Hurst Stret Super Shifter that Al installed back in the day. (First I mocked it up on my rebuilt M20, that saved lots of hassle as I had the reverse arm from another shifter mixed up with this shifter)

It shifts nicely now, I plan to adjust the rods a wee bit so the pin goes through in neutral (it was adjusted perfectly on the M20 but needs a touch up on the M22Z, I was so eager to take a test drive I couldn’t wait to set it up again... also I had crawled under, over, under, until I could barely get off the concrete floor.

Drives so much nicer now!!!

I don’t really like where the shifter handle places the T handle so I will soon fit an extra H 442 handle to this shifter and bend, shorten, as needed to get it where it feels right.

Love the shifter!! Al was right to put this one in the car.

PSMCDR Prep!!

I Worked away on the Cutlass today.
Changed the oil,
Started adding gauges (oil pressure installed),
I set up the shifter (in neutral the pin goes through easy),
Pulled the driveshaft for a final fitting of the driveshaft loop (that is a hell of a job in the driveway) now I can weld up the DS loop as it finally fits!!!!,
Replaced the T handle with the original push down for reverse ball (I like it better)
Started figuring out what to do with the Red H boot..... and a few other odds and sods.

Al and Leslie Corporon visited yesterday, we took a cruise in my car, then went to dinner in their 70 Skylark, great friends, great visit, great cruises!!

I cleaned up the Cutlass and made a Wedding drive playlist. A friends daughter is getting married today and I was asked to drive the bride and her two bridesmaids from the parents house to the wedding venue.

I am stoked, to me this is as fun as a basket of kittens!!!

Thanks for the great evening Ryan. Enjoyed our visit and dinner with Amy and yourself.

Appreciate the ride in your car. You have come full circle. Our cars are exact opposites.
Experiencing them with others. Priceless.
