Happy New Year to all. Early to bed as well, I was up early in the bright sunshine going through a stack of cylinder heads in a shed and man were they cold. Warming by the woodstove with the grandkids and listening to old country on the ipod. Looks like a good year coming up for sure. You guys have been a ton of help this past year with parts and advice and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

The coupe fired right up at 24 degrees (very cold for Williamsburg VA) for the trip to the grocery store to get the pork roast, sour kraut and black eyed peas for New Years Day dinner. Good omen for 2018.

Will need many such good omens for the planned drive across the country to Carson City NV to visit my brother. He is also an old car nut. He completely restored our Grandfather's 1932 B Model stake body farm truck. He also has a '46 coupe. If I can beat him in a drag race, maybe he will replace the SBC with the flathead that belongs in that car. With the 3.25 rear end gears I am running, I would probably have a better chance against his Model T. Great for cruising; not so hot for drag racing!

Thanks to all on this forum for all the help in getting my coupe ready for the open road adventure. Happy New Year!

Just returned from a road trip to California from Virginia via Route 40. Stopped at quite a few Route 66 places including several museums and old original motels and restaurants.
Happy New year to all.
