I see a lot of "gasolene" powered vehicles, not a single Cleveland Steamer.

Fantastic cars ... but even a used Saturn would run rings around one.

Our most recent vehicle acquisition is a Ford Mainline. IV drug use FTW.

Those needing repair:

Alfa Spider (needs a center link tie rod end. I scavenged and repacked one from my parts stash, needs installed)

Dodge Caravan (wife's family truckster and floral delivery vehicle that she wants to roadtrip in this weekend. Broke a bolt in the block removing water pump - did a hamfisted job drilling it out due to limited access. Should be on the road tonight)

1954 Ford (bad radiator - Orr Radiator near KU Med specializes in this sort of stuff but they are slammed until next week. Just ordered an aluminum replacement online under the assumption that the original rad will have a hard time keeping up with the "modern" 302, after planned modifications. Hope it gets here in time to install before Greaserama on Saturday.

The others are the kids' VW Cabrio, the Legacy GT Wagon (my one "responsible" driver) and the Dodge 4x4 pickup.

I probably won't make C and C either. Getting the Ford seaworthy for the fairgrounds is a higher priority. Another time, perhaps.

Aside from a chewing issue that keeps her out of the plastic lined cargo bay of the Subie wagon, our bulldog is a pretty good traveler. She only gets restrained when riding in the package tray of the Alfa, for fear that she would jump out. She loves to put her paws up on the convertible top and peek out at traffic lights. I've met some nice people that way.

I've had a frustrating couple of days, trying to bring three of my little fleet of six back to operational including two that are integral to my plans for one of the best weekends in a long time. During the hottest week of the year, this has left us with only one working vehicle with functioning AC. My frustration is indirectly why I'm going off-topic.

Transverse mounted fwd V6 ... worst configuration ever or worst configuration ever. Discuss...
