It's going good now. It took me a long time to get things back in order. Back on track now.

Yes, I have an all original (except for a very old repaint and missing floor carpet), no body work ever done, 1947 Sixty Special.

 Good to hear from you again Joe!

 That Sixty Special.... It sounds an awful like one another friend of min had a few years back.

I bought it from Gary Porter about 10 days ago. He lives in Kitchener.

 Yep, that's the car! Gary Porter is an old friend. I didn't know he still had that car.

 I drove it once, and what a wonderful ca to drive. But when he got the car, the engine was seized. He freed it up, but it had a lot of blow by. However, the transmission worked very well.

Hey Joe, welcome back. It's good to hear from you.
I'm sure I can say for all of us, you were missed.
Hope to see you soon.
Give me a call, I'm sure you still have my number.

The transmission still works great. There is a little blow by but only noticeable when you stop at a light. I think blow by at idle is typical in old motors. This one is 71 years old, it has a right to smoke. It's certainly not enough to bother me. Definitely not something worth tearing down the entire motor and risking introducing other problems. I've lived with a  cadillac flathead that really did burn oil, I left scent markers and clouds everywhere I went. You'd never know this engine was seized up at one point. It is smooth and quiet, starts easy. Plenty of power.

Thanks Ronnie. I think I do still have your number.

One more thing, how's the classic car swap at bingemans? It's on tomorrow and I am thinking of going to it. I need some peep mirrors. There's another one in Woodstock as well, which is much closer to me.

Try Princess Auto on Barton just east of Parkdale. They have all sorts of odds and ends like that.

 Yes, it drove very nice when I drove it. Quiet and plenty of power. But it sure did smoke from that draft tube. Perhaps running it, changing the oil, loosened up the rings and it's sealing better. It's amazing how well that engine woks with the Hydra-Matic. You've seen both sides of it having the standard shift on your '38 60S.

 Too bad I won't be around tomorrow, I'm working. I'd like to get together with you sometime. Yes, good to have you back!

I have to fix my fuel gauge. I never made it to the swap meet. I ran out of gas.. yes I have a jerry can with gas. But in running out it plugged the fuel filter. Monday, pulling the tank, cleaning it out. Changing the fuel filter.
