  • Bettys First long Trip.

    Today I drove Betty to work and was really amazed. I live 25 Miles away from the dealership I work at. On the way to work, got several thumbs up, a few people rolled down windows at stoplights to comment on how nice the car is. When I pulled into the dealership, Everyone dropped what they were doing to come out and see ol Betty. It sure felt good to hear all the compliments knowing I definitely saved the car from becoming a parts vehicle. Now that its on the road and running, I will take some pictures of her.

        Bob--

        Looking forward to seeing the pix! My '62 is also named "Betty" (a long story)...I've got to wait until winter quits before going anywhere in my Lark, she's hibernating in a barn south of town until probably mid- to late-April. (It's snowing like mad here right now.) So I'll view your posted roadtrip pix enviously!

        Cheers

            Always good to read a success story. My 62 is a long way from any 25 mile trips, but I keep plugging along. We are supposed to have good weather coming and I hope to fix the bleeder screw that broke off the last time I worked on it. Then I can finish bleeding the system and maybe move it under its own power without having to hold my breath and hope it doesn't jump the stops.

                Excellent![8D] This is the good stuff I like to read about... Reaffirms an earlier post that "driving" is where it's at.
