    Jan. 29 get-together

    We've scheduled a get-together in the Mandeville/Covington area for Sunday, Jan. 29 starting at 10am. We will be doing torsion bar adjustments on at least one car, plus an evaporator replacement (and whatever else we have time for)!

    I will bring my camera so watch this space for pictures.

    Sure thing, Leroy! I will re-send the information and add you to the e-mail group.

    Two days to go! Is everybody excited yet?

    Leroy can't make it, but it looks like we will have six owners in attendance. I intend to bring my camera and tripod so that we can, at Leroy's request, video-record a torsion bar adjustment. Most folks will be showing up around 10-11am, one won't be able to make it until 1pm, and one (me) will have to leave around 2pm.

    See y'all Sunday!

    Well, as it turns out, the band I'm in is rehearsing at 3pm tomorrow, so we will not be replacing my evaporator. We will, however, be able to adjust the torsion bars on my car, and a few other odds and ends for the others as well. I think there's at least one owner replacing his dome light.....

    My car must have really wanted to go to and get its doors fixed today, because I just went outside to try to move it, and it won't idle at all. One push of the gas pedal, and it died and won't re-start.

    Anyway, I got a few pictures and will put them on the GCD website soon. The torsion bar adjustment videos (part 1 and 2) are HUGE and will take me a long time to edit here on my slow computer. But I do plan on putting them on YouTube as soon as I can.

    Thanks everybody for helping us set an attendance record! I hope you all enjoyed some Cheerwine!

    Best,
    Farrar
