Dad and I left New Melle about 6am, heading over to meet up with Dale West, over in Highland, IL. It was fun to make the run with Dale. We sure got a lot of waves and nods of appreciation from the cars and trucks that passed us.
The flathead did great, but it ran a bit warm. We were also running a bit faster than I normally drive the truck. We borrowed an infrared thermometer so we could keep an eye on the engine temps.
Didn’t take a lot of pictures, but the deuce phaeton was the car I wish. could have followed me home! I’d love to have one!
Roughly 875 mile round trip. The biggest issue that I ran into is the fact that I still need to clean out my tank, so we had to stop a few times and blow crud back out of the fuel line.
The FUN is in the RUN!!!
The smile on Dale’s face says it all. The FUN is in the RUN!!!
