Out crusin' on July 06, 2010 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email Other Apps Yesterday afternoon the sun came out and the shop doors opened and the time had come to take a test drive.I smiled as I documented the speedometer registering at 2.8 miles.It is amazing how many times I hopped in the Merc for a "quick" drive from the shop to the bungalow. . and back. The first stop was at the fuel station.Normally. . .I sit in my seat, minding my own business. . but this time, I hopped out to .. document the first gas fill. I recorded it of course. . because fourteen years from now when the lil' farm hand wants to borrow Grampa's keys. . we'll be telling him stories about how cheap gasoline was back in the day. :)We kept to the country roads. We went home for supper in between.I rushed to warm up some leftovers and. . .when neither of us could stand it anymore. . we took her out again. I tried to load a video .. to no avail.Maybe blogger will be in a more cooperative mood later and I'll give it another whirl. All for now . . With love, 1950 Mercury Truck Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email Other Apps Comments PegJuly 06, 2010 7:38 AMWhat a great day for the two of you - all that work has certainly paid off, she's beautiful!ReplyDeletePondsideJuly 06, 2010 7:54 AMWhat fun!
