Out crusin' on July 06, 2010 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest 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 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!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyPondsideJuly 06, 2010 7:54 AMWhat fun!

And I noticed that even the Esso pump looks new -or newly painted - for the occasion.
