I whizzed past an orange 55 (I think) stalled on the on-ramp of I-95 in Palm Beach County this evening on my way home from work....sure wish I could've stopped to help. Seems like I left a brother, a friend, a pal, a bud, stranded and all I could do is drive by without stopping. What an inconsiderate person I am!

I'm just hoping he got going again without too much trouble.

I missed an opportunity to help a fellow hobbyist and also missed the chance to meet another hobbyist.....

That's funny, Otis, I was thinking about the same thing! Sure would be nice to get 'er outta the garage!

I can actually get mine started and back it out, but right now I have no brakes and my driveway is a hill down to the street so I'd rather wait until I finish the brake job before getting it out again! Maybe this weekend!

You are so right! Need to jack up the rear, pull the wheels and drums, and replace all the brake parts. Hopefully I won't need to run to the parts store too many times. Bleed the brakes and I'm done!

Got the wheels and drums off, now I have to watch college game day followed by about 10 hours of football games!

I should be able to finish this brake job today (doubtful) or tomorrow (likely)!

Then I'll be where I was hoping to be about a week ago - not too late!

BTW Terry, you COULD come over and do it for me, I could cook up some good brats and potato salad! :)

One of the many nice things about Florida is that you can fire up the grill all year and have a brat party any time! In Wisco you're either grilling in the snow or you have to restrict that activity for the warmer months! My 57 was built in Wisco, I was built in Wisco, but we're living the good life in the Sunshine State! :)

The gators are a bit west of me, there doesn't seem to be much of a gator problem around here (I'm pretty close to the ocean). We do have lots and lots of sand on the beach, though!:)

I laid on a lawn to fix my car around Jacksonville and got ate up by the sand fleas. I remeber seeing the gators around once in a while. I used to spend my free time in Sanderson and McClenny area. Had some good folks there that were very special to me.
