  • My new 1988 T/A

    As our forum owner has encouraged us to post more, I thought I'd share some information on my T/A. I've documented the few things that I have done with it over at TGO. That link is below.

    This weeks "improvements" including replacing my rotten 29+ year old exhaust system. I posted some details on that here at MIFB. Link below.

    Got into work a few hours early today, so I can leave early and clean, clean, clean to get ready for the Meet & Greet tomorrow. Aside from small local cruise nights, Woodward Ducati, and the Dream Cruise itself, this will be about the closest I've come to entering a car "show".

      Yeah, just racing from one thing to another on the to-do list. Driving me crazy.

      Just helped cement my image as the car guy idiot of the neighborhood. Pulled the car out to hose down the wheels (brake dust) and nose (bugs), and a thunderstorm comes barreling through. So off with the t-shirt and shoes, and finish up in the pouring rain. Was going to use a dustless wash / detailer for the car, but since it's soaked, gave it a bath. Drying in the garage now, and will be out there late going over it inside and out.

        Made it up to the Golling Buick / GMC Lake Orion USMA Charity Cruise (FUNDRAISER FOR ORION VETERANS MEMORIAL AND LOCAL VETERANS). Lots of support from our Pontiac Oakland Club International (POCI) Chapter #16 Michigan Widetrackers.

          Probably one of my worser grammatical and financial decisions since buying the car....placed an order on Saturday.

              Well, they will have to talk to the bank first, as they are the majority owner at this point, Don.

              Two orders from US Cargo Control have arrived. E-track was already at the trailer factory when I placed my order. That was some fast shipping. My straps arrived at the house Monday.

              As I will only have a 1/2 day to get the trailer ready for the trip to the nationals, I'm trying to pre-buy everything, and be ready for an installation blitz. Yesterday was a trip to Harbor Freight for a 5000 pound winch. List $244.99, on sale for $179.99. I had a sale flier which had this for $169.99, but I was able to use the 20% coupon, and got it for $146 or so. No complaints about that. As with any trip there, I couldn't make it out without picking up a few more items...nitrile gloves (coupon), a d-ring shackle (coupon), and a spring loaded center punch for drilling those holes in my brand new trailer and tool box! (coupon). My brother and I already have a bet going on how long I will stand there with the drill in my hand before I start making those holes.
