Beautiful Weekend! w/pics

Was almost 50 degrees this weekend! It was awsome. I gave the Wag a bath and did a little cruisin'. Crappy cell phone pics...
At the hardware store after the bath

And the fleet, my '79 Wag and my '97 Grand Marquis:

Nice pics! Glad to hear you had a good weekend

I shared a shop with some ricer fellas which was good for a laugh, my friend blew out the yoke on his XJ so I drove to Connecticut to pick him& the Jeep up and damaged my QT chain then had a major electrical gremlin. I wanna push the Jeep off a cliff but I love that thing way too much

It was an awesome day here too! Got to spend the afternoon at a clients house on Lake Michigan. The ice shelf has started melting and pieces were breaking off and falling in - making a huge racket. Then I went and hunkered down in the office again.

You have a hood bar for that thing?

I'm hopefully heading up that way next weekend - you want me to throw my little mig welder in the back and try to fix those? We should have traded hoods - I just welded a couple holes in my hood up were the bar was last fall!

Had a pretty good weekend myself. Saw 300 on Saturday, decent movie but I like the History channel comparison better. If you like action and gore then the movie is awsome.

I spend 3 hours fishing early this morning, watched the sun come over the lake, the ducks start to wake up and never caught a thing, perfect fishing trip. Then I finished the oil pan gasket on my waggy and went to a buddies house and made some fishing pole hangers to put on the ceiling of the waggy. Good productive day. I'll post pics of the hangers when they're done and mounted.

sorry man, maybe my jeep sneezed on yours and you caught what mine got! except i had problems with my QT before i towed the XJ for a bud. but i ended up with electrical gremlins too.

i'm not to the point of pushing the jeep off a cliff, but i am going back to driving my truck and parking the heep for a while.

Oh man I had a great weekend. Finished an overhaul and cranked the beast over. It was 85F with a lovely ocean breeze at my place in Beautiful Vista, CA...the Climatic Wonderland (or so they claim!)

First thing Sat morning,I picked up an'88 GW I won on ebay,got it for$405.It was only 34 miles away,I couldn't resist!I have to redo all the vaccum lines,as it had a fire under the hood,the PO replaced the harness&carb,but it don't run right without vac lines.Sunday I went to the Autorama in Detriot,saw alot of awesome rides,I love them rat rods!Came home & figured out I had a shorted tail light wire on my'79 chief.

Ok weekend, got a stack of work done: weather was too horrible to contemplate Jeep work or gardening.
