Dragged this outta the weeds where it had been sitting for a couple of years.
Cleaned it and chucked some new gas in it and a battery. Started it up no drama and took it for a short run up the road.
Had forgotten what a laugh it is to drive. But the tyres had turned to plastic so behaved like a drunken monkey. Got some tyres onto a set of wheels I’d had hanging around for a few years but was too weary of them rubbing to use before, but thought fuck it, they’ll do for a hoon down to Leadfoot in Feb.
And they do rub but meh.
Then it sprang a leak in the radiator. Bugger.
But if that’s the worst thing that happens I’ll call it a win.
Got a renewed interest in it so as soon as I get the shed built I’ll rip it to bits and rebuild it to fix all the things I rushed or don’t like about it.
