    Exploring my Meadowbrook

    Yeah it ran good. No real problems. Since it had no compression it got over 20mpg too. Later it suffered from a bad set of points or condenser, or both. But I had the engine rebuilt and a Pertronix kit put in. No problems at all.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    Sept. 21: The weather has finally cooled off here. It will be in the forties tonight. We took the Meadowbrook into town to gas up and then took a cruise out in the country. I opened the valve for the heater about halfway but didn't need the fan at all. Car ran great and it was a fun cruise!

    Exploring my Meadowbrook

    My Meadowbrook engine was burning as much oil as you say yours does. When we took the engine apart 5 of the 6 top rings fell apart in many pieces. Having the engine rebuilt was a blessing. Hope you find the answer.

    Monday Sept. 10: Drove the Meadowbrook to work this morning in the foggy blackness. Had the heater on low the whole way. Stopped at the market on the way home for some groceries. Feels good to be behind the wheel again.

    Sept. 8: I told my wife she wouldn’t see another Meadowbrook. I was right, but later on this guy pulled in with a 51 Coronet with the Gyromatic tranny. He only lives 30 minutes from me, and invited me to his semi-weekly gatherings (for old cars). He had just got that 51 running and welded in some floorboards. The plugs looked like they had been in there for 50 years! Yet that old flathead ran.

    Sept. 8: This old Dodge was kinda cool. It had a full length snap on leather top! Now that’s a convertible. You can see it rolled up most of the way.

    Sept. 8: The woman next to me had a 55 Ford Parklane 2 door wagon her and hubby put together. She was around 70 years old and said they’ve been hot-rodding for 50 years. She did the car’s interior and painted the frame too!

    Sept. 8: This was just a sample of the vintage trailers people towed in and used to camp over the weekend. Must’ve been at least 30 parked. Also, figured you guys would like the vintage motorized bike. They had races for those. Plus a lot of people had the little Honda 50cc bikes they cruised the grounds on.

    Sept. 8: At Mayhem. Car ran great on the way over, no leaks or problems. Drove about 60mph on the interstate. I think there was around 400 cars that made it.

    Sept. 8: Warming up in the driveway. We actually had to use the heater for a bit. On our way to Mississippi Mayhem!
