    Me and the Meadowbrook

    October 30th Our Buick is a good car, but has zero class. Which one catches your eye first?

    October 30th Funny how my phone's awesome camera makes the paint on my car look really good when it's really not.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    October 30th: Gave my son a driving lesson again. Like I've said before, what better way to learn a clutch than with fluid Drive! I sat right next to him and did the accelerator and the brake. He took the emergency brake off, operated the clutch, put it into gear, and steered the car. What a great father-son moment!

    Heater Control Valve

    Unless you're dead set on having an original, just get an after-market one. the one on my 51 Dodge is for a late model Toyota pickup. Works just fine. Do a search, I know there's information on this forum about those.

    Electronic ignition again

    It's good to hear everyone's opinions. For me, I've had quite a number of bad points over the years on different cars. Even a few that were brand new and bad off the shelf. I've had my Pertronix kit (6V) in the Meadowbrook since May 2017 with no issues. Around 8K on the engine rebuild and kit.

    October 10: Drove into town for some dinner and to grab a few things at the market. Weather turned windy and cold. The heater did not fail us. Don't the other cars just look silly in the background?

    Sept. 30: Drove the Meadowbrook into town with the kids to pick up a few things at the market. My daughter took these photos. I averaged about 40 mph because of all the deer. Heater...on!

    46 dodge oil pressure

    Mine runs those very numbers and it was rebuilt 7K miles ago. Runs perfect. Don't sweat it!

    Keith, we have in-floor heat and love it. We keep the house at 75 degrees... no way I'm busting my butt making all this wood and then allow myself to freeze on top of that. Greg g, I'd be too embarrassed to show you my wood pile, I can't stack worth it damn!

    Sept. 26: Drove the Meadowbrook to work this morning. It was a chilly 45 degrees. The heater worked great! I didn't even need the fan to stay warm. What a beautiful fall day! A guy approached me when I was on lunch getting some food at a gas station and asked me about the car. He said his dad just bought a 1940 Dodge with suicide doors for $6,000.

    Picked up a brand new Brave wood splitter last week. It's a 30-ton model. It will split wood in the vertical position as well. Honda engine. Now I don't have to swing the axe anymore. Towed it home with the EcoDiesel.

    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.
