    Me and the Meadowbrook

    May 21: Drove the Meadowbrook to work this morning not only because my newer cars aren’t reliable, but also because its more fun. Rained all the way home. Had a sock on the dash to catch the water leaking through. 😂 Will seal up the windshield soon. Stopped at the market for a few groceries.

    We and the Windsor 2018

    All the pics are back. Glad you were able to find the problem with the carb/linkage/screw etc. At least we can work on these cars when there's a problem. One of my newer cars the other day started acting up in the worst way. It was shifting really hard, then not at all, speedometer not working, and then finally check engine light came on. It only has 110K. So how do I react to that? I drove something reliable to work instead....my Meadowbrook!!

    Looks good man! I wish you luck on getting it running. Glad you’re going to leave the original paint. 😀

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    May 17: Drove into town for my son’s spring concert at the school. After that to Kwik Trip for a snack and then an evening cruise. It was a great night, 70s, no clouds, no bugs, no wind. I could’ve kept driving all night. Guess I’ll have to drive it to work again tomorrow morning!

    Cooling System Techie Talk

    I’m sure one of the factors was likely yesteryear’s coolant. We all know modern oil is much better than what they had in the 50’s. So the antifreeze probably falls in the same category. I know the coolant in my car is better than, well, yesterday’s coolant let alone anything from decades ago.

    May 16: Took a 30 mile cruise this evening after yard work. Filled up in a neighboring town; averaged just over 16mpg this past tank. Final pic is just before I checked the master cylinder fluid level. Driving it to work again tomorrow!

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    The boss drove his ‘69 Nova to work. It was originally a California car, 307 with a three on the tree, vinyl top and bench seats with cream colored paint. Now it’s a 575 hp 454 five speed with matte black paint, bucket seats and Brembo brakes. He had someone build it for him.

    May 16: Drove the Meadowbrook into work again this morning. The sun was coming up at 4:30am, I had the heater on, and I was the only car on the road for most of my 35 miles. The pic is from right before I left work at 9:45am.
