    Me and the Meadowbrook

    Hey fellas got my car running again (it was a faulty fuel pump) and I wanted to start a new thread and leave my engine rebuild thread as something separate. In this thread I'm going to post pics of me and my family's trips/shows/gatherings and anything else fun that we do with the car. Tonight we went out for a cruise over to a neighboring town. It was sunny and 70s here today with hardly a cloud. Perfect evening for a drive. Mostly I drove just 40mph because that's what felt good Its so much fun to drive the old Dodge; our new cars simply have no soul. There's a bunch of shows and gatherings coming up soon around here, we hope to hit all of them. Here's some pics from today: I guess only the first pic is from us being out and about. The other 3 are when we got back home LOL. The back roads around here are really fun, but you have to watch out for deer!

    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!

    Ecodiesel Files

    I’ve never had a nice truck in my life. Many capable and enjoyable ones, but never a nice one. So I picked up this 2018 Ram 1500 crewcab with the 240HP Ecodiesel. Man...what an awesome truck guys. I absolutely love it! Anyone else here have one with an Ecodiesel?

    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.

    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: I thought this 52 Plymouth was nice.

    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!

    Sept. 7: Well I spent a couple of hours messing around with the fuel line. I had to take the threaded flange off the old line and put it on the new. Easier said than done, but I got it. After making some Frankenstein bends, I got the line situated okay. Just hope nobody looks under my car and asks me what the hell THAT is! LOL Put some gas in the tank from a couple of cans...about 2+ gallons I estimated. The tank was completely empty. Then my son and I drove into town and I filled her up with premium. 12.7 gallons is what I ended up with. So I'm thinking the tank is 15 gal, not 18 like I thought it was. Anyway, no leaks, car ran good, heater works good. Mississippi Mayhem, here we come! Happy to have the car going again. Can't wait to drive it tomorrow. Hope to take a lot of pics for you guys and fill you in on the action. Stay tuned.... http://www.mississippimayhem.com/

    Sept. 6: I was gonna head into town for a test drive and some gas. I ran out of fuel while idling in the driveway. It was a good thing. I tackled that leaky fuel line without having to drain anything from the tank. I’ll put on a new piece of line tomorrow (coming out of the tank) and be ready for Mississippi Mayhem this Saturday.
