This is what comes with owning and daily driving a classic car. Its definitely not for everyone. Had to tow the Catalina home the other day because the power wire to the coil was corroded and finally gave out. Redid the wire end and it's good to go now! #rustbucket#64#pontiac#poncho#catalina#oldschool
Little repair job I done yesterday on this fan housing.
Cut out the rusty sections and replace with new 4mm steel. 15 of the 16 bolts sheared off whilst trying to remove them. So I drilled them out and put some m8 threaded inserts in instead. 👨🏻🏭 #rustbucket#migwelding#sheetmetal#rydowmobileweldingltd

I remember a time when a friend of mine, @tjgalmut drove out to see me in Canmore, AB. While he was driving his 92’ Hilux Surf through Revelstoke, BC he discovered one of his wheel rear bearings was failing. As it was a weekend and he was far from any shop he decided to continue on to see me. We had a great weekend exploring Canmore and the surrounding area, then he drove all the way home on the failing wheel bearing. He messaged me a few days later and showed me pictures of his ovalized axle shaft and destroyed bearing.
This made me paranoid about wheel bearings. I’ve since had two runs-ins with bad wheel bearings. One time in Phoenix, AZ when I spent far too many of my hard earned dollars having a mechanic I didn’t know replace the wheel bearing on my Tacoma. And the second has been recently on Thomas. The bearing I pulled out yesterday should have been replaced at the beginning of the summer and had begun to work its way through the outer seals and on to more damage.
Moral of the story, if you hear/feel a humming while driving down the road. Do yourself a favour, check it out, get it fixed.
#seattle ... Pike St. ... Being from South Dakota, and never having travelled to an actual big city before, I was terrified of all of the traffic. I’ve always had a fear of new places. But, I believe in facing my fears. Spending a night in Seattle, walking from the hotel to the Space Needle was a big thing for me - because I did it. Me! I accomplished something I never thought I’d get to do. It was a road trip. To see the ocean for the first time in my life. #anxiety was through the roof. But, I did it. Nine days of driving and seeing places I may never see again. #willienelson just came to mind. #washingtonstate is absolutely beautiful! I hope to go back again someday. Also, I drove my old faithful car. A 2003 PT Cruiser. People thought I shouldn’t take it on such a long trip, so far from home. Well, it did perfectly fine. Since then, I’ve taken my Cruiser on every road trip - no matter how far. #roadtrip#facingfears#goodtimes#pikestreet#ehlersdanlossyndrome#nevergiveup#travelamerica#crosscountryroadtrip#firsttime#explore#ptcruiser#ptcruisers#rustbucket
