On The Road With The 39

Not too far though. The old flathead still does not run on all 8 cylinders all the time.  The old Ford is pretty cantankerous about starting at times too when it gets warmed up. Probably a weak ignition coil. Of course the optional one gallon fuel tank would not allow for long drives either. Plus that whole having no brakes thing. So the half mile driveway will suffice for now. Sometimes I feel like "Toad of Toad Hall" messing about with old cars and trucks when I should be working. With the dismal cold and wet forecast for the coming week I wanted to get some video of the car in action this morning on what might be the last sunny day for a week.
I see John Dillinger liked Fords too. Interesting story.
Meanwhile the lazy farmer is out standing in his field with an overheating tractor and day time temperatures of 90 degrees.

  1. Nice video, reminds me of the many projects that I would like to finish. We are combining flax. Yield is half of what seed company rep says it we can expect. Which means I was right in my prediction...
    We are going to bale the straw and a dairy is going to buy it. Not a lot of money but better than burning.
