One more thing out of the way
Took the battery out of the Vette and gave her a fresh one. She is purring again. Threw the new plates on as well so she is good to go. Take her out for a romp tomorrow. I don't understand why batteries don't last as long as they use to. I am on my third in my Ford. Only get about three years, and they are shot. The first two were Ford batteries (the original and one factory replacement). I replaced it again in the fall as it was getting weak. Have an Interstate in it now. See how that fares. The Vette eats one about every third year. Battery just won't keep a charge. They were all diehards. Seems like the batteries use to last several years easy. Silly design on the Vette makes you remove a sidepanel and mudguard to get at the battery. Should be good for a couple years now anyway. Find out tomorrow if it's a two day weekend or one. One way is more money, the other, a little relaxation. Kinda hopin on the relaxation. Like to finish trimming the fireplace and do a little reorganizing of the garage now that the car is mobile again.
