Haven’t done a thing

I haven’t touched the car in a couple of months, except for driving it around occasionally.  All my spare time has been devoted to getting my Triumph Spitfire re-painted before winter arrives and it is too cold to paint.

The Ford was very useful during the four days we had no power thanks to Hurricane Sandy.  It had a full tank of gas, and it was very easy to siphon gas out of the tank to keep my generator running.   It is almost impossible to siphon gas out of a modern car- there are too many twists and turns in the filler pipe to allow a siphon hose to actually reach the gas tank.
