Drove Gem to the local fruit stand for strawberries.

Forgot to bring a camera so I guess it didn't happen.

Driving my '65 EO vert a bit. A bit ugly and I need to work on the body now - but it runs and drives pretty nice with its newly rebuilt engine.

This doesn't show the Vair in use but shows end result of an issue on the interstate. Heard loud pop/bang, then noise under car. Then about 20 seconds later loud scraping by left front wheel. Got off the interstate and pull onto some grass. Found the item laying in the seat dragging on the ground.

Rest of the story will be in my continuing story of the More Door.

It was worse than loosing a nut. If you noticed, PO put double nuts on the hook bolts. I will be going back with metal lock nuts.

Body loop for hook bolt broke. Looks like metal thinned out. Probably from rusting. Or a loose hook bolt. I never took this tank out in my 2 1/2 years of owning it.

Maiden voyage of our "new" tent trailer. No more sleeping on the groundsmiling smiley! She didn't do too bad but had to down shift near the top of Snoqualmie pass and up Tiger Mountain but I can live with that. Big thanks to Dan Davis for having a 4 speed trans ( mine dropped second gear last sunday) other wise we'd be over here with the water pumper.

A few of us had a 9-11 Memorial Cruise.
The Highlight of the event was a stop at the local Firehall to thank our VFD for their service, and dedication.

Saturday morning 9/12/2020 I visited the Corvair Ranch just in time to see a 1960 Sedan and a 1968 Convertible arrive from New York and get unloaded for service and repairs for their owners.

After leaving the Corvair Ranch in Gettysburg, PA. I ventured Westward to Chambersburg, PA and attended an outdoor gathering of the Mid Maryland Corvair Club where we had a Socially Distance "Safe" Picnic/Meeting. The Arrow show's my car in attendance.grinning smiley
I have successfully put 175 miles on the car since dealing with the cross threaded spark plugs issue noted in another thread earlier in the week. So far, so good.

Went to the Gilmore Car Museum for the "Orphans" themed show on Saturday. Not sure what the Dad is telling the young guy but I'm sure it's good stuff. I'm pretty sure the guy in the foreground is checking out my wife smiling smiley. While I was there I met a guy from Maine who just had a Corvair delivered to his house there. It was fun talking to him and I invited him to join the fourm, hope we see him here soon!
