Re: Sharon Center parade

I should have told you Dad to go watch the parade. He lives off of 22 by Orange Ave. in Kalona. What did you drive Dean?

Re: Some reassembly required

Did you rebuild your engine? Are you driving your 15 or your 23?

Re: Who stores their car with the top up?

I keep the top up, my doors are eight feet. Also one is a coupe so there is no top to fold down.

Re: Grease cup: OK to shorten the post?

Be careful about how much grease you pump in. You do not want to pump grease through the rear main into your oil pan and transmission. The grease will not act well with the bands. The cup puts in a measured amount of grease.
