    Same with you! Getting older bites, but it beats the alternative!!!

    Look what Rick did with his Duster at B3R -- as if the old Fastest Streetcar motor was not enough The new set-up laid down 1,500 at the tire. Dayum!

    And the new bodywork and paint look amazing.

    Bummer - a week after the ac was recharged it is blowing warm again. There must be a good size leak since it was blowing ice cold less than seven days ago. Since there is dye in it, it should be easy to find.

    Time to go back in the shop, the older I get the more I need AC

    The Air conditioning is my Aspens best asset. It's still R12 and it'll freeze me out!

    I could use that here today - it is going to be another hot one.

    I let the shop know about the AC and they told me to bring the car in next week.

    Twenty or thirty years ago I probably wouldn't have cared either way but now,,,,,,,glad I made the decision to make the A/C on my Aspen operational. It takes up a LOT of space under the hood and adds weight but would have a hard time living without it. Another one of those getting older things I guess. Then again (to show my priorities), the shop has A/C, the house doesn't.

    Lol! There's nothing like the wind in your hair and the air vents cooling your legs! Most of my nice cars and even my parts cars dragged up here from the south, have AC and loads of options. And I'll admit I do enjoy these well appointed cars purchased new by "adults" greatly. There isn't much that sucks worse than 14hrs on the road without Cruise! But for me the cars barely optioned above A66 will always most fulfill my nostalgia. My memories don't come from an ability or even a desire to buy an F-body new. I was nine when they started making them. I thought they were cool, but back then I spent my days finessing Mustangs, and hating on the pIle of Corvettes wrapped around the shop that I had to get done. Admiring that crazy Ron Hansard with his equally crazy Superbird that had nothing but a Serious engine. Mark Fisher with his MAF 69 383 4spd Bee. Triple green with the only option being the white acents in the green interior that matched the Rump Stripe, Perfectly! Once I was old enough to drive, the endless string of $250 low option R/T's and Road Runners that I'd run the last leg out from under were where I earned my own stripes. Earned on days when the air and header heat was so intense that I gave up responsibility to just get out of town and hit those back roads with the vents shoving that air on me at speeds well above the speedometer's ability to read. Yeah we take all those options for granted today as they're now standard equipment. But when I get in one of my old cars I gota say that sometimes it's just nice to have that little bit of discomfort pushing me to be that younger self that didn't have such comforts. The cars that push those memories are a lot fewer further between today. I am guilty of reducing the local number to nearly zero. But if I hadn't those same cars would have found their way to the crushers without a last hoorah and so much being salvaged. So I hear you on the options we enjoy so much as we are now also adults. But I'm always going to love those fewer remaining low option cars the most.
