I had cherry bombs on my 78 Blazer. Probably why I have tinitis now… That or the heavy metal music… or playing in a band for 10 years…. or working in a factory for 30 years….October 14, 2018 at 10:33 pm #207320
well, i should have safety in hand wednesday or thursday. so very possibly tagged by the weekend. here’s to hopin’!!October 15, 2018 at 3:49 pm #2073234307Keymaster
Cherry Bomb offers different degrees of loud. I’m aiming for the low loud when the time comes.
Hope the safety goes well for you Mark.October 19, 2018 at 9:16 pm #207334
Did she pass? Are you legal yet?October 20, 2018 at 1:58 pm #207338

Soo close now Mark. Great work so far.
Can’t wait to see the new wheels mounted up.October 27, 2018 at 8:09 am #207370
yeehaaww! plates were purchased late thursday. work n women have gotten in the way, so they’ll be installed this morning. then go for a back roads tour around here. will try to get some pics postedOctober 27, 2018 at 9:45 am #207371
Congrats Mark! Got’er finished up just in time for spirited winter driving season. Enjoy the Maiden Voyage!October 27, 2018 at 1:50 pm #207372

finn’s knarr slipped her moorings about 10:30 this morning into a rain soaked voyage. i ran the snowblind tour roads around woodstock. so it was a good mix of pavement n dirt. yeah, no pics, i didn’t feel like gettin’ wet.
one hole in the hull,driver’s window stuck down about 2″. no biggie. gotta source a window winder upper. has an intermittent miss at idle but get on the loud peddle n she pulls as you would expect a 22re to pull with 285’s on the ends of the axles. i’d suspect with fresh plugs n such that would go away. speaking of 285’s, gotta love 4:88 gears. i can’t remember the last time i used o/d with a 22re powered truck on anything bigger ‘an 31’s… yeah baby!!!!
she holds 100kph nicely but definitely not a 400 series super slab runner. i’m ok with that as the back roads have been calling my name in the past few years
yeah, you can say i’m pleased with the 340k, just under 2200 spent little beast of burden. now to start pickin’ away the little $h!tOctober 28, 2018 at 11:02 am #207380
Sweet! I didn’t see you pull out, but I was at work all morning. Then had a 3 hour nap in the afternoon – what a way to waste a rainy day….
If you want, I can take a look at the window regulator to see if I can re-align the teeth to make it go all the way up.November 4, 2018 at 4:17 pm #207399
steve, that’d be great if ya could give me a hand with that. i’ll be in touch
