Time for another update when I got to Nashville I had a right rear wheel bearing go bad.
Thanks to the help of the H.A.M.B and a corvair club members list I found Richard Gebhardt in Nashville and he guided me on how to replace the axle in the van. The axle I had with me wound up having a bad bearing on it, and then two of the three axles Richard had wound up being bad also......I can now change these things in my sleep lol
Luckily the last one we tried has been quiet for almost 500 miles now so keep your fingers crossed lol.
I found this killer corvair turbo motor in Richards garage think he will miss it?
I then spent the night with my good friend Lucky and we went out to dinner can you believe his son Ethan loves eating onions?
.....any kid that tough gets to sign the van s the youngest signature is now from a two year old lol
Then I headed the short little trip from hendersonville to Bowling green for a short stop at the hot rod reunion
I found the mooneyes booth and scored these for the van
My choice for sexiest car of the show
I found another bike I wanted to stick in the van
I drove around and found a familiar face and parked next to them. If all goes well I am going to shoot some pics for Ken while I am in SC
another bike I want to steal
I left bowling green sad as all get out to head to Indy, but my friends tried to make me feel at home
then thirty of us went for Japanese
went to the Suds cruise night in Indy and it was a blast. This is the car that was worth the drive from Texas
ok seriously there was some bitchin stuff there
It was cool hanging out with Jake again and his gorgeous 54
You may remember it more from this pic we took at Columbus last year
The van is becoming a trophy whore
We didnt get the furthest distance to the show even though we had driven 2400 miles to that point someone from Savannah Ga got it instead......but who cares I am having a blast.
