took my first real road trip with Big Red...
drove down from Rochester and looped around Canandaigua lake..
had some stores/customers to visit and some stuff at the cottage to pick up...

Amazing how well this guy drives..  not setting any land speed records, but the power is there.. had no issues going up and down the hills.  Tracked well, stops, and all gauge needles stayed right where they should.

I prob should address some of the cab rust, whack off the insanely heavy running boards, wire wheel and chassis coat the frame...



I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

I guess its nice to have a vehicle that just works with little owner enhancements..
