I hadn't driven it in almost a month, so I decided to take it to the grocery store today. I have to say, this car has a really good heater.

That's really nice. None of my forwardlook cars have good heaters. Some might, but I have been too afraid to hook them up to try them.

Not an option up here in the "GREAT WHITE NORTH"
My car is parked until spring. Maybe I'll go over the heating system next year. I do remember as a kid it seemed to work OK... in 1975...

I delivered my '71 to the paint shop today which freed up a garage slot for the wagon. Before parking it in the garage, I decided to take a drive around the neighborhood. That backfired as the fuel line clogged. I changed the fuel filter on the side of the road and it restarted. Since it was running again, I drove past my house to make one more circuit. Of course, as soon as I created the hill it died again. Some helpful folks gave me enough of a push to coast home and I pushed it into the garage. I'll blow out the fuel line tomorrow.

Today, I worked on replacing the window whiskers and window channels. Long, long overdue.

I finally got around to swapping the parking brake band. Now I should be able to park on an incline.

I still have to get it adjusted. There are no instructions in the service manual for replacement of the band, but there are instructions for adjusting it. It's supposed to be 65 degrees on Saturday, so I will probably get to it then.

Today, I took advantage of freakishly warm weather and adjusted the band as best I could. I'll give it a few miles of driving around to kind of bed it in before I climb under and recheck the adjustments. I found that my fuel line was not clogged and that I'd made the mistake of believing a 65-year-old fuel gauge and was simply out of gas. So, I dumped a couple of gallons in it from the mower can and drove it to the gas station. Unfortunately, I've now lost my gas cap.

A couple of my cars has fooled me like that too. Seems to be one of their favorite pranks.
