On the way home the car was breaking up when I got on it. I'm going to try to take it to the show in Hull next week, guess that means I have to take the car out today and see what's going on with it. I usually go to about three cruises a week but just not much motivation for cars this summer, got a lot of work to do on my house this year.
That happened to us a couple of years ago . We drove all the way down to RI for a show and couldn't find the place it was supposed to be at . So we asked a cop if he knew were the place was and he said it was on the other end of town and he asked why . We told him that there was supposed to be a car show there today . He said that he hadn't herd of any shows there but to follow him and he'd lead the way for us . So here we go cruising threw RI with a police escort and we get there and they had canceled it without telling anyone . At least we got a police escort . lol ...... That's a bummer about your car . I know first hand , when your car is running right it sounds like a Mopar should , "MEAN !" . What do you think it is , ignition or carb ?
Wow, police escort, I haven't had that privilege yet. Well not the good kind anyway, lol. The car feels like it's got an ignition miss at cruise. It felt good tonight. I pretty much replaced all the ignition last year. It still has the damn antifreeze dripping on the plugs from the header bolts, that's not helping matters either. I forgot it needs a clutch kit too. I adjusted it today but it looks like the problem is in the pressure plate. I'll go to the speed shop tomorrow morning and see if they can get me something tomorrow or Tuesday. I guess it lived a good life, 21yrs and around 20k mi.
Yah , Normally I have blue lights in back of me not in front of me . lol Your headers are leaking too ? Let me guess , The back two bolts . Same thing on mine . I've resealed then twice now and I still got the lil drip . And mine are a pain in the but to get to . Ones under the booster and the other side has the heater box and dip stick tube right in front of it .

I`ve been fighting a carb issue, 4 speed needs a rebuild, sure-grip is worn out and needs replacing but I just drive it anyway. They were made to drive not sit in the garage! I`ve only doen a couple cruise night so far ut that is only because I`m working second shift so can`t hit any during the week.
I don't even one to talk about carb issues . I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my truck has been running fine in the garage and in the driveway and when I go to take it out for a test drive it wants to die out on me and when I bring it back the idle keeps going up on it's own . I think I finally figured it out . The dam choke when it was warmed up was closing up on it and choking it out . And your 100 % right about these cars . I firmly believe that these cars should be driven and not just sit or be trailered . I'm hoping to hit my first cruise this week . Fingers crossed .
