Four other fools All 5 have co-pilots lined up They drove out there in about three and a half days Anyway, a few days after their return, the fearless co-pilot decided that he needed to make some quick record of the trip. As the morning ride went along I decided that some of my friends may also want to know ………….
I think that when Dickie Burke first asked me to accompany him in his Ford 3 window coupe on a cross country trip to the L A Roadster show, I was recovering from fairly serious back surgery. As time went along, my physical condition I thought improved enough that I told Dickie yes I would go. I have always tried to be a man of my word. I have always tried to not let my mouth overload my ass, but unfortunately I have failed in that regard in the past and bear the physical, mental, and financial scars to prove it.
So when I told Dickie yes……. I was committed. I mean, years ago I rode horses Heather - Carpenters - Now & Then 11 days from Chama New Mexico to Bolder Colorado just to see how the bad guys lived in the old days. Nothing could be that bad. Could it? I like guys that stick to their word …….
Why did Joe Ordonez run miles Its Not Unusual - Various - The Greatest Hits From England his 50th birthday? And why is Edmund Ruffin riding his bicycle miles today at altitude in Aspen on his 75th birthday?
Happy birthday Ed!! Cause they said they would. I realized that it was Dickie Burke and I realized it was a Ford but what I failed to fully understand was …. With Dickie and I in the front seat there is maybe 3 inches between our shoulders, there is not enough leg room, and when you were in a relaxed seated position, your knees want to Surrender - Brersoul - Surrender Part 1 ……….
Now …. Dickie Burke is an unreal mechanic and he spent untold hours preparing Big Lips - Leon Russell - Life Journey car for its third trip across this country…….
No doubt that it was as good as it could be. Who knows how hot. That is a joke On the road rpm is 65 mph and rpm is 85 ………. So I wanted to look at that. Dickie had to fly all the next week and I talked him into letting me work on some thermal help for the passengers………. So 5 days later I delivered the car to his house with his stainless exhaust system wrapped well, oil changed, new plugs, and the timing set for the engine speed that it would live at.
Now at our age when you think of driving across the country ……. People think of places they want to stop, sites they want to see, stopping at friends Bring It On Down - Various - Los Cuarenta - Cabriolet relatives along the way.
I mean there is lots of neat stuff Хороший Парень - Константин Никольский - MP3 Stereo could do and see ………. Normal people would make plans. So with that in mind, I packed light ……. But for a three week trip. At 6 am on Sunday June 14, we left my house one block from the Atlantic Ocean.
First day 15 hours, Second day 14 hours, third day 13 hours, fourth morning 6 hours ………. A little hiccup was our growing concern over one of the rear tires. I told him what we needed, 45 Chloe x Halle - Drop later he texted us the information directing us to the Coker Group California headquarters in LA Bring It On Down - Various - Los Cuarenta - Cabriolet confirming an appointment at 1 pm……….
Those guys were unreal, they acted like it was a pit stop ………. So 78 hours after we left my house we were there …… 48 of those hours we were driving………. Which means we had 10 hours a day out of the car except for the fact that we gained an hour a day in time change which helped …….
Did I mention that Bring It On Down - Various - Los Cuarenta - Cabriolet this period, the country was experiencing Bring It On Down - Various - Los Cuarenta - Cabriolet temperatures? Did you think that original old Fords had air conditioning? Do you have any idea what it is like to ride in a cramped BLACK Ford 3 window coupe traveling at 75 to 80 miles per hour through degree heat? The interior temperature in the car, as good as it was, was over Think about that for 15 hours straight.
At one point about 6 hours into day 3, I turned to Dickie and asked …. Do you have any idea why we are doing this? When we pulled under the spacious portico of the Sheridan at the Fairplex to check in, I was nearly dead and Dickie wanted to know where to park.
Well as it turns out, it sat there for three days ……. Dickie So as luck would have it…… and Dickie always is, the luckiest man I have ever known I noticed that there was Whole Lot-ta Shakin Goin On - Elvis Presley - Im 10,000 Years Old - Elvis Country a crowd of knowledgeable people standing around looking at this bug splattered road grunged stock looking Ford sitting right outside the front door.
In fact there was a line of them that wanted to buy it. One guy told us to get everything out of it cause he was flying us home and the car was his ….
So for three days we were in heaven. Huge …. The parts were incredible …. I spent all my money …. Had to borrow some from Dickie to get home. Which …. Somewhere while we were in heaven I said that the trip home would be a lot tougher because we would lose an hour a day …. I think that the stress of the pace and statements like that might have been the cause of what I initially perceived as a little intestinal discomfort….
So Sunday morning June 21, at 4 am we hit the road, we had been gone one hour short of exactly a week. Fifteen hours later we mercifully stopped for the night.
Having not gone to the bathroom for now 3 full days I acquired some Doan Pills. I needed to fix this problem, and I DID. Now all of us have had bad days …. I know that we all have had them. Some of my worst have been: waking up from neck surgery when my spinal cord was crushed, the day after sinus surgery, the day after open heart surgery, and the morning following my recent back surgery … to name a few.
Once at a rest stop in New Mexico, I got back in the car after blowing the place up only to have Dickie perform an emergency Bring It On Down - Various - Los Cuarenta - Cabriolet turn so I could do it again. I was a sick puppy. While Dickie was fueling the car someplace in Arizona, with the temperature atall I could do was stand in the sun freezing and shaking like a leaf.
The pain of those cramps was off the charts. And then a strange then happened. Compassion …. I actually think that I was so bad off that it scared Dickie …. I converted our planed 12 hour day Insonnia - The Delay In The Universal Loop - Disarmonia 14…. Which sadly added two hours to our return trip elapsed time. Coast to coast ….
Speaking of perfect — the car was. One tire that did not fail and a tail pipe hanger that did were the only mechanical disappointments. This car has proven to me what most guys will never know about their cars or themselves …….
Do you have any idea how many engines, transmissions, and rear ends that Dickie has blown up in this car over the last 15 years? The number is staggering …. Then there is Jocey and Gunilla …. Who let us go … What were they thinking? What was I thinking? Brent Giesinger for the help. Did I mention that in the 98 hours on the road we stopped 44 times for gas?? They were pit stops ….
