Fond a set of XJ6 mirrors and switches to swap in place of my non-working ones. Now gotta find the time.

Cruised around in it this weekend. Starbucks for the wife, Barber shop for me, Home depot for some lumber to repair a fence, and later Sonic for some chill. Some guy in a Jelly bean stopped in the parking lot to stare as we were leaving. Guess he wished he were me. 8-)

Did a 200+ mile trip today. Over Monteagle mountain to Cleveland TN and back.

Glad Radio Flyer has a new radiator. the old one would have definitely overheated.
Mountain pulls got 3/4 the way up the green on the coolant gauge (most of the time, she runs on the bottom 1/3 of the green).

Coming back, there was a wreck on 75 and we ended stuck in a standstill for about an hour on the scorching pavement in 95* temps.
Only climbed to between 2/3-3/4 on the gauge. Never got hot or edged the red.

The two humans inside however..... :cry:

Proud of the pig nosed wagon.

Fuel economy for yesterday's trip 13.1 on the way there. 13.8 on the way back (odd since the way back had a one hour standstill delay)....

Went to Fall Creek Falls today in it. More stickers for the back glass! :D

While there another guy a few years younger (mid 20's) stopped to gawk and talk Waggy with me.

Pretty interesting that even younger guys recognize these things.

Another mileage update: 14.2 on the last tank with lots of highway 60-65mph driving. Finally have a date with the paint shop to get the body issues addressed. Pulled the "wood" trim in prep of paint and new woodgrain vinyl.

Radio Flyer is now at the body shop getting a nip-tuck and some maybelline applied. Working on the trim bits at home. New grille and some window weatherstrip on its way from BJ's. Excited isn't even the word.
