  2. Wouldn't start. I think we're down to the fuel pump, as nothing is coming up from it, although it ran for almost 5 minutes a month ago. I'm off to remove the AC unit and bracket, and power steering pump so I can get to the fuel pump's top bolt.

    Rouck New in Town

    I've been lurking on this forum for too long without posting something so I decided to make an account, this seems appropiate as a first post.

    Here's my baby, her name is "Louisa". Opel Rekord C 1966 Luxury Edition.

    Well, it took way longer than I had planned, but I finally got my old '65 Ford back from being painted today.

    My aunt Sara Brown Lewis bought this car new in 1965. When she passed away in 1983 it was left to me. It had 35,000 miles on it when I got the car. It now has just a little bit over 300,000 miles, and still runs like a dream.

    I had the car printed in 1985, and should have had it painted again 10 years ago. I didn't, and by the time I got around to having it painted this time it really did need some extra work. I'm glad it's done now, because it looks like a brand new car again.

    When I pulled in the driveway this evening from picking the car up, Mackenna came running out and hugged me saying, "my Ford is back!" I think she was more excited than I was. Sam, who was just a baby when the Ford went to the shop, went around the car rubbing it and saying how smooth it was. He also said, "this Ford is just like the Plymouth but blue." (The '48 Plymouth is Sam's favorite car.)

    It sure is good having my old '65 back. I've missed driving that old car way too long. Not only have I put a lot of miles on that car since I started driving it in 1983, but I've also got a lot of good memories associated with the car.

    This new paint job should last another 20 years. By the time it needs painting again, I guess it will be someone else who will have it done.

    One other thing of note:. It cost me close to twice what my aunt Sara paid for the car new in 1965 to have it painted in 2017. Think about that for a while.
     
  6. The only thing better than having an old car is having an old car that's been in the family since new.
