    You'll have to stay at the one in San Bernardino too. The family stayed there a few years ago. Really enjoyed and the owner is very nice.

      The one photo with the old cars still there reminds me of the Eagles hit song Hotel California.

      Last thing I remember
      I was running for the door
      I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
      "Relax," said the night man
      "We are programmed to receive
      You can check-out any time you like
      But you can never leave!"

          14BDF4D8-ABE3-47DF-8D5E-DC7393FA9C6B.jpeg Monday morning surprise. Dramatic temp change? Dropped into the 20’s. Wiped it, snugged it, and will watch. Barely measurable at cap.

            Good to keep an eye on it. Probably not an issue after tightening.

              Nice, clean, strong mix ya got there Dennis.
              I'll have a fresh mix in the Roadrunner and GTO soon when I replace the radiators.
              Great updates, and your meticulous attention to the status of your car is inspiring. She is well cared for.

                      No matter how hard I tried to fix a lower drip like that was to use another clamp along with the one that's already there. Kinda like makin a band clamp. No one really sees it unless it's on a lift. Good Luck

                              I would not have wanted to do it as our parents did: in the summer, no air conditioning, and 3-6 restless youngins in the car with shrew-sized bladders asking, "Are we there yet?"

                                    Leaving Flagstaff with the coolant drip, I asked Linda to keep an eye on the coolant temp on the Pro Flo tablet screen. Normally the Stant Superstat 180 has the engine come up to operating temp quick. Sort of spikes to 181, then settles down to 170 or lower. Asked her to let me know if it reaches 190, high for conditions and ambient temps. She read it off blow by blow. 179, 180, 181, ONE EIGHTY TWO!!!!!! Jesus Chrysler. It settled down to 175. No leaks.

Beautiful. Staying at the Pioneer. Linda hates it. I like that the Cowboy on the sign still has a cigarette in his mouth and has not been “cleaned up” by the libs. First pic the water Taxi. God Bless the USA.
