I keep forgetting....
There was a food truck there serving up Mexican food. I strolled up and ordered 3 tacos. The man suggested that I try them with his own handmade corn tortillas instead of the pre-made ones from a bag.
Carne Asada, cilantro and onion, a bit of cheese and sour cream.
HOLY COW those were fantastic. I don't think that I have had a better taco from any restaurant or street food truck.
I hope they are back in the fall. GREAT food!
Well clearly your using it as God & Ma Mopar intended...It was fun to meet a some members in person. Beautiful cars, awesome swap meet and great people! Thanks to all who stopped to offer assistance to me on the side of the 405 highway when my shifter handle went airborne and decided it wanted to try and kiss the inside of my windshield on a hard downshift..Special thanks to the guys back at the hotel who helped me muscle it back into place so I could still drive the car to the show and 500 more miles back home. Looks like I may convert to a bolt through style as I never want that to happen again. View attachment 1453585
Thanks for all the helpful tips and advice. This is what my shifter handle looks like currently. I took it back out at Woodley Park and compared it to all those I saw at the swap meet. It looked similar to almost all that were for sale. I was concerned the lock recess was worn or too smooth. I’m thinking I could probably reuse the shifter but only if I install new rubber inserts/metal retainer clips. The metal tab/lock piece inside the base was sheared or worn to the point it was almost not visible and it obviously wasn’t functioning as a retainer. The later bolt through style seems more secure since I tend to gorilla shift at times. But it would be easier to fix this as is without the hassle and expense of converting to bolts. All part of using the car and driving it as intended!Well clearly your using it as God & Ma Mopar intended...
The lock springs are good when new but after the stick has been removed & reinstalled, especially if a plater smooths the edges of the lock recess they tend to not hold quite so securely..
