A ride

 A new spring was ordered...just incase.  Far Guy put everything back together minus the spring to see what would happen with the new /old car.  It started and ran just fine.  Maybe he really doesn't need that spring that was lost. 


Far Guy wanted to take it for a ride so he called my baby brother and his bride to come along. 


 Baxter thought it was a cool ride. 


Plenty of room for him in the back seat on the seat or on the floor.  He was a good boy.

  2. That is a really cool car. I showed the photo to my husband and he knew exactly the make, year, and model. Guys and their cars.
    Baxter looks happy to go along.

  5. Reminds me of a time as a kid I took my kid's one speed bicycle apart (the kind where you push backward on the pedals to brake) and put it back together with a few parts extra. It appeared to work fine for awhile until I pushed back on the pedals to brake and found out I had no brakes!

  8. Far Guy must love dogs. Car people I know are all about "look don't touch". I am of the belief things are meant to be enjoyed, with care.

  10. When I see a back seat like that, I think about how many car seats could fit across it. #GrammaOfMany #DontMakeCarsLikeTheyUsedTo

  13. Going for a ride - one of my dad's favorite things. That sure brought back memories of Sunday afternoon rides in the car. Obviously Baxter was enjoying the ride. We had dogs over the years that got so excited when they heard the word RIDE.
