Re: Snow much fun!

In '53 or so in Colorado Springs, my Dad would tow me (5 yo) around the neighborhood on a sled with the coupe I have now. Great fun, but he'd get arrested today!

Re: Topics one should cover in a "new head" walkthrough video

I followed Dave in MN's advice and didn't use antifreeze for 500 miles or so and my head doesn't weep.

Re: headlight current tied to ignition switch?
