    When we did the Power Tour, I had a Craftsman tool kit as well as a tool bag with assorted electrical stuff, pliers, screwdrivers, electrical tools, including a bag with a bunch of crimp connectors, relays, fuses and some lengths of wire. I also included the multimeter. I had the jack as well as a jack stand. You will also find small vice grips handy.

    Under the rear seat, I had a spare starter, alternator, HEI module, Holley fuel pressure regulator diaphragm and a Holley electric fuel pump. The pump was already set up with the hose and electrical connectors that my current pump has. Any small parts that might not be at a local parts house that could shut you down with no work arounds would be a good idea.

    Now I carry my battery impact with lug nut sockets to compliment the 4-way lug wrench that I always carry. I also have a good tire plug kit and some way to air up a tire. I have had a spare tire ever since I have driven the car. I used it once and loaned it out once. It's on a narrow, multi bolt pattern steel wheel that fits 4 1/2 and 4 3/4 inch patterns.

    Of course, I drive a 46 coupe with a plenty of room in the trunk. When traveling with my T, I pulled a Mullins style trailer with most of this same stuff, including the spare.

    For anybody that's just getting started in the whole long distance hot rod thing, remember this: It's very difficult to find someone to work on one and aftermarket parts are difficult to to find in a hurry. Consider yourself own your own most of the time unless traveling with a partner and plan accordingly.

    I remember my first night at the hotel at the start of the PT. A bunch of veterans of the tour were giving me words of encouragement. They said, "Don't worry. If you pull over, 5 people will pull over to help." Yeah, right! I hit a railroad crossing in Illinois that was rough enough that it shut off the Ford impact switch on my electric fuel pump. When the engine quit and I dived off the road, 5 people drove around me and never looked back! A steady stream of cars passed by with not so much as a wave.

    Beautiful weather lately. Taking advantage of being able to enjoy it without having to contend with a crowd. Here are some shots from one of the DFW infamous high fives.

    Cleaned up my tailpipes today. Best thing I did on the exhaust was to install the entire system with flanges. Three bolts on each side and its off. With no rack I just pull the rear sections to get to them.

    I thought you had EFI ? Yes / No? She looks to be running rich. Mucho Black on those tips.

    No EFI now. I have struggled to get the timing and the carburator set up right. Most of that build up is from the past, that was one of the reasons I decided to clean the pipes up, so I could see where I was at.

    Good friend sent me some old license plates to use a wallpaper in the garage. He also sent a 1933 license plate from Tennessee. I think the old plate is cool. Question is should I restore it or should simply clean it up and preserve the patina?

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    Since you live in Texas and the '33 plate is from Tennessee, you can only be asking for advice on how to handle your wall art, which you choose to term "wallpaper"? I'd say it doesn't matter to anyone but you. If you want to maintain any value of the old plates, don't screw around with them at all, just hang them on the wall. If you want to "improve" the look, which is only to your eye, then by all means "clean it up" to suit yourself. Wall art is subjective. It's your wall, your art, and you only need to please yourself.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Was thinking about using the plate at showings providing there is any showing in our human future. Wall art is a different set of tags, more current. I was raised in Tennessee

    Placed in the top five in a virtual car show with 240 cars entered. Also added some more plates and shelving to my garage wall.
