    One more winter and I'll finally drive this thing after 33 years of dreaming about it. Also currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to try and get the full restoration funded so I can live another life long dream: My ultimate cross country/Route 66 road trip. Check out the video and project details here:

    Thanks to the Cool Rides folks for sending me here to the forum! You guys rock!

    I flipped and refinished the original bed wood and finally got the bed back on just a couple of weeks ago. The front is now sporting a disc brake kit, and hoping to get the rear brakes ready soon (with some help). A friend is fabbing up a mount for the new dual feed master cylinder and will run the lines for me. Then it's just a matter of a new battery, registration and insurance and the dream will finally happen in the spring...
