Bad morning!!

Recommended Posts


Well, I went out to the shop to feed the shop cat and the whole shop was filled with smoke. Turned out is was the horn relay on my 1960 ford f100. Luckily the fire didn't spread to my tractors or worse the whole barn.

Yes, cat is fine thankfully. Truck just needs to be rewired. Wires next to the horn relay also got fried so shouldn't be to bad. But it's 54 year old wiring so you never know

I always keep the battery disconnected on my 61 corvette in fear of it burning my house down. Everything works good on it, but like you said, when you have 53 year old wiring you never know. Im glad nothing worse happened.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
