Tis also warm in Sunny Southern California

Mama was nice

and got lots of presents.
That's a Douglas Fir; you can smell it when you first walk in.

One of my old tools developed legs, so I'll be using this
Image
from now on.
A bit of overkill, but hey; it's Christmas!

A special thanks to PVR007 (Paul) who showered us with a few Suzuki trinkets at the last So Cal meet.

Don't give up; there's a child in all of us, and Christmas is the time to let it out...in a good way!

Santa has been good out West.

We are almost the last ones to wish you a Merry Christmas globally, but here it is nonetheless:

And I wasn't kidding about Santa bringing some cheer:

Between that and the Suzukis, 2016 should be fun, fun, fun!

Keep on wrenching!!!

jvs and pacapo: Hmm.. a 40 foot lift, and a big truck mounted crane? is this a new Pacific trend we are seeing?

Temps here will only be 50F on Christmas Day, but I'm not complaining.
Better if I had sent that package to Derek and the Wife & I were vacationing in New Zealand.
Oh, well.
Maybe next year.

What ever happened to Geos Vettes & Sprints, hehehe....

That 1963 Ford F-804 crane truck is about 35% finished.
I've purchased some heavy duty tools to work on it, and most of the hard to find parts have been sourced.
The retarder foot pedal, which controls an internal transmission brake, slowing the truck down long grades was particularly hard to find.
For a change, I started with cosmetics,
Image
matching the paint and acquiring the ability to repair the upholstery.
Here's a wider angle shot, giving you an idea of its potential:
Image
It still has a long way to go, but it is going in the right direction, and the Department of Transportation won't red flag it when I pass through the scales by the time I get it on the road. I could see it as a useful addition to the area in case of a major traffic accident, putting air conditioning on a roof, moving large rock and (with a bucket instead of a hook) tree trimming.
Very few have gone up for sale in the past 3 years.
They do require a certain level of maintenance which seems to escape the younger generation.

The upholstery knowledge, sewing machine upgrade and heavy duty thread may come in useful down the line with the Sprints, Metro, and Swifts.

In the meantime, here's a little rolling stock addition this year:
Image
I promise, this is my LAST project.
350 4 bolt mains mouse engine with an Edelbrock Performer Carburetor
Turbohydromatic transmission
It is an old 'street rod' and there's no need to reinvent the wheel.
Built in Wisconsin, it has it's share of rust, but will get the wire brush and oil based paint to freeze any advance of future rust.
New technology will go into it:
I'm liking the new electronic power steering, and would be surprised if anyone ever retrofits an old car with hydraulic based power steering again.
Have you seen it?
Check out you tube for a quick update on electric power steering.
I see it as a daily driver for the Wife in a few months.
And what is it?
A pretty rare body style. 20,000 were made, probably 200 left because the van of the 1960's made them obsolete as a working truck and most were scrapped.
It's a 1951 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery.

It's raining as I type this.
Rare in these parts, but with a decent laptop I'm back in the Teamswift game when it's inclement outside.

As has been said before:
Image

...and a successful 2017 to all you hard working Teamswift members!

Hahahaha, well merry xmas from Tahuna beach in sunny Nelson, top of the South Island, except that after a 6 hour drive in beautiful sunny conditions through the mountains , 20 mins away from our destination it started to rain and we had to put up our tent and shelter in the rain :roll: at least the kids didn't throw up in the car I suppose, actually it was a great trip up, looking forward to a typical hot Kiwi Christmas holiday.

Merry Christmas to all fellow Teamswifters!

Swift wasn't running quite right--hard to start, slight miss when the correcting the mixture. While investigating possibilities, the coil wire disintegrated in my hand.

Long story short, I got some new "christmas wires". They are very festive. Prestolite apparently = Denso and on sale at Rockauto :D

Image

Now for some unnecessary pictures of autocross last weekend. There's not much to be done about 2 year old tires given I am not going to pay $600 extra to have them shipped to Hawaii. Otherwise the car is working great and I'm just trying to keep working on the nut behind the wheel. I will update the community when I figure out where we're headed next in a few months.
