Short attention span, I guess.
Or just very fortunate. I think between you, your brother, and your dad you guys own more nice cars of the era than many of us get to see

I can't take any credit. I've had the same one for 30 years. Just wish it was finally back together.

After another week working in the People's Shithole Republic of Portland, Supervibe got an oil change and tire rotate. New tires on order for next time. Replaced radial bearings on the viscous coupler. According to old forum posts, this was apparently a $3300 repair back in the day. OEM bearings and dust shield were $72 with shipping and the repair took less than an hour.




I found that both U-joints have a little play. Of course they're "non-servicable" and the driveline assembly is $1100. I think I've found a source so I'll try to replace them. Always something. Currently 320,000 on the clock. Running better than ever and just keeps paying me.

Replaced fork seals on white bike.





Then I built an adapter harness and installed my Trailtech dash. NOTHING about it was bolt-on.

Brown dog had a rough day so she gets a rare couch nap. She's moving slower and seems to be in more pain. Doesn't complain, just looks really stiff. We're going to double her anti-inflammatory meds and see if it helps. She did the hill climb between the house and shop 4 times today. That's a lot for her these days.

Is she a mixed breed? She looks to be a Plott in this photo?

Not really. She just falls somewhere in the wide catch-all family considered "pitbull." She's on the smaller, lighter end. They're all kind of mutts, really.

Sparky had a lot of joint pain in his later years. His stubby legs didn't help matters. Hopefully you can find a pain med that works for her.
