How far away is the closest gas station?

There's a gas station on Greenhill on corner with Hwy126 where you turn left...few miles east on Hwy126 there's a Super Wal-Mart couple more gas stations and bunch of other stuff, you'll see the Wal-Mart from the beltline on the left as you come up to the Hwy126 intersection...

What everyone else got left? I need to build an exhaust, rewrap part of my harness, wire in my tach and horn, rebuild my brake master, shake down my truck, get the carb tuned the best I can, and possibly make a truck bed trailer. Although with two other trucks in my spot I'm not sure I'll have a need for the trailer.


Oh yeah, then clean everything. I've tried two different power washers in my engine bay, first one was electric so it didn't do much, gas one worked better but still wouldn't get certain parts off. So I'll be hand scrubbing most of the engine bay....fun.

Me n old yeller got the engine and tranny back it pretty quick.one of the holes for the oil pan took longer than expected to re tap but it happened. Also bought all new bolts and washers for the oil pan because another bolt broke last night for the timing cover. Tomoro I have to put in the dizzy n oil pump.I know I should have done it while out but ibput tje engine on the stand with the flywheel and the bolts from the stand wouldnt allow my to turn the engine over.No biggie though ill get it timed, my main concern os not leaking oil any more

Epic!!!! That's what it's all about!, the awesome experiences life gives us that you and your family will always remember forever, little things like this that sticks and remains in our memories throughout time.....I remember being 6 and getting all 6 of us in an NSU my dad built in the 80s packed til there was no room for an ant to go camping at the races in Argentina....memorable family moments!
