So far so good! The old 49 Lincoln looks pretty good in front of the house. (Mom does not agree!) But thanks to Pete Christense's help, there she is in all her glory. Four thousand pounds of steel! What a ride! I'm glad I spent the $150 to replace the head gaskets. The engine sounds great now! Finned aluminun high compression heads, dual carbs, progressive linkage and dual exhausts what more could a guy ask for! . . . I hope she starts! OK!!! listen to the rumble! I'm on my way! Just turn the radio to WOMT . . . Oh, I love this song
Going to Late's was always an adventure. You never knew who you're going to see there. I Just passed Lincoln's shop class on the left, over the tracks and THERE IT IS ON THE RIGHT! All lit up with those florescent lights outlining the roof is that old square greenish building we call Late's. Gravel parking lot, boy, looks like the parking lot is full. I see some of the guys have already arrived. There's a spot to park. Late's has the greatest burgers and fries although they never had much "inside" seating. Didn't need it! They had "carhops" come right over to the car and take your order. Music played over the loud speakers, all the current hit songs. You never drank your coke in the car, you just walked around and talked to your friends . . . they were all there. Lots of things happened at Late's! Now I'll just grab my coke and see who I can find. Oh! there's Pete Christensen and Donna Cauley. Me Hi Pete! Leaving already??? Pete Yah got a test tomorrow and it's a real important one! Me Well you should be more like me, I take all my tests seriously! Pete Yah! Right! We're leavingright after this song!
