Well the tow from h.ll started on this past Monday to get the donor V8 Astro back from Evansville In to Roch NY.Got as far as 40 miles outside of Cleveland and smelled antifreeze.Nothing on the ground and not wet inside the passenger side.Thought it was the heater core and turned it around back to Roch.Cost $120 in gas plus tolls.Grrr.Got to look at it on Tues and found it was rotted hose clamps the we replaced only a yr ago for the rear heater.Before I went I changed the oil and filter on the LT.I have been a Fram filter guy for about 20yrs or more.Read a report that made take note about Frams filters and how cheaply they are made.So this time I used a Wex filter rated very high.I am very happy with it so far.When you step on the gas the oil pressure stays up for a long time afterwards.Got something to do with how the valving works better on the Wex filter and it filters more on them over the Fram design.Noticeable difference between the two.

Seems nice. You may want to visit first. Pictures can be deceiving.

Stacey is now talking about moving out with Anna next year. Anna and her "insignificant other" are thinking about moving back to Socorro NM in the spring. Stacey has been complaining about the cold here. She's staying in the house we are rehabbing, unlike David & I who are staying in the <STRIKE>icebox</STRIKE>... ummmm.... RV.

Well, Don't say good yet...I have to do more testing as they took more blood for testing and now I am to report Tuesday Morning for More testing. When I find out will let you all know.
I did post a couple of pictures of the bumper hitch and it isn't bad, Not bad at all!! beleave it or not That bumper is from a old Coachmen trailer that had died along time ago!! Its fitting that I have a coachmen motorhome and towing a Isuzu with a Coachmen bumper. And like the trailers, I can put my sewer hoses into them and put the end caps on to hold them there! Not to bad of a idea!! I will check in later,
