There and back again... Road trip!

Drove the CS 810 trouble-free(ish) miles Labor Day Weekend to the 35th International Mustang Meet in BC, Canada.





Very nice event and a great showing of CS/GTs... There were 8 or 9 of them total.

I love to see unrestored cars at the shows. There is so much to be learned from them. Is that the X code?

All and all, things went well. My stop light switch started sticking and I had to keep fiddling with the pedal and it would shut off most of the time after a spell... Otherwise, very uneventful--even idling and creeping for almost 2 hours (!!!!!) to cross the border north. Ugh. Won't make that trip again for a long time, but it was interesting.

Yes, my X-code, warts and all. Great runner and driver but not so pretty anymore. It's got the wrong coil, battery cables, and solenoid, but otherwise is fairly correct and stock/original.
