That's one of those Chryslers with a push-button tranny setup?! :dro:Thanks for the compliments all!
It drove beautifully all day. Then, vapor lock happened. Or what I suspect was vapor lock. It could have been that I was an idiot and pumped the gas pedal on an already hot engine, thereby activating the electronic choke (one of the very few, minor modern upgrades on the car) and then starved the engine. I think the latter happened first, then I got it going after a 40 minute cool down on the side of the road, and then the former happened because Christine likes to push my buttons for a change (transmission-related pun intended).
All is well now...she sailed home in dynamic fashion.
The best part is I smell like old car now.
It was rebuilt/refurbished (cosmetically) sometime in the 1990s, and then it sat without a powertrain. I came along in 2003 and had the rest put together, and it's been an ongoing process since. I have less mechanical inclination than I feel comfortable admitting, so even changing the spark plugs is an all-consuming event for me.Is it all original or have you done any work on it? Either way it is beautiful.
Sure is. Three-speed TorqueFlite. Perhaps the finest automatic transmission up until this very decade.That's one of those Chryslers with a push-button tranny setup?! :dro:
I think it's a combination of gasoline, oil, transmission fluid, coolant, and 50 years of "outgassing."Haha, if by "smell like old car" do you mean you smell like vinyl or gas? :
LOL, right before I add nawz.Nice ride. Nice fins. Nice pushbuttons. Kewl.
