After being away from my Baby, Barrel Back Barn Find for two weeks I am ready to make sweet love to her, and get her set up for her big appearance at the Smith Mountain Lake Show in a week. The “plan” is to get her started this weekend with lots of new goodies, like her new Rayco Fuel tank.
And all new plugs, fuel pump, carb rebuild and other stuff from VanNess Engineering.
We have a windshield part from Jimmy and new packing and other goodies from Classic Boat Connection. Then at the big Smith Mountain Lake Show put her in the water for the first time in over 4 decades. Be there to watch us do what we hope wont happen. Like going to the races, you know you want to see a crash. But glad when it doesn’t happen. That kinda fun. Smith Mountain Lake is home to Phil “5 Gallon Bucket” Jones so we should be covered!
