I parked it and it will most likely stay there for the winter before I am able to do much with it. I will probably clean it out and see what I'm in for but I guess we'll see. I am constantly tempted to just flip it because I got it for such a good price and it's in better shape than I thought for once. I really want to get fenders and bumpers for Ed. I guess I'll sleep on it for awhile and then decide.

So we acquired another bug at our house much to the delight of Dixie of course. This was just too good of a deal to pass up on. It not much to look at but it's actually a hidden gem underneath for 1 really good reason. ITS RUST FREE!!!! OK actually it has very minor surface rust in spots but the heater channels and other problematic areas are in awesome shape. I have been looking long and hard for a rust free body for a good price. I was able to jump on this one quick enough to fight off the others that wanted it. I had to go up north to west point to pick it up. I swear there never is a good deal in Salt Lake. Here She is behind my truck. I needed to fill up on gas before the trip home.

So, with Summer running out quickly and Saturday being an awesome day weather wise, everything was set to take Ed out for one last long ride. I had some stuff to take care of in Logan so I figured I would take care of that and then cruise around and see some towns up north. I took Ed back up to where I bought him a few years ago. To commemorate this ride Ed had just the right amount of mileage for a picture. This way I will remember the year of this drive anyways. So with a fresh oil change and a full tank of gas I headed up north to see what I could see. I didn't have to be back anytime soon so I had nothing but time.
It took me most of the day but I had a blast on the last big drive of the year. I still drive Ed everyday but a big roadtrip is always something special. The next one on the books will most likely be to St. George in 2013. Ed's going to get a little makeover this winter. Hopefully his engine will get all the leaks fixed and then he is going to get new fenders and bumpers. He may even get his flames put on if I can talk my buddy into painting them on for me. There will be lots of things to write about so stay tuned.
