Dear WeatherCat automobile enthusiasts,
Orinda Motors finally was able to pull the big-block engine out of my trusty wagon by Friday morning. I still think it is one handsome machine:
With that done it was time to send Biquette home so that Orinda Motor could take on another classic car customer. So yesterday I arranged for her to be transported on a flatbed truck. Here she is being loaded:
You can just make out the "Orinda Classic Car Center" sign under the roof. At home the process was reversed and she was unloaded on the driveway:
Finally with some human muscle power, she was wiggled into her normal spot in the garage:
Today I went through all the parts and labeled the boxes to make reassembly that much easier. Sometime next week the engine will travel back to Arizona to find out what in the world went wrong.
Definitely a gloomy time for da' trusty wagon
and owner . . . .
