The reason I seldom attend mini-meets with road tours is the fact there are usually one or more cars that are unprepared or unfit to be driven. I spend most of my time working on a car that shouldn't be there. I'm expected to have the parts and tools with me to fix anything. A busman's holiday, exactly. The best tool is a shakedown run following a thorough going over and fresh fluids in everything including the brake system. If the car is well prepared, all you need is a schedule of the event and a full tank of gas. I really believe that some guys enjoy tinkering with their car on tour or riding in the big truck, towing their car on the backup trailer. Hey guys, these cars are for driving, give them the opportunity to show what they are capable of!

Yeah for the driving, I have a couple old cars that I drive quite regularly. I rarely ever take more than a screw driver and a pair of pliers. And of coarse the FIRE EXTINGUISHER . There is nothing like taking a leisurely cruise in a car that was built 40,50,60 or 70 plus years ago. Most of these cars were reasonably dependable when they were new. With the resourses we have today, there is no reason they can't be as depndable or even better than they were. There is no question, we make them better looking than they were. I stay off the highways, these cars weren't built for the super highways. It's a lot more fun to drive the secondary roads and feel like your back in the time frame of the car you are driving.

I was in another club one time and I asked another member what would happen if I broke down on the run and he said,? I was on my own, they don?t stop for anybody?.

I asked the same question to an ACD member and the response was ?Don?t worry?. Very refreshing to know. They would help me get out no matter how late they would have to wait or work to rescue a member in distress.

I have all kind of emergency tools in my modern car <floor jack, flashlight, air tank> and even it could break, I heard an old-timer once say? If you can?t fix em, don?t drive em ?.

It's good to know when I am fifty miles from a filling station ingenuity will persevere. Anything at hand to correct the problem. Hopefully they will run perfectly but since these are manmade they could malfunction.

I never want to break down, but if I do I sure hope there is a cool stream and a shade tree near buy to work under.

Does anybody have any interesting breakdown stories. I remember hearing about a broken suspension bolt being changed on a busy bridge, ect. Share your adventures!
