the end is near....the end of the week that is....

not a whole lot has happen this week......
after several months....maybe even over a year.....i finally washed my work truk tonight....and gave it a good rub down with some rubbing compound to get the rest of the ground in dirt out and to polish up the chrome....after a little bit of armorall the ol' dodge was looking good. hope the boss's appreciate at the meeting tomarrow morning!

hopefully by the end of the weekend i'll finally have my vin number tag and my title or at least a bill of sale for my bronco i bought almost a year ago....i havn't been in a hurry to get it intil recently since i let my registration for my other bronco lapse last month. the vin number plate is riveted on the glove box door of the bronco...so its easy to swap to different broncos....so my plan was to take the vin plate from the other bronco which i believe is a '71 and put it on my bronco which is a '76 and register it as the '71 so i won't have to deal with emissions....eventually i'll swap my '76 drivetrain over to the '71 so it will be legit.

yesterday i stopped by my friend's(ron) shop to touch base on the work i'll be doing on his house....his wife still hasn't made her mind on what she wants to do....hopefully she'll make her mind soon since we've been talking about doing this for about 2 years now! it's always good to stop by ron's shop since he usually has something going on....i think the main business started out rebuilding and servicing hydraulic pumps, but later he added on truck suspensions. the yard isn't the pretty sight unless your into truks.....he has a half of dozen or so broncos in different states of repair, a '78 4-door bronco he built, a couple trucks with 44" tires underneath them, and a F350 6X6 with 49" tires he's currently working on to enter in the top truck challange.....i've already volunteered to be his spotter for this event! he also has a '36 ford hunchback sedan that he's hotrodding...chopped, airbagged, and shaved...he also shoved in a 351 efi roller motor.

tomarrow night is rasputina....this will be a good start for the weekend....i havn't seen them in about 2 years...i'm really looking forward! last time they were here that played at a gay club......this time they're playing at a large venue....one step down from convention center size. only wish i heard some of their new stuff.....no stores in the abq area seem to carry it. maybe next time.....

late...
