All loaded up and ready for the trip

Well I am out here near Seattle WA and I am bringing home my 68 coupe that has been sitting at my brothers house for 7 years now. I left it here in the winter of 2004 when I moved to outside Cleveland OH. I am out here for work and driving home so I figured I would bring my baby home with me. I leave on Thursday morning and should be in back to OH by Sunday. Wave if you see me on 90 or 82 or 84 or 80.

Good luck with the trip. A word to the wise though, the last time I towed a car that was on the trailer backwards there was to much weight on the back of the trailer and not enough weight on the tongue and I couldn't do more than 55 mph without trailor getting all crazy.

I got that covered I will be adjusting the trailer to the truck and making sure the tongue weight is correct. I know what you mean by to light a tongue weight they do some damn strange things while driving. Thanks

Trans go out? If not it will by the time you make if. 4L60 is a modern day AOD.

No the tranny seems fine I think it has a bad fuel injector or two. I replaced the fuel filter in ID and that seemed to help. I made it home safely on Sunday afternoon with out any more problems.
