    I vote for Charger Lime green - it isn't pink, but it will still make that truck stand out!

    One of my buddys in high school had one of those superbirds in pink. Those were awesome cars too! I loved the grape and the lime, and superbee yellow.
    Heck i loved all those factory mopars!

    Plum crazy purple anyone? I'm partial to a lime green hemi Cuda (who isn't) fell in love with a yellow 68' Cuda from the window of my school bus as a boy.

    Friend of mine had a green dart that exploded outside of Las Vegas a few years back. Can't remember if he was on his way to California or NYC.... He loved that car.

    Safety check on my 72CL350 this past week, found two things. First rear brake stantion arm was loose, felt it twice. Thats what made me start looking it over. The rubber washer was dried out, made a new one to add to it. Plus rubbed in silicone grease on the old and new rubber washers, before putting back together. Then reassembly and and tightened back down, no more wiggle now!
    Then in the process of doing all this, i grabbed the rear tailight assembly and it wiggled. What??, what the heck, the left rubber was dry rotted and split! So i dug through my spare parts drawer. Found some good rubber mount collars, rubbed them down with silicone too. Then i went and recondition all the rubber mount parts on the taillight assembly. Now like the brake stantion arm, it too is rock solid.
    And thats all i found this time, moral of the story.
    Make sure you do your safety checks!!

    ps. Silicone compound will soften and rejuvenate old rubber parts, and makes them last longer.

    Rode the CL360 for a test of the new electronic ignition (Common Motors Shockwave). Was running very well in January with the new ignition. On the latest ride, the motor stalled three times, and could not reach 60 mph. Eased it all the way back home to investigate. Once home it idled for a few minutes, then suddenly died. The electrical system was completely dead, no headlight, no brake light, no starter. Fuses tested good. Spark plugs were tan and dry. After an hour tracing wires, I found the battery ground wire was loose on the frame, causing intermittent connection. Fixed that so it runs again. Adjusted intake and exhaust valves, adjusted the new ignition pickups with a timing light, one pickup had moved, now it fires right on the LF and F marks on the rotor. I hope for a good test ride this weekend.

    I got my hubby to tighten the front engine mount bolts on Olive as they had vibrated loose, so loose in fact that one nut was missing!

    Then we went out for a lovely ride and lunch at Sutton Bank Glider Station near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, England.

    I've always heard that a lot of you Brits are half nuts, but I somehow never thought that about you!

    Well, anyway, thanks for the pictures.

    It's hard to have too many motorcycles, but easy to have too many batteries and tires.

    I hit the carbs again this past weekend. Changed the float levels to 27.5mm, switched the needles for some newer ones, put in new B8ES plugs, rode it about 30 miles. Left plug looks great, right plug still looks too rich, but it's running really well now. At least I'm getting pretty fast at removing/disassembling/reassembling/installing the carbs - hopefully one more tweak on the right one will do it...
