Pancake weather.
You need weather for that?

We have them for breakfast, any day of the week. Had some this morning in fact. With homemade wild blackberry jelly.

And coffee.

Mmmmm . . . . . . . . tasty!

But then, it is completely over engineered.
Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Very well.

Yes, oddly, it's always been a winter thing for us. With cinamon sugar and freshly sqeezed lemon juice drizzled over.

Neither my friend nor I have any Norwegian in us, but by listening to our conversation in the Colby cruise video you'd think we were by all the oof das that peppered our talk.

To be even more Norwegian like, I humbly apologize for our potty mouths.

I'm sure a Norwegian would accept your apology. I think I have some Norwegian in me. A grandmother was a MacLeod and some say MacLeod's were the only Scottish clan that was actually Norwegian, not Celtic based. The area of Scotland they lived in was under Norwegian control till the 1400's.

At about 60 seconds into the warmup video I get to the engine bay and linger there until about 1:45. At 1:34 I lean in and get a great shot of the air cleaner, which has CHARGER 273 on it.

So one would think it is a 273, and checking the VIN would confirm it is a 273 car. Bu the 273, 318 and 340 all looked alike and were not easy to distinguish.

This car actually has a .030 over 318 in it.

He bought the car in near similar condition as the red 67 Dart GTS 383 he has, although this car was considerably more complete (the red car was tthe body shell, on a rear axle, nothing else), it was in boxes. The engine had been rebuilt, but not assembled. The carburetor was missing. Al lot of stuff was replaced with NOS parts, wiring switches and such.



I'm partial to the GTS he has though.









By the way, these pictures were made with my K-1, further proof I don't need a K-3.
I had buddies who had 340's back in the late '60's. I was a Chevy guy, so had my '67 Camaro coupe RS, 327 V8 and 4 speed Muncie. Those 340's would haul and were under rated at 275 hp.

In '65 I was riding my J.C. Higgins and saw a early Barracuda..first gen. It had the hi performance 273 with mechanical lifters, hotter cam and that great square exhaust ...with a wonderful 'burble'. I guess he could see me looking enviously at his car and ran it hard through the gears. I was impressed, so impressed that I still remember the sound and moves of that Barracuda . I was 14 at the time and now I'm just barely a septuagenarian.

The same guy owns this van. He got it in the late seventies. It had a 318 in it.

He dropped a 340 in it.

It gets it..






The inside is done in diamond sewn crushed velvet.

Before clan battles...the MacLeod clan were the traditional workplace, health and safety officers. Their primary task is to make sure the bearer of a dirk, didn't do a mischief to himself, before battle.

I remember these old Dodge D series vans well. If my vintage memory isn't off kilter, I do believe you could get a 440 cube V8 in them in the '70's. In '97 when our family was young we came close to buying a new D150 window van with a 318 and bench seats ...2nd and 3rd row...that could be configured to face each other...with a Mopar folding table between them. Thought it would be a great feature while traveling...so our kids could play games, read books at the table. We towed our trailer (RV) then and think it would of been a good tow vehicle. Instead we got a '97 Astro with 3.42 gears, HD suspension, had the 4.3 Vortec V6 etc...It was a good tow vehicle.

That is a long established business, that has done well over the years.

I wish I was related to that McLeod.

...back to kilts.
Bert may already know all this, but others might be interested on the provenance of Bert's garb.
It's 4 pages long, but a bit interesting. (nothing about the under-garb - if any)

When I was a kid, spent a lot of time in North Dakota and northern Minnesota. You could always tell someone who had Norwegian antecedents...by the number of oofda's that peppered their speech.
Uff da.
