sunday i took my '71 chevy shorty to its first mountain bike race. only had 'er for a month or so, and she's been refusing to idle for the last week or two. i tried all the easy fixes which made no difference. then it just fixed itself, so it seemed like a good chance for a test to see how it would do on the road. so i enlisted two friends (to help push) loaded the bikes, gear, and food and drove 300 miles round trip to state finals for our high school mountain bike league. she never missed a beat, got 14.5 mpg driving 60-65 and rattled and squeaked so much that now we are all deaf...i love it!
