1947 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster 6EPJ3165, original 216 engine, built in Oakland Ca, 65th 3100 made?
Today was a good day. I woke up at 7, put a cup of coffee in me and a tank of gas in the Sprint at 7:40 -didn’t think I needed it but did it out of caution at the beginning of the 80ish miles to my dads house, managed to get almost 13 gallons in it. Running out of gas would have been my fault but still would have dampened my enthusiasm for the Sprint. It took about 2 hours to get there, getting wound up weaving through fairly uptight traffic from Oakland to Napa and then unwinding from Napa to Middletown on the pastoral two-lane sweepers. Plan was to do some work on the truck engine, help with some garage organization and eat a good hamburger.
The Sprint, still tink tink tinking from the spirited drive over the switchback dense hill from Calistoga to Middletown. Our friend John couldn’t get over the Sprint, it’s simplicity, sophistication and style. I don’t blame him, I’m still stuck on it.
