I retired from Florida in 1998 and moved to Winstom Salam NC. At that time homes with land was very affordable along with auto insurance and property taxes. In the past few years all of them have increased. I suggest you check into the each states personal income tax which takes. (NC taxes are based on all income even from pensions from other states)  Ga. And South Caroline offer tax exempts for seniors on incomes which NC does not.  Looking back I have enjoyed living in NC but wish I had looked into each states tax laws, I could have saved some money!

I have informed my wife to put some of my ashes in the gas tank of my Shelby so the next owner has to start working on it trying to find out that's wrong. That way I can still be with the car for awhile longer.

My wife's family have their family reunion at Hickory Knob state park every Father's Day there. Been going for over fourth years. You are right that it is a small town that has not changed in all the years I have been visiting.  Lots of snow birds have winter homes their around the lake.

I have had this happen and found the front rubber brake hoses were the cause. They would not let the fluid flow back.

Had mine worked on by Orlando Mustang!  They can repair the gauges and reface the surface.  They also have come up with a way to install tacks in 69/70 mustangs that were not tac cars originally

I owned this car years ago. Very rusty in door hinge area around areas were doors bolted on and rear quarters around side vents . Floors were good. All sheet metal was original. Motor was a hippo but not original to car. Was told it from 6s122 a couple years later when I bought it from Robert Mungrul. I sold it to Wayne Conover (cobra ranch)  no telling what he did to it. Interesting is no one has ever contacted me about car. Car was just to rusty for me.

The photo of Shelby on the motorcycle (moped?) is a Honda trail 55 cc. It was the first trail bikes that Honda made. It was the trail 50, you can tell by the double rear chain sockets, one for street and the larger one for off road.  They came with a chain extenior. My older brother won one when Honda of Orlando came to Fla. as a grand opening.
