Joe Kennedy requires a new Nick name

Well, we all were having a great time during our "New Year's Run", until sadness and concern invaded our good and gentle hearts, when we saw our good friend, Pookie (Joe Kennedy), stranded at one of the intersections, in the Rock Creek Parkway. Oh yes, we were all worried, and in my case, I called him to verify that he made it home safe and sound, which he did, and I was very relieved. I asked him what was the cause of his break down, and he did not tell me, or he did not WANT to tell me at that moment. Today, during our lunch at the Brough, he finally came clean, and told me the reason of his "break down". It was not a break down, HE DID RUN OUT OF GAS!!
As Chipper suggested, I would agree that Joe Kennedy's new nick name should be "THE GAS MAN". This, by the way, is very appropriate, given the fact that he is also called CROP DUSTER for a very valid reason as well.

WELL GAS MAN, I AM CERTAIN THAT FROM NOW ON, YOU WILL FILL UP BEFORE GOING ON A CRUSE.

Peace be with you brother!!

Thanks Buddy,
My fuel gauge doesn't work, so I use my trip odometer to estimate remaining fuel.
Accordingly, I should have had another 100+ miles in the tank.
While we were at the capitol, one of the bystanders told me that he thought
he saw a Cuban immigrant siphoning gas from my car.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.:moon:

When I first got the car, I used the odometer as well. Estimated I was getting 10 mpg. I was wrong, more like 8. :oops: So, right before I called the flat bed, I thought, maybe I should check the gas tank. The aluminum wasn't even damp. I called the wife instead and have since used the calibrated eyeball. ;)

I would like to propose a "GAS RECOVERY SYSTEM", which will consist of a flex 2.5" flex hose connected to your anus, recovering every cubic inch of high octane "flatus gases", and having the hose discharge right on top of the carburetor of your Cobra. All you have to do regularly if to ingest a healthy ammount of beans.Just think, all the money you would be saving.

Would that be considered fuel injection or supercharging ?
In either case, I get better results from cabbage rolls.
