Off to the Car Wash

The engine bay was corroded with 40 years of road grime and grease from the leaky oil burning 390, so we decided to tow the car to the local car wash this morning to pressure wash it. Tow vehicle was Tim's 1985 Isuzu Trooper, and I think the tow straps were about that old. We only had to tow it about 2 1/2 miles, but it's a busy 4-lane highway. The strap broke twice, once coming out of my neighborhood and once at the traffic light coming back, but otherwise the adventure was uneventful. As you can see from the photo, it doesn't look anywhere near new, but it looks much better than it did. We are going to try to get the engine bay painted within the next week or so.
