‎"D'oh" moment of the day.  My Newport was mis-firing on #5 and 8.  I checked the jets on my carb - clean.  I pulled the plugs and found one bad wire (5) and one fouled plug (8).  Chris "the Doctor" suggested it could be vacuum.  One new plug and two new wires later - same problem.  AAArrrgh!  Then I saw it - missing vacuum cap on the brake booster.
 
Chris is good!

OK, but I will be in So. Cal.  With my lousy cell phone, if I don't get your call I will get your message - maybe!  I'll be back in the Office on Monday afternoon - we know that phone works.

Our show is held at a museum of old homes and buildings.  It makes for very good pictures.  Every person in the show gets a picture of their car.
