    If you have a mechanic you trust why not have him look it over
    The key is someone you can trust

    Is that Lucas Oil fuel additive the same as Sta-Bil? That's a gas stabilizer that helps A LOT when fuel is not used much. I use it for my lawnmower gas, and I no longer have to "run the gas out" at the end of the season. Great product.

    Honestly, just detail work, blech white the tire walls, admiral the dash, etc. Is I can think of.
    Those are noticeable.

    Get a cover for it? It'd make all that hard work you did last a bit longer. Just a thought.

    oh... Grease Lightening hub caps! Be sure to add that soundtrack to moms music selection.

    Good on you GoodTexan. When i'm back home visiting, which isn't enough, I shuttled my folks everywhere I can, mostly chemo, lawyers, shopping, dog walking (ok, that's for me), car washing... just to spend every moment with them. I miss them. Some of my brothers have been "nurtured" a bit too much & can't see to help out although they still live under my parents roof. geeesh.

    You could install a modern stereo receiver with LCD screen (if a double DIN will fit) and install a license plate holder type back up camera wired to the receiver. That way, she would have modern electronic conveniences like back up visibility, bluetooth phone, options for music, etc.

    But she may be at an age and have a lack of interest in such things.

    I am shopping around to do those things to my hunting rig which I also use to tow a boat and need the back up assistance.

    Tires for sure.
    Those are probably original, and if so, they are done. Rubber dries out, and you can't tell by looking at it. Till a belt comes through the tread on the highway.

    ha ha - you are all such wonderful sons! I would change all the radio stations to meaningless frequencies that give nothing but noise. I would change all the seat and steering wheel settings and the mirrors, too.... set the radio, fan, air-conditioner etc to all go on at once, and the radio too, of course - real loud and nothing but noise!

    sweethearts! you are all just so sweet!

    I'm not sure why you're assuming the new tank of gas will last so long. With the way it looks, she may be in it every day!

    Well done!
