Alright, I've been lurking on the Forums for a bit. Time for introductions. We are located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The Beader has a 1964
22' Safari that she letting me enjoy. Yes, the AS is hers, nicknamed Cat1. Long story how she acquired it, but she has taken very good care of it with the help of friends and a little paid help. The interior has been updated completely by her and some systems have been repaired or replaced.
I'm the boyfriend and I hope to stick around for awhile and not just so I can enjoy the AS. I've been appointed chief driver and backer-upper and chief mechanic.
She's all aesthetics, I'm all mechanics - cars and motorcycles and toys. We both love this thing and hope to keep it on the road for many years to come. We're in our 40s - on the second go around in life and ready for adventure.
We're replacing the axle this weekend to get the running gear in order (the Beader took it to Burning Man last year and came back with tires cupped and burned to the tread threads) heading for Tuscon the first week of Feb. with lots of trips planned for the year.
I'll post pics of the swap out, maybe video even.
Thanks everyone in advance for welcomes and input.
