One important thing for those traveling to and around Florida. Florida has Toll Roads so you may want to keep a small pile of change handy in you car.

Thanks for the reminder, Joe!

I will be there I live near Orlando.... I suggest bringing lots of change for the toll roads, make sure your a/c is working, and bring a sun shade for your window because the sun will dry out your dash quick in June

I have emptied the contents of my piggy bank on the floor of the car, that should be enough.  ;D My H/O's A/C has never worked since it was not born with one. The heck with the sun shade I am going full on car cover.   8)

My A/C worked for 4 days...but is now low on freon.   :(  It hasn't worked since I've had it, so it's just what I'm used to, but the hubby is pretty disappointed about it!  Oh, well, we'll survive...hopefully...  ;)

Has the car been converted to 134a?  If so, Walmart sells a AC sealant you can add to the system.

Oh, the joys of owning a classic car.  Don't worry, someday you will laugh at this situation!  <Sarcastically> ----Not!

It has not been converted.  We had it charged with R12 on Monday, and it's already low.  Oh well, we didn't know if it would even hold a charge at all when we had it done, so we'll just have to work on it more at some point.  Looking forward to seeing you all in a few days!   :)

Oh, I've been a member for quite some time now - the A/C has never worked.  Was just hoping to let my membership lapse for this year!   ;)  Guess that will just go back on the list of things that need to be done to it.  Has anyone else ever noticed that they're never "done"?!

For those of you who are traveling from out of state and are not flying or sneaking in on I-10 from Alabama you will be going thru Georgia. I just wanted to let you know of the Georgia DOT website known as Georgia Navigator http://www.511ga.org/
Please use this to help you find out where wrecks, road construction, and any other nasty road related things are lurking in the Peach State. Hope this helps those of you who are connected.
