Thank the heavens for air conditioning!
The Jeep (Gort),
had to go in for an oil change, and tire rotation. When he was ready, we took Mr. Kirkpatrick the 1964 Thunderbird to pick up Gort.
Mr. K has original air conditioning that's 52 years old, and it works! We drove to the dealer to get Gort with the windows and vents open in Mr. K. We burnt our hands on the chrome door handles getting into the vintage car, and on the transmission lever, and steering wheel! After dropping John off at the dealer, I used the A/C in Mr. K for the drive home, and it was working very well on recirculation mode. (I read in the car's manual that over 89 degrees one should use that mode. It was 105 outside.)So,old Freon circulating through Mr.K's air-conditioning still works, not as good as Gort's, but it works.
