Steel, eh? Interesting. Is mine aluminum? Things are becoming clearer now.

The Channel Lock work I did on the filler and the replacement O-ring on the cap have improved things. But, as the hooptie approaches Corvette-like cornering speeds, even that may reach it's limit. Took some patience to find a serviceable flappy thing. 240 restoration isn't for the faint at heart...

Yeah, so. I hot wheeled around "Dead Man's Corner" today. And got a whiff of high-octane unleaded for my efforts. Stupid car. I need to find one of those steel tubes like Jim suggested. At least the new flappy thing kept the gas out of the interior. #CrushThemAll

So gentle caressing with a crescent didn't cure it completely? Bummer. Time to get a new deal and cap until we can drop your tank and replace your filler

First time to Florida. Loved it. More trees than I expected. Got to stay for three weeks. Irma was less severe than expected, so that was nice. Got to catch up with a fellow "Bricker" while I was there. Only thing I was bummed about was not seeing an alligator.

Yeah, Floridia is interesting. On my first trip down there a Sandhill Crane almost hit his feet on our heads of the convertible we were driving as the crane was flying about 12 ft high over the road, crazy.

I know where there are some Gators

Ha!

Wish I would have had time to check the fort at St Augustine. I did cruise Daytona and rolled by the speedway. Just imaging the sloshing fuel leak my 245 would have on those banked corners with my foot to the wood... LOL. I would like to see their museum.
