Say it's not so. I love being the first so here it goes. We own "Wood", a 1976 GB that has given us so many memories last camping season. Woody doesn't like to start at gas stations. I do not know much about carburetors so one time I did not give enough gas. Took me 12 times finally it kicked over. Meanwhile I"m calling previous owner we just bought from half hour ago. What a relief. The last time we were up north at a gas station b/c of a loose battery terminal it didn't turn. We towed it all the way home and the wife, kids and dog drove home with in-laws in their Buick Rendezvous. Yep. Now we laugh. But I taught the boys to ride their bikes at the campground and we made an apple pie from scratch the same day.

One time at a gas station I filled it up and heard this horrible trickling sound. I look under and there is gas falling to the ground. Now this is the first time I filled it up full so I was thinking 'oh great a leak'. And to make matters worse a gas attendant who are almost never outside just happened to be there picking up trash. She turned and gasped. I was afraid she call hazmat. As it turned out I investigated and there is a gas overflow at the neck of the tank. I pinched it and stopped it. There are many more stories to come.
