Here's my problem why it started running rough , the vacume line cap came off . Runs good now , checked a few plugs and never seen them so clean and only down a half a quart of oil . Not bad for all those " hammer down " miles and that its 36 yrs old .

Wow thats good ya found it so fast, I got lucky last year going to meet Elwood Soul for the gig and car was running like hell. I happened to mess w/ all the plug wires and sure enough the car began to idle perfect. It wouldnt stay there so I got one wire from a parts store,
I know but I was real broke back then, but that did the trick.

Hello All!!!! Had to re-register for this forum.
Looks like the gathering this year was fantastic. The pictures are great. Seems as if everyone had a blast. I feel bad that I missed it, but just like a few others, next year will be here before you know it. I'd love to have another Blumo to cruise to Illinois. For some reason, once the Monaco gets under your skin, it never goes away. Probably the best car I've ever owned.
Don't get me wrong, I really, really like my 1982 Trans Am (future Knight Rider replica), but the Blumo is just plain fun. Locals still seem to remember me only by my Blumo.
Ken Dunn and his 91 CHP Ford was supposed to be my ride out this year, but family concerns kept him (and me) from attending. I talked to him today and he told me that he received a call not just wondering what happened to him, but curious about my attendance. That says a lot about you folks. I know you have been waiting patiently for me to attend and ATTEND I WILL!
The Blumo hobby is full of wonderful people, more so than any other activity I've taken part in, and just wait till I show up in Chicago - non-stop fun awaits! Thanks again for everything you all have done. Keep adding pictures - I'm loving every single one of them.
Nathan, great to hear from you! Welcome to the new forum; I look forward to meeting you and chatting in person at one of the next Chicago events! And one of those times, I might have my blumo there, sporting the padded dash from your Monaco!
