After cruising down the road at a pretty good clip and climbing a fairly steep hill at speed, we suddenly smelled burning oil. A turn of the head confirmed our sense of smell when we saw white smoke billowing out the back of the ’56. It turns out that the seal on the oil filter had been sitting a while and was dry or cracked and a little oil was shooting out and hitting the MagnaFlow exhaust. A quick trip to the parts store and a parking lot oil filter swap got us back on the road.
