So impressive, I'm filled with envy. You sir have no doubt executed a master plan for your shop. Even my wife hovering over my shoulder says and I quote " are those match box cars under the shelves? It doesn't look real"

Bob isn't allowed to finish his red GT. That's the car he has to use when making various GT parts for me. Maybe I'll give him the F'd up gullwing doors from my new car that I'm going to toss, so that he can put at least half of a sort of roof on it. Ha!

Car #8 is now home. Started as a pretty nice day, and ended up with near-whiteout snow squalls on the drive home. Luckily it was 43 degrees so nothing stuck.

So, #9 made the trip home today. All that remains for big stuff is a parts car and my 8’ sheet metal brake. The brake is 1300 lbs so it needs to be disassembled into 3 pieces and loaded up via my engine hoist. My old barn is getting amazingly sparse.

I also brought up the old C & R Small Cars sign I painted for Carl and Smitty back in 1984. I was 18 years old and had just gotten back from a trip to Germany, and I had a few giant Opel Blitz decals I purchased. I donated one for the sign, and hand painted the rest.

As you once said to me Bob, you must be having a bonerrific set of days getting all this stuff within your reach again. I haven't done too much wrenching lately and it gets to where you miss doing certain things. I did recently buy a 1960 vintage single barrel Weber for my Ghia and rebuilt it and the car is now running with it.
Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing your fabrication skills in action again.
