I'm Back...
« on: September 05, 2010, 06:50:47 PM »

been away for awhile.....work and looking for a new place to live have taken up all of my time.

After helping finish the interior of a Muntz Jet at the resto shop, we dove into the Pebble Beach cars....an original Pierce Arrow woody wagon with matching Pierce Travelodge trailer (car needed to be cleaned up, a new roof and side curtains), and a 34 Packard Dietrich V 12 convertible sedan (one of 5 known left). It was many hours and straight weeks before we got the Packard done (it started as an empty shell....we had to make EVERYTHING) but it won Best in Class (among 10 other Packards!).

Any time left was spent looking on the web for a new house. The folks want to move to Boston and I need a place with a workshop. Found a few possibles....will update when something happens.....

Any other time (usually late night after working at the resto shop ) was spent trying to keep the 91 Eldo on the road....I replaced P/S pump, A/C compressor, plugs and wires, exhaust, tires, and anything else that broke at the worst possible time in the last 10,000 miles I put on it.....

Oh yeah....after all the 24/ 7 work on the Packard was through, I got to put the timing chain in the Imperial....everything on the front of the motor is painted and back together....radiator repair is next. Sold the Valiant wagon at a loss this weekend because I can't take it in the move coming up. At least there's work in this lousy economy for the resto biz....and I'm taking whatever comes up

Thanx guys....but the "sense of humor" may be temporarily buried under a massive pile of uncertainty and distraction.......but then who isn't these days?

I agree.  The other is better.  You can separate personal from Biz that way.  Look more professional
