    Back to Work

    After years of neglect from moving and working too much I have restarted the restoration on my '69 Sprite. I bought her back in 2009 from the original owner. Getting the garage organized to start working.

    Just going part by part best I can. Empty shell to driving car hopefully sooner rather than later. Thankfully I seem to have only lost hardware here and there xD, but almost all parts I took off are parts I kept.

    Re: Back to Work

    I've been attempting to tidy the garage so we can actually park a car in it this winter. Still haven't found the cordless phone or the watch that went missing out there a few months back; found parts I didn't know I had (hoping to start reassembling a Bugeye this winter). Thank goodness we found the elephant before she made too big of a mess. Doug

    Back in the days of elephant jokes, I believe that folks would hire elephants to stomp them; I don't think they ate them. Doug
