I was down at KCW this morning and there was a VERY nice looking ride in for a quick electrical fix. I got to talking with the owner, and we were doing one of those " don't I know you" conversations when we realized that the car on hand was one that I sold him several years ago. This is a picture of it when I sold it. Hopefully the guys got a pic before it left the shop. HUGE change. Now I want it back !

Franz has a couple cool parkway projects going on... including a NEW bus to our area... and a new customer for Franz, for life... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> Local guy, friend of chips... I honestly think that Franz could own my shop and just do maintenance for locals and those willing to drive for a good reliable tune.. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> I think he could stay busy the rest of his life... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

I feel like a rancher taking care of the heard. Smile

I got Beard's new bus in for some improvements. Tires, broken glass, seat belts, and some other stuff.

Solid strait original riviera camper. White wall tires should be here today.

Gen's 66 beetle has been local for a long time. I remember seeing it drive around town when I was a kid. Long ago, her brother built it up with a 1914cc, dropped spindles, original Porsche 356 wheels, and a vert decklid. She drove it until it was worn out in 2000 and parked it.

This winter she brought it to us to get it back on the road. New brakes and engine rebuild. I removed the engine and sent it to Painter's. The engine was in decent shape, and only cost $1200 to rebuild.

The rear apron and fenders were smashed and cracked. I spent yesterday cleaning, straitening, and welding.

1914cc with all the tricks. Cleaned and rattled can'd tin. I spent some money on a new A1 sidewinder, and new dual empi HPMX carbs(had kads that needed rebuilds). This car is going to sound and run better than it ever has. =D>

Yeh, I retired a while back. Sold the shop tools, equipment, materials, supplies....everything right down to the bare walls. Now spent the last year trying to get geared up again. Quitting damn near killed me....found out I can't not work...plus social security doesn't come anyplace close to covering the monthly nut. ](*,)

Gen's car is coming along nicely. I ran break-in the other night, during which I found a intake leak. The carbs are hitting the fan shroud #-o I have to do a little more sanding on the bases.
