…waiting for you to get busy restoring them. There was a time in my life when I had “spare time”.
Spare Time is something that is available after you have managed to do everything you need and should do. That includes all honey-do’s, yard care, house maintenance and restoring or rebuilding ALL your current projects…Then…and only then will spare time magically appear.
Armed with spare time you can now restore more cars…like these:
CA black plated ’65 or ’66 Cadillac 2 door hard top makes for a great ride.
190 Benz or 280 sedan, take your pick. One of the few cars that retains that famous Mercedes thunk when closing a door even on a well worn example. Love it. How about an LS powertrain in that sedan but all stock on the outside? Works for me…
1959 Lincoln with parts car. If you feel like blocking out six feet of quarter panels or spending $2,000.00 in material alone this is the car for you.
How about a Triumph? Bottom line: No lack of projects out there to fill your spare time!
We are starting a new category: Time Machine.
Sometimes I roll in to a town where time just stood still. This is the Admiral’s Cove pool house on Whidbey Island, Washington state. I don’t think it has been “up-dated” since the fifties and that’s a good thing. As a matter of fact, if a movie maker needs a pool house for back drop in a fifties movie they would not have to change a thing.
This is North City north of Seattle, a part of Seattle that was forgotten.
Just a quick drive in North Seattle extends the time travel. Here an early 60′s GMC truck is just sitting in the driveway as any daily driver.
Another daily driver…just sitting and looking good…How about a nice straight Mercury Cougar?
Not your Editor’s cup of tea but a nice Nova waiting for some action maybe with a new owner.
A Dodge panel truck used by a coffee shop. Sure beats some dented up van, huh?
The owner of the coffee shop also kept the vintage feel for the new signage. Way to go!
OK, back to 2012 and reality…we will go back again.
