New Chassis in the House

I can't say enough about how appreciative I am. Jason and his wonderful wife Suzie not only provided the temporary storage space for the S10 but also brought it here to the house on Saturday. The running, driving '91 will provide the new chassis for the '49, which all at once will give us a 4.3 liter V6, 5 speed manual trans, power steering and brakes, ac, heat, and of course the modern era suspension.

Bumper off, work begins

Can't wait to get back behind the wheel. This is gonna be a blast.

Thanks as always for stopping by. See y'all down the road!

Bring On the S10

Finally. After advertising via Craigslist and a used car Facebook group, countless messages from people who asked "Okay, what's wrong with the car?" despite the fact that the ad was very specific, and being blown off completely by two allegedly desperate "buyers" who made appointments but never showed up, the Saturn is gone. She now belongs to a very nice couple from Litchfield, and I truly wish them all the best with it.

7/7/17 - The Saturn heads off to its new home

Now as soon as Jason's schedule allows, we'll bring the S10 here so I can get the chassis cleaned up and some new parts added before it heads down the road to Custom Conversions (Jason's shop here in New Milford, CT) to have the '49 body attached.

Slowly but surely, we're gettin' there. Stay tuned.

Thanks as always for stopping by. See y'all down the road!
