They just seek me out and jump into my garage.
This time a 64 Morris Minor woody complete with most of a 65 or 66 Sprite parts pile.
But I did NOT buy it.
My daughter in law bought it for my son's 30th birthday.
Besides, they have been looking for a family car since she is expecting in early July and need a family truckster.
Something about the Sprite child seat I gave her for the baby shower just didn't cut it. :( but for the 5 block trip from their house to mine,
the Sprite baby seat will be just fine :)
So Does anybody on this list know anything about Minors?
I already know about the engine ;) but Jr wants to put a modern drivetrain in it. Jap of course, toyota or nissan.
Power brakes as it will be the little lady's main transport with the child. Hey it has a back seat for the child safety seat and 2 barn doors in the back for the grocerys.
The car needs floors, where do I get them?
I know a good carpenter to replace all the wood so that's not a problem.
Other than that, it's very straight, no dents, no upper end rust and all the glass is there.
Some one fiberglassed the floors years ago and they rusted under the glass, they're pretty rough but there.
Another father/son project. And I didn't quite finish the 69 when a new project arrives.
