Spent the day working on the car. I got my early Christmas present on Friday so took time last night and did a little paintings before installation. Got the front suspension completed with 2 in drop spindles . Pretty happy with the outcome. Will need to save up for the rear suspension. I need to find some adjustable upper control arms and debating weather to get drop springs or changing to coil overs. Obviously a big price difference. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Those are pretty. Powder Coating? or just painting?

Exclamation

Well a lot of hoopla about the Snow storm called Carter. we were on the fringes of it about an inch in my driveway.
We were supposed to have a Christmas Party this evening and the folks who were in charge overreacted and canceled the thing.
Unless more snow shows up. We could of had it.
However in Western NE Mullen to be exact they had 14 inches of Snow. It's not the end of the world but you can see it from there.

Good morning guys. We made it up to 60 degrees yesterday! Wife and I did some shopping at a few antique places yesterday and I found some more license plates - 1950 Ohio, 1956 Ohio, 1928 Michigan and four pair of NOS 1970 Michigan in the original sleeves.

Also got the Monte all set on Saturday. See ya in the spring...

Yeah it's hard to trust the TV weather people. They are predicting 5" of snow for us this weekend. That's very unusual for us in December. If I cancel my plans it probably won't snow at all!
