I thought I would provide an update on the current status of all of the cars in the NMC garage (mostly so I can look back and say “Oh yeah, I already did that” next year when I go to perform miscellaneous tasks). Continue reading “Need More Cars Garage Update”
Sometimes I perform jobs in the garage that may not be quite as technical as others. I might do something that requires no tools whatsoever.

My 1971 Corvette will see some fairly hot weather. We intend to drive it down to Napa, CA next summer.
