Re: My Facetruck thread.

Do you guys restore stuff? You know, just stuff. I always have gotten pleasure from taking a thing and giving it a freshen up. I use these screens in my small laundry room windows. I painted the room and added shelves, gave the room a thorough going over. So when it came time to open the windows I got to looking at those hardware store screens that have kept bugs out since '87 and thought, "I can make those look better". A couple minutes here, couple there, and I have freshened up screens... Whoopee!

A small thing but I need to do this. I haven't restored a vehicle in years and I miss it. Restoring a vehicle is a whole lot of small restoration projects roped into one. I've restored my vintage steel lawn furniture, the wood rockers and bench on the front porch, bird houses/feeders, and other small things around here lately. Just something to do with a little something to show for my time

Re: My Facetruck thread.

Washed the 77 . I hate to do it but I need to thin the herd . This and 68 are going this summer. Not money but I have 9 cars with hagerty ins. Just to much to keep up with when I posted the truck someone asked about the combo. Why is it I end up with unusual a Huskey 72 and a 77 with special two tone

The 61 is his and he is watching me work on our El Camino in Columbus OH
John is doing the chemo, but it don't look good. One of our friends had a little impromptu car show this afternoon in John's honor. John truly enjoyed it.

Re: My Facetruck thread.

Larry, I think Amazon is building a DC in central TN. They have several going IIRC. A girl that used to work here at FedEx works for them now. She called my brother about a job working for them, but he ended up taking another one.

Re: My Facetruck thread.

I'll do quite a bit for my crew but not sure about the eating bugs part, the throwing up would be easy tho if I get past step 1

thinking he'll just get his chicken feed every other Tuesday like the rest of us

this guy hung around the yard for about 6 months and just disappeared, we all miss him.. he would just walk in my office like he owned the place
