Sadie is One Rotten Girl

Taking next week off to tackle the floor. From the Patch Blue Ribbon entry you can see I’ve already chopped a lot out and started making patch templates, but here are a couple of shots of the original damage. See below how much rot she really has.

The pics below show her just about as chopped back as I dare to go. This is going to be a pop rivet, weld, and POR 15 cloth job. I just need her to last another ten years. Ha.

Ok, not about Volvos but the ‘Burban this is on is Dead.

I also thought this was pretty special:

New Storage

I finally for some external storage for the nicest members of the fleet. Both the 444 and the 1800 fit nose-to-nose in a 10 x 30 in nearby Pawtucket.

Just so happy to have my home garage back.
Blurry Minky. Clutching his head?

Police Station (the car)

’61 122S from Norway (Swedish instrumentation!) Could use a motor. This spring.

Patch Blue Ribbon

Using cardboard for patch templates. Wish it could stay this way.

Behind the grease cap lies an unexpected treat.

Lo and behold Hope’s anchor, the symbol of Rogue’s Island.
