Nope. All over CA before moving to NC. I visited NYC once :D

Re: Let's blow this popsicle stand!

Hey Joe, I haven't lived on or near Jerome Park Reservoir, but I'm sure we've communicated about 124s over the years. Only sedan I've had (and have) is Carl/Don's former '74 track day car. I did have a '72 wagon back in the 1998-1999 timeframe or so, which got parted out when I picked up the '68 wag...

Re: Let's blow this popsicle stand!

Congrats Court! Good luck at the new job and with the move. Remember, put the heavy stuff in the back first I had to restrain myself from weighing boxes and building a spreadsheet to determine proper loading of the Uhaul trailer. ;) It worked out ok anyway, heh. The car stuff and equipment might re...

Wow! Sue and I have a condo in Arlington, MA so maybe we can intersect somewhere up there sometime. Looking forward to hearing about the new gig, too!
You bet, Mike! It would be great to see you both. Maybe I'll have some good work stories by then ;)

Re: Let's blow this popsicle stand!

Good luck Courtney! That is a bold move, especially having started in CA, right? On the other hand, life is an adventure. Guess we won’t be meeting up to ride bikes around here. Thanks, Chris! Yeah, I'm a long way from CA... But new experiences are a good thing. Don't count out the bike rides. I'm ...

Re: Let's blow this popsicle stand!

I was hoping to get a bit further along completing some of the car projects before moving but no such luck. I'm trying not to think about the shop move too much... It certainly is daunting!

Let's blow this popsicle stand!

I always figured I'd be heading west again at some point, but after a little over 10 years in the South, a surprise job opportunity has given me reason to try out a new corner of the country. Loaded my junk and two cats and had fun moving with a 2WD pickup and U-haul trailer through the snow to Esse...

Re: Blocked Out License Plate #'s

But the artist in me gags at pictures of cars with crudely blacked out license plates, did they get their four year old kid to do it? Even worse is the pictures with the photographer's hand carefully located to "block" the license plate, how much work does that take? I think I'd worry more every ti...

Great points Court. Thanks for the sober analysis.
Perhaps we should ask "Isaac" for his thoughts too?
You might want to save it for the next Oregon campfire chat. I bet you'll get a long, off the record reply :D

Re: Garage building thoughts, aesthetics & ultimate shop layout

Chris, congrats on breaking ground! I'm just catching up on this whole thread and it's been fun to see the evolution of the project. I've been operating out of a 1200 sq ft shop (about 400 office/bathroom, 800 shop) for the last 10 years. It's typical industrial condo construction with insanely tall...
