  • Fresh from 2 successful repairs yesterday I launched into working on the Porsche projectcar. Speed racer jr is home so he helped me get the Miata started and moved around a little. So if your tracking that means 67 % of the red cars are moving under their own power .

    • I wiped off the Porsche dust and spent yesterday clearing the work bench. I placed the bags of parts on the work bench and found the nuts and washers I needed to secure the crankshaft. Things were going so smoothly. Then I noticed one of the nuts was missing. Since I have many extra parts I began the hunt for the missing bolt. While looking for the extra Porsche part collection I ran into the soft top I have been planning to add to the s2000. I launched into the top project. Part way into the project it started to Rain. I abandon the hard top project . At this point I was not feeling very successful toward meeting my goal of having the Porsche engine reinstalled by dinner. I began to cleanup the mess. By chance I found the extra Porsche part collection and quickly found the nut I needed . Now feeling victorious for the day I finished cleaning up.

          • Time to go solo.
            Happiness is a nice road, great weather, and driving the S with Sue in the seat next to me.

            I know for a FACT that the last year of production of the S2000 is 2003!!!!!
            After that, it will be the S2200 under an assumed name.

            • I took the red truck out of storage yesterday, washed it, then went to a car meet to show it off. Today I replaced a turn signal bulb and put it back in storage. It had been nearly two years since I drove it and it was nice getting behind the raw power of the mighty 22RE.

                • My Red Car repair isn’t even on the horizon at this point. We’re either going to move to a house with a massive garage or end up building on my property. There are at least four vehicles we need to get garaged, if not more. The yellow car will most likely be running before my red car will be ready again.

                    • I’m fighting dragons along the way. Sometimes they take me off the path, sometimes they push me back. Yet my spirit remains strong. I ask the king for funds to fight the dragons. Sometimes the kings coffers are dry and sometimes he can help.

                      • Not only dragons but things that are darker. Demons that suck you onto the couch and hold you there to watch Netflix shows.

                          • I don’t do Netflix and I don’t binge-watch any TV show. I’m lucky if I see two shows a week. I have band rehearsals, dance lessons, family dinners and more dragons than you can shake a stick at. It’s all good, yet some dragons take longer to slay.

                            • I am thinking about taking red car vacations where I just work on my car as much as I want.
