They are parking spaces. I could fit my car inside of one of those.

That's interesting. Not really surprising, but it sounds like something a simple letter-writing campaign could influence. Because everybody hates how bright headlights are these days, it seems like an easy win for any politician.

Stripped to the bare metal and treated.
Getting panels lined up.
Going to mock up the major engine components in the engine bay soon... just to make sure things will fit properly.
Some bodywork.
Very slowly getting ready for paint.

I'll Remove it. The only thing worse than auto play is, well, auto play with accents.

I've never been a car enthusiast, so the fascination/obsession was lost on me.  Making matters worse, my sister was married to a MOPAR fanatic.  They purchased a warehouse and stocked it full of cars, parts, signs, tools, and just about anything else you could think of.

Then he went from being home with no signs of a long-term illness he dealt with 20 years ago to being dead in a week.

My sister now has a bunch of cars, and parts, and signs, and tools, etc... to get rid of.  The cars are all in excellent condition, and his collection includes:

1956 Dodge C3 Service Truck was Bell Tel converted to Texaco tribute vehicle, PS added, 3 on the tree, flathead 230 ci 6 cyl 1 brl 115 HP

1964 Chrysler 300K, v series Convertible - 413 ci, 360 hp V8 4 barrel, dual exhaust, sequoia green, 2nd owner - numbers matching, Govier decoded (June 14, 1998)

1965 Plymouth Sport Fury Convertible (replica) Pace Car - 383ci, V8, 4 barrel, factory air- white with red interior

1966 Dodge 426 Hemi Charger- 1 of 2 (lacquer Mauve Metallic), Hemmings Concours d’elegance (invited twice), die-cast and featured in several David Newhardt books

1969 Plymouth GTX Convertible w/ factory air - least optioned vehicle on Brian Kapral’s 69 GTX registry (a/o 3/21: Buckets, no console or buddy seat)

Those descriptions are from her...not me...so I assume all of that makes sense to folks who know.  The few people I've spoken with seem pretty jazzed about them.

So here's the hard part...

Selling them feels like she's selling her dead husband's pride and joy.  His essence.  One of those cars he's had for 40 years.  She can't even really go to the warehouse, because it's where he spent most of his free time and it just reminds her that he's dead.  It's brutal.



That's a tough one. I know people who have had a really hard time getting rid of parents' stuff. 

One thing for your sister is to think about how those cars should really be with someone who loves them and her spouse would probably approve of moving them on.

It's a local news link but I dont want it to jack the thread.

Doesn't auto play here so I'm not sure. I'm just using Chrome.

It just happened again when I clicked here...and is apparently happening to at least one other.

I was using Firefox.  When I use Chrome...it doesn't "jack the thread".
