I’m going to attempt to clean up my shop a little today.
She could have. She will have fun with the convertible seats. They will involve leopard print….
Hey!! I did white diamonds!!!:D
I didn’t get my shit together to send the seat cover off the front seat in my convertible this year. Next fall I’ll pull it when I park it for...
Welcome to modern gas. All my old cars do it.

Probably a little bit of both….
The coldest I’ve worked in,(back when I worked outside) was -50 Celsius…I’m too old for that nonsense now!
Hell that’s been the high for the last week. It get down to -39 or-40 at night..
