Tempting

 Jen and Andy were driving around.


LOOK what they found.  Andy started it for us...Far Guy told him how to start it.  Jen gave us a full tour via facetime.  It needs new brakes or they would have taken us for a ride! 

It is an awesome old car.  

Far Guy is tempted...and I support his decision what ever that will be. 

He said "What would we do with it?"  I answered...drive around on Sunday afternoons...and  make out in the backseat.

  2. Absolutely! I really do wish I had something like this to drive my hubby around. He can't drive anymore, but this would certainly peak his interest! Some would say it was a waste of money, however money can buy beautiful and fun memories while it can't do much but sit there in an account!
    Make out in the back seat! Yes!
    This made my heart happy this morning.

  3. Our neighbors across the street - - the husband and buddies restore old cars like that and go to car shows a LOT! Evidently many people in Cleveland TN enjoy the same passion because in the summer time, they close the downtown streets for the opportunity to park your old car and then go look at others.
    I remember how big the bench seats were in the old cars. The back window - - we would take turns as kids lying up there and looking out at the street lights and stars at night.
    Your kids probably know about

    Check them out for car parts - - both new and older cars. They are a great deal. The mechanics around here us them frequently. Prices are amazingly economical. (I do Not get any commission from them. We just like them.)

  5. Well, yes, why not. Be kids again on Sunday afternoons. My first car was a big old 1964 Chevy Impala. I loved that car.

  7. When my husband graduated in 1975 I bought him his dream car for his graduation present. $50 for a 1957 Chevy in need of restoration. At first it was the expense of newlywed, a down payment on a house, five babies in seven years. Now I realize that it is the journey, not the completion. It is still in the garage. At this point it is totally disassembled again, completely stripped of all paint, I'm not sure where the seats are . . .

  9. You Kids and your Fancy Cars.... I LOVE going to small towns and walking around those "Coffee and Cars" events. You never know what you will find. Old and new, bad and awesome. Project cars that mean nothing to anyone except the person who found it. ( One guy tracked down his first Truck, found it in a farmer's field. Restored it to its "brand New" glory...So fun!)

  10. That's a beauty. Dave has 2 - a '67 Dodge Charger, and a '67 Pontiac Bonneville convertible.
    One word of warning, classic cars are money pits. You're always spending money on something for them. But if they bring you joy, I say go for it!

  11. I'm surprise that "make out in the backseat" didn't make him buy it on the spot!!! LOL

  12. That's a beautiful old car. What year is it? Maybe 1960? In any event, I hope you buy it, even if it ends up being a planter! :-)

  13. Bahahahahaha! Maybe by next Sunday we will have heard... and you'll probably keep part of that to yourself. 🤣🤣🤣 Jerry and I always go to the vintage/hot rod shows on Main Street here in our town. Of course those aren't being held this year. I grew up next door to a guy who built hot rods from scratch and did so all his life. Sadly he died last December, but his memorial service was a big event dedicated to his lifetime work on those cars... the church parking lot and all along the streets everyone who knew him brought their vintage and hot rod cars in honor of him. // We await to hear about Far Guy's decision lol.

  14. I love old cars! They really take me back. When I was a kid we had one in that 60's aqua color with fins. They were like tanks and didn't even have seat belts! You will have fun with it if you get it!

  18. Yes! I definitely think that you should get the car and make out in the backseat! That's something you're NEVER too old for!!!!

  19. Cool car!!! I am always amazed at how big the steering wheels were back then! There must be a car-buying bug up there in your neck of the woods! LOL!

  20. Catching up on blog reading: I love this car! I also love the rudbeckia FG carved. Cannot wait to see it painted. I'm sorry you won't be attending the retreat this year. I always look forward to your photos from that weekend. I'll be interested to read what you decide to work on at home. Wishing you two a nice day. Mildred
