Maybe its just me but, today I woke up early gulpped down some coffee put my Carhartts on and my steel toes, and left the ol' man sleeping so I could go to the shop and meet a guy to view my 70 Firebird i have for sale...I pulled out my spare seats and put back in my tail lights etc and my pillar post cover thingies..he came with his haggard wife and teen aged daughter..I know then I was doomed... no man is going to get a PROJECT firebird when his wife and daughter is present.:dontknow:..so not hoping for a sale I ran him through the speel. showed him my Merc lead sled and then had to explain the chop and swap on it..etc...dig in the mezanine for all the bird parts....

Meanwhile the BF shows up...says hi and gets to his project. the man was suprised I was left to deal with him,maybe he was hoping Chris would talk guy with him..sigh...they left...
got to work wire wheeling rust,sanding the garnish mouldings and then prepping inner fenders for a GMC 51 ish truck we are selling....POR 15'd it....vacummed out mice nest in truck made the windows purdy...yup just a day in this girls life.... tomorrow,removing the front fenders to put the inner fenders back in with the old man...and other various things...
It's lonley being a car girl....but wouldn't have it any other way.........

Welcome Sandy, and a BIG TEXAS HOWDY from another female member!!
I'm happy you found us!
The guys and gals on this site are great, and will make you feel right at home!
My favorite on going "thing" is when I have my Elky in shows or whatever, guys will automatically approach my husband or my son with questions or comments about my car--with ME standing right there! My husband & son now just point to me, and say, "dunno-ask her, it's HER car." I JUST LOVE THAT!! :beer:
