    I didn't know it was a long distance relationship. Those are difficult to maintain.;)

    The great benefit was I wasn’t over there weekly being annoying asking “is it finished yet?” Made things go better.

    car is in Indiana, I’m in Washington, checks are in between

    I had a thing for Alpines since I saw one for the first time after a lousy winter in Toronto 1961. I toyed with the idea of getting an MGC, TR250 or TR5, but kept coming back to the Sunbeams. Mine are highly modified and I chuckle when someone comes up and says “I had one just like this in 196? Same color and everything.”

    fyi-love my Tacoma. My Alpines are great but my Tacoma is as reliable as gravity.

    Me too I miss my '35 but the money came in handy for bills while I missed 11 weeks of work for knee replacements.I'm 6'1" so I'm not sure what I will fit in for a toy .my friend has a '60 MGA which is pretty good for me so we'll see what happens

    One of my friends is building a '39 Nash into a beach buggy, He sold it 20 years ago and the guy did nothing with it so he bought it back and put it on a '85 Chevy pickup short bed chassis exact wheelbase .its cool.

    Well…. It finally got home and once I get it aligned and a few bugs (I knew about) worked out, this thing will be great.

    Pix to follow.
