    Can't see the snow from where I'm standing. So I guess it's all good. Lol! Of course, if I were to look at the window that changes.
    My daughter swears it's up there but I can't see it. Just all over my face. Everywhere I shave, it's snowing heavily. So when she gave me that business I told her I just wouldn't cut the hair on top anymore, and then no more white would come. Funny thing about age. Even uncut, it won't grow long. Not that it's short, but it just stopped a couple inches below the shoulders and hasn't gotten any longer in the past few years. Haven't been able to figure out how to disengage the throttle governor on it.

    New addition to "The Family". My daughter's Boyfriend decided that he liked her car so much that he'd buy one too. Another with the HTF red leather interior. Now in Black! '87 with a Sunroof and also power antenna in addition to all the usual expected options. Runs GREAT! Especially for a G, and came with a battery bought just earlier this year... Underside is Very Clean as expected of a late 80's car that wasn't driven in winter, excepting our getting it home now on a good day where road salt wasn't even an issue. Of course "the old man" (me) just HAD to grab the two parts cars that had already lived out their lives prior to the previous owner acquiring this creampuff for his summer driver, for scrap value too. But now we're waiting for the weather to co-operate again to go get those. They're a little worse off than my daughter's year round driven car, which she's already tagged a deer with if you look closely. But they'll assuredly extend the lives of others with their platform parts. Even the worst one has a Red interior! But I'm REALLY not about to go grab them in -6 with winds directly off the lake that's merely yards away and haul a trailer home to hook them up to the truck to rip them loose even if it is only less than a ten mile haul.

    Well the wind died down late last night, so now's the time to haul some cars. I sometimes wish I had a car trailer, I would travel for a few things I've seen on the web. But then would have to try and explain to the wife why the yard is full of cars.

    Yeah the wind gave up here too. Barely felt cold as long as I kept moving. So after being outside most of the morning in the teen temps without even longjohns I contacted the seller about getting the worse of the parts cars. A buddy offered we could use the ramp truck he bought last year to haul his racecar. So hauling a car is what happened. No keys, busted balljoint and 4 flats. But it went right up and slid right back off. Ugliest 5thA I've ever had. At least I won't have it long. Wouldn't have bothered but for as nasty as it looks it does have some solid underside and some good interior parts.

    Most recent news I have is to update the previous parts car being gone now and all items of use salvaged. And the next one ready to get the same deal. This next one has smooth shiny paint underneath so I expect to get even more out of it's platform shared parts.
