So it looks like, at least for now, I am going to be able to keep the Roadie. Financially we weren't sure if I was going to be able to keep it. We have two kids now and things are tight, but we have made it through maternity leave and we didn't need the money, so it looks like, at least for now, the Roadie can stay in the stable. I at least want to finish all the plans I had for it before I sell it. Its a sweet ride and I love that I get to keep taking care of it for a little while longer.
I completed the DIY home plate and first base delete on my Roadmaster. It looks so much cleaner, sounds better, and runs a bit better too. I am happy with it.
Well the trim isn't new, but it looks new. I bought a roll of light wood-grain vinyl to re-wrap the trim that is on top of the main wood panels. It looks really good. It is simple and clean. I have only done a couple panels so far as I have had very little time this past couple of weeks, but I think it is going to look great.
My fender skirts came in the other day and they look great! They seem to be very well made. I cannot wait to get them painted up.
So big news (for me at least): I just bought bus tickets for me and my dad to Kansas City to buy one of my dream cars. It is a 1994 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon.
I know a lot of people may laugh, but this car is big, comfortable, classy, and powered by a 5.7l LT1 V8. It's the same motor they put in the Corvettes of the era. It's also the last in a long line of full-size, rear-wheel-drive cars made by GM. It is a piece of automotive history.
I have big plans for this baby. I can't wait to have a project to work on again. We are bussing out overnight this Sunday and driving back on Monday so I will keep you posted!
