First pix was at our dog-park from my son's old Dart, the second was indeed from our porch.

Only about a foot in Colorado Springs but 50 mph winds are making it nasty outside. Lloyd, tell me about your car?

Cobbhead:

It's an ongoing project that my 17-year old son and I have been working on (along with my elk-hunting buddy in Boulder) for the last year or so. 1960 Dart Seneca 2-dr pillar coupe, slant 6, pushbutton auto. It was a basket case that he somehow talked me into (clearly a weak moment on my part). We've had to do just about everything in order to just make it safe to drive (and barely that).

I was test-driving it last week before returning it to my buddy for additional work that we need to do (valve lash, minor leaks, brake adjustment, etc.) before we can start on the bodywork, which is substantial. Virgil Exner-era cars were famous for rust and this one's no-exception.

I think one day you will treasure the time spent with Liam on that project, Lloyd.

Best,
Ted

Brings back memories. My first car was a '61 Plymouth Valiant with a slant 6. Tough little motor.

About two years later I bought a '56 Chevy 210 two-door, and hot-rodding took every penny for the next several years. I don't regret a dollar spent on it. My Dad had a very confining occupation, so we never worked together on my cars. Liam is very fortunate to have a Dad who can do that with him. I love that "Christine look".

What I do regret is selling that '56, when I bought my new '69 Camaro SS.

Stan: It's been the price I paid for hauling him around in his baby seat in the back of another old Chrysler I have. It hasn't been easy, but I suppose nothing worthwhile ever is. This car has been lots of lessons for us both. For me it's been finding patience and "letting go" of things I simply can't control (both very hard for me). For him it's been economic realities and some truly-great physics lessons. It has also clearly been a great "COVID" project for everybody involved and I am immensely grateful for that as well. For everything, there is a season...
