Things have been so busy lately I just haven't had time to update the blog. I usually do it as a way of clearing my mind during my lunch break or right after I get to work to kind of get me up and running for the day. But lately, I've been so busy that I've had several days where I haven't left my chair from the time I come in around 7am until I leave around 4:30pm. The end of our fiscal year always brings with it challenges, but this year has been especially busy.
Anyway, on to our big news. We have a new addition to our.... family?, collection?, home?. Yes we've gotten... ANOTHER CAR! 1 week ago now, a big truck came a delivered a not-so-new 1969 Corvette - Brian's Dream Car. He was like a little kid at Christmas waiting for it to arrive. Unfortunately, he had to spend last weekend in Birmingham doing his weekend camp for the Air National Guard, and he didn't get to play with it. But every night this week he's gone out to the garage to play with it for a few and sit in it. He is very excited and very happy to finally have the one thing he's always wanted (except for me of course!). He has wanted an old Corvette the whole time I've known him, and I had to promise that he'd have one someday (before he was 30) before we could get married.
Here are some of the pictures we have so far. We have much work to do before it is restored to all its original glory. I'm told that we will be doing a full, body-off restoration. But all that will happen in due time. For now, we have just a little work to do in order to get it running (safely) and out on the road for the occasional Sunday drive. Perhaps part of that will happen this weekend.
