Time to Refresh the Look

I decided to change to looks of the blog a little bit… still playing with it.

I also dropped “Restoration” from the title. The new title is The 1973 Karmann Ghia Project. This really isn’t a restoration of a 73. It’s not even going to look like a 73 when it’s done. Maybe it should be Resto-mod project??? We’ll see.

For now, I’ll leave it be.

Happy Holidays to the VW Community

2020 has definitely been an interesting year, for some more than others. I have experienced challenges and personal losses this year, as have many. At the end of the day, our five kids have remained healthy and bored to insanity with at-home learning.

Let’s welcome in 2021 with this joyful number from the kiddos.

Be Well, My Friends!

With all this COVID-19 crap going on, I hope you all healthy and doing well. Perhaps when all of this is done and life gets back to “normal” I can get a little something started on the Ghia.

Until then, be safe!

It’s Official!

After 2,324 days and 1,246 spams blocked by Akismet, the restoration is officially underway!

After discussing with my beautifully lovely better two-thirds, we have come up with a plan and means have been made available to get this project underway. That’s right… fewer garage and other car posts and more about getting down to it. Trust me, I know it’s been a long time coming, but everything in my life happens at the right time when it needs to happen (my main squeeze taught me that).

So without further ado, I have made my first purchase for the project. Since my garage is small and the car isn’t mobile, I have to have a way to move it around. I ordered these wheel dollies this morning to help with just that.

I also hung up the “to do” dry eraser board.

Stay tuned my friends…
