I'd take a short walk two doors down to that sports bar next to his shop. Not that I don't trust Jack, but certain things I prefer not to watch. 8)

Haha, that's Mulligan's. I recommend the fish tacos, they’re surprisingly delicious.

Meet Frank and his 59 sunroof coupe. Originally silver but repainted blue (kinda a cross between Atena and Sky Blue). A lot of lead in all the original places is coming through, which I think adds to the overall charm of the car. Frank’s had this car for decades and it’s been waiting to be brought back from garage status to driver status for a little over 20 years. Raising 2 kids, working full time, other projects, etc. you guys know the drill. Anyway, Jack’s been working on getting this car up and going and yesterday it did it’s first run around the block.

Frank is stoked! Jack’s pretty happy too.

Matt brought his 52 interim bumper Coupe in for some routine service work. Jack thought people might like to see some more details of this old car. Btw, if anyone is holding a rusty crusty barnacle covered bumper guard we’d like to compare it against the one that Matt has for originality.

I think the cars are talking to each other again. 2 white 912’s showed up, unplanned. (I hope the pics post rightside up, not rotated 90 degrees). Webmaster - Can you please help if they don’t post correctly?
