    Default Closing down shop

    Just a heads up. As of today we are closing down and only shipping kits in stock.
    With luck should reopen around February 1. Just signed the deal on selling our house here in Oregon and have a new one under contract in Greenfield Missouri.
    Have 3 weeks to pack 30 years worth of stuff and sell or move all my cars and wood shop tools.
    The plus is new place already has a fully equipped wood shop.
    thanks

    Hope you like the new(to you) tools as much as your old ones.

    Welcome to the Midwest, Rich.

    Hope the move goes great for you, but I know that the 30 years of accumulation wont be easy. What your car collection??

    I'll find some time and make the drive down to see you, once your settled in.

    That would be great Rodney would be great to meet you. As for the cars down to 3 Corvairs, one 61 Ford Econoline PU, 97 Shelby GLHS and a hot rod Datsun Roadster.
    plus the daily drivers.

    I've always wanted one of those old econolines. There's a badass van of about the same era down in Farmington someone already started customizing. It had big n' littles, side pipes, and coolest of all, Desoto fins on top. Unfortunately, Wifey said no. Actually IIRC, her exact quote was "Oh HELL no. You're not buying THAT."

    Quick update: On third house and they say should close next week. First house did not apprise high enough ( loved the shop) second one we were a day from closing on when we got here was not what they said it was plus had gas leak so we walked. On third one now fingers crossed. Hs no shop so will be fun working out of the house again till I can get shop built.
