13 months? Really?

Just so you know, I AM still alive and Marge is still in the garage. In fact, I needed to hide from the heat today, so Marge loaned me her tailgate for a nice shady seat. Still, I can't believe it has been more than a year since I updated this blog.

Not much has changed with the old girl. This year we have been a little tight on $, so Marge was the first project to get sent to the back burner. Hopefully, with a new job on the horizon, that will be changing in the fall. Of course, once I am working I won't have any time to hang out with Marge, but at least I hope to stockpile some parts.

I have always kept a mental punch list of small projects to get done, but Marge now has a dedicated marker board out in the garage where I can keep track of all the things I need to get done to get her back on the road.

The major items currently include:
BRAKES and a new front suspension.
Engine tear down/rebuild

No need to get too specific for now. The most important stuff that Marge needs is all big $, so until I can afford to get these things done first, there isn't much sense in spending the cash to get the little stuff done.
