Work is when you have to do it

Play is when you want to do it.

A professional gets paid to do it.

An amateur does it for free.

Nothing above is an indicator of how well you do it.

Bought a couple more pieces for the exhaust for my 68 caddy. Working on a deal for a 74 coupe about 325 miles away on craigslist. I had to go a couple of towns over for work related training today, so not much is getting done today. Also coughing up mucus, so I just don't feel like working on the caddy. I want to, but just don't have much energy for it.

I gotta get my summer daily driver back on the road first. Hopefully I can drive a couple more weeks this year.

Got the gasser out for another sunny dry day of cruising! Then stopped by the parts store and picked up a cigarette lighter outlet. Need one in the gasser for emergency cell phone charge, etc. So I built an aluminum plate and hid it under the dash with opening down in case I need a charger outlet. Hooked it to a spare switch so I can toggle it off too.

I've got a power outlet in my T-bucket for my GPS. BTW, it also has cruise control.

That's kinda why I had to hide it. Just sort of out of place, but I seem to need a cigarette lighter outlet often, even though I don't smoke.
