We only have 1 son, so no division..
We would fit the "poverty" level in San Fran for sure, but we live very comfortably where we are. We're actually looking to move about 7-8 miles south of here, to get away from a small airport that they want to expand, a train track and the freeway.
I've been looking at a 5 bed, 3 bath, 3500 sq ft home on 12 acres for $685k. Not that we can afford that. I was at the surveyors office today, to see if there is a way to split the property and sell off 5 acres and use that to bring our price down to close to what we can sell our current home for. There is a drainage easement near the back of the property that probably eliminates that possibility..

David, I tried to send a PM, but I got a message that your box is full and can't receive anymore until you delete some.
I got the pedals yesterday, thank you. Just need to know how to pay you.

Finished the fuel line, and brake line accross the rear end. I made the brake line from the rear axle forward but have not clamped it yet.

Will update my thread once I get the frame drilled and line clamped.

I broke the pin off on my 3/16 double flare die. Eastwood sells the Lysle brand individual dies. 2.99 for die and 7.99 shipping. Came today.

I got out there and cleaned up behind the garage so I can put the cab out there to sand blast on it. Tired of covering my lawn with sand. I also got my extra roof in the trailer to haul it to the shop scrap metal bin. I cut a few pieces from the roof and from the inside of the extra inner panel to see if I could use it on the lower corners on the inside of the cab, but nope, forget it, they are off to the scrap metal bin.

Sho nuf crazy! Its like me back at a dealer body shop trying to understand why the same one hour radiator replacement cost $60 in my body stall but cost $120 if my friend in the service department did it. Do huh?

You guys probably cannot comprehend my home scenario... Its worth maybe half again what I paid, but I have already paid for it twice and have once more to go. I represent the end of the line for my family name. My folks already moved to their final house, one that will be easy for my bro and I to sell, so they say. I have no idea what happens to my junk when I croak. Never wed, no kids. I'll try to not have anything then, just like when I got here.

This afternoon I hung that other headlight, the rear bumper and valance, etc. Mrs Owner stopped in to ask if Mr had been grouchy. Quite the contrary, he has been most enthusiastic and done well to mask any doubts. She dug the ride but didn't get to see any gaps because everything was open. I gotta adjust front bumper and install one brace, then install the fancy hood hinges and aside from this or that like fixing loosy cheapo grille and drip rail trim, thats about it. First I gotta hang the bumper back on that fender bender from earlier in the week. Next week will be wierd with a holiday smack dab in the middle.

No pics because gee, you think I'll show the "finished" Chevelle? Pfft. And you-un's know what they look like. Sure I took some. The owner wants just yellow inside the park / turn lamps, and wants to do door fuzzies and trim panels at home. The headliner is in except for earmuff panels for whatever reason. Have a pleasant evening and an outstanding tomorrow, gents.

Go to harbor fright and get a big tarp, mine is about 12x20, and catch the sand. I sweep it up and screen it back in to run it thru over and over.

Mr Sandman reminds me... Today I listened to the Bill Haley station on Pandora and that was refreshing. Man, I heard some good ones and got some funny looks. Why do I know lyrics to so many popular 50s rock songs? Was the jukebox at Arnold's that influential? On Happy Days. I think tomorrow I'll go for Glen Miller and see what variety I get. Dad's garage radio put me onto big bands when I was fixing up my ex Ventura so it takes me back I reckon. Its not bad at work being off in a clean corner listening to what I like.

Had some flash flooding on the evening commute today. Heard the serp belt chirp a few times. That recent compessor hub bearing replacement nightmare convinced me to slow way the hell down for standing water. GTP is at the mercy of hydroplaning situations withput directional rain tires. I need to start looking for some good nondirectional rain tread. Asked the Japan fans at work what the good brands of asian sounding named tires are. Had seen some Yokohamas on CL. They said Toyo or Nitto. I guess less letters is better? Tires are a freakin crap shoot.

Ack! Bed...

Well, she was pressured to sell it being she couldn't catch up with the payments. It was a CRAP HOLE we are talking CRAP HOLE needing a complete rebuild. Whole yard, front and back FULL of three foot high weeds, overgrown HORRIBLE trees to be removed, five sheds full of CRAP, house full of crap, it is only 794 square feet, a tiny 2 bedroom 1 bath with a one car garage FULL of crap......it sold for $774 Three quarters of a million dollars!

Wow, this is crazy!

That's an amazing story! How different it can be within the same country. Things like this occur in Jersey and Long Island as well, and still it's borderline unfathomable to me.

It is just crazy! On a drive last night around town we went up into the more affluent area, we saw five or so houses being rebuilt from the foundation up! They are selling crap holes for a million and people are buying them and completely rebuilding them! A few months ago I saw a house about the same as mine (small two bed one bath) up in that area go for a million and a quarter$

Don't be envious. They are to busy making money to build a neat truck. You are the happy one!

When I was a young telephone man and was going in peoples homes 6 or 7 times a day, it did not take long to see that money was a very poor creator of happiness.

Mitch does deserve some free stuff.

Glass man came and went already, Chevelle has windows and moldings all around now. I have my Silverado bumper fender job down to grille and bumper adjustment left. The fender save turned out well. I miss Kitty.
