I'm Back......

Well, it's been about a year since we moved to the farm, and life has been full of builtins for the house, building a paddock for the horses, building a chicken coop, and lord knows what else. The '69 has sat under a cover in the barn for almost a year, with nothing done to it other than an occasional turn of the key to hear the LS fire up.

I still haven't finished the "shop" area of the barn yet, as we have two miniature pigs in one of the stalls (long story....) that stir up red clay dust constantly.

All that said, I've been debating recently whether to sell the Camaro or finish it. The sheetmetal work is just about done (just needs alignment and finishing), and the LS swap is complete. Still needs paint, glass, interior and rims/tires, and all the little odds and ends.

So, boys- I need some motivation. Talk me into keeping or selling her. My daughter, who the car was being built for, hasn't shown any interest, but my younger daughter is, so I'm torn.

Bob, I know you have a lot of work in it. Keep it, even if it might be quite a while before you have a place to work on it. Some day you will enjoy getting back to it, and having fun as a finished car.

Well I always say finish what you start. It looks as if someone else would appreciate the car and is willing to work on it with you. So I would continue with her.

You will kick yourself. Been there done that! Just hold onto it if you don't need the money.
