    :shhh:

    Hubby order the distributor cap, router button and points today. He has been tinkering with Fanny and got the engine to turn over last week. It has been sitting idle for some time...as you know.
    I don't want to jinx another start, so keep this to yourself.

    EEE ;)

    That's exciting Jennifer. I hope this is the start that gets and keeps the ball rolling!

    Thanks guys. I knew I could trust you to keep this quite. I'm nervous this will be another false start.

    Baby steps. One little part at a time.

    If it’s any consolation Fannie I have a friend that is still finishing a Packard Limousine that he bought in 1990. Good luck. BTW we’re good secret keepers, but we’re still nosey. Keep us posted, and maybe pictures, on the down low if you can. Lol

    Did the snow collapse your portable storage building like it did mine? I lost 2 of them to wind and one to snow. Finally went back to a simple car cover.

    A few years ago we added onto the garage so Fannie would fit in and hubby could work around her easier. We gave the portable storage cover thingy we have to one of the boys.
