It lives


(not pictured, the grease in my hair)

I officially have brakes. But the kind of brakes where you say ‘this doesn’t stop very well, I should do a brake job.’

But that’s not the point. The Dodge stops when you press a pedal, the pedal compresses eight individual shoes grabbing four drums and in synchronous harmony the car slows down to a stop.

This is a good feeling.

Thanks to a lot of awesome people who got this car this far. Let it be known that without your assistance the old Dodge would probably still just be sitting idly by in the garage.

Thank you Don, Myrna, Mom, Dad, Owen, Wes, Uncle Marvin, Young Ed, and so many other people.

Thank you!

Tomorrow I hope that Myrna can stop by and we can go for a joyride around the neighborhood!!!

And I hope to continue to update you all throughout the week on any new exciting changes.

One thought on “It lives

  1. I will admit, I teared up a little bit when I read this. Bravo, Joel, on all of your hard work. I can’t wait to go for a joyride later today!
