"Jody already has me buying the vacant lot out back and remodeling the building... Just shoot me"

Is the lot behind your building big enough for a small test track??

First Bank of Weld....


Found the neon on FleaBay -- noticed the seller was very near me so sent him an email as I wanted to see the Mobil in person... turns out he has a store so went to check it out. Also turns out that he was needing some cash flow. NOW WE'RE TALKIN' -- as I am more than happy to help with that regard... ended up with the Mobil and the Nash. Called my moving company and the next day they're at my house instead of his store.

Well here's the deal Jerry.... the building is on a "circle" with no stop signs... and there's nothing happening in this little commercial area after about 5 in the afternoon. So I'm thinking.... I pretty much have the whole neighborhood as a test track!

I went back through the pictures a couple of times and was looking for the stripper pole. Did I miss that somewhere?

Place just looks outstanding!

When I stopped by this morning on my way out of town --- half the trades in the valley were at the shop working.... LOL



Okay -- Well I knew you'd all be waiting -- so after a 10 hour drive.... I'll post up the photos of the paint going on - and the new sheetrock in the upstairs area.


THE BLUE will be painted MAT BLACK.... but one thing at a time okay!?!?












The lower part of this wall -- get's 10' high (tall) corrugated steel floor to to the 10' mark...












Sheetrock going on upstairs AND the storage loft area walls painted...






















The new shop doors are on order -- and they'll be 2" thick insulated --- and at the 10' level they'll have glass for some natural light.... They'll be overhead doors == not these roll ups -- but will still have side mounted motors.














So just in case you forgot here's a BEFORE PAINT pic.....

If it was mine....I'd put in a BigAss fan, a neat lil dust collection system, some barn wood and, mmm, a black toilet!

It's looking good and movin right along, did you really buy the lot behind you?

No --- but if you saw the cul d'sac and the curved driveway and the "motor court" (I'd call it a f'n turnaround) at the house.... I'm thinking a guy could charge up the driveway - drift the turn around - charge back down the driveway and drift the cul d'sac and head right back up!


I mentioned this idea to Gwen today ..... she said "I wouldn't put it past you...."


To me --- that's tacit approval!!!
