Well the wife doesn't want to use the Original any longer. Seems I'm to "demanding" on what she can and can't do with it...

Plus we have plenty of tractors to use that I'm not so picky about. So seeing it won't be used for awhile, what are we going to do with it? Park it in the shed? Sell it? NO!

Put it in the living room for safe keeping. :thumbs: So I drained the fuel and parked it.

Looks right at home. 

 

So,  Does this mean the wife will be living in the garage?   :deadhorse:

As I was showing these pictures to the wife, She thumped me.

I took that as a no to the question I was about to ask, but won't.    :ah_shoot: 

 

The Original looks to be right at home!  Good for you!  :thumbs:          Rick

Put a leaf vac on it and throw the vacuum away. You will need creeper gear for the basement and upstairs, I would think. Be sure to open some windows first.

4 decades ago, my pet project was restoring a Honda 600 coupe. We didn't have a garage, the only place to rebuild the engine was in the middle of our living room floor. Did it, it worked! Mentioned this story and photos to her..."DON't EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!"

What? You didn't give it a rug to sit on? I'll admit the reflection off that beautiful floor is pretty cool. Really, I see nothing wrong with these pictures.
