As the good ship COSCO VIETNAM continues its journey down the east coast of the USA, seemingly stopping at every port along the way (it is currently at Savannah, GA), I continue clearing space at TAB for the upcoming arrival (currently due in to Southampton on Nov 3rd).
W124 is still blocking its spot at TAB and is still in a lot of pieces, although some good progress made this weekend. Rear subframe should be back from the powdercoaters this week, and I've got a big box of Lemförder goodies from Germany ready to put it back together, along with the Silver Project adjustable camber & toe arms. Annoyingly I'll have to take it apart again at some point cos I've bought a set of Commonwealth Motoring bottom arms, which are arriving in the boot of the car from the US.
This is how I spent yesterday, for the most part..
That's great Tom! As long as you spend the cash on cool old car stuff I'm all for it
Kind of, going towards a bigger shed so I can have a workbench etc and a carport! Tom
That counts as "cool old car stuff"
In other news, I've just booked Friday 13th off (LOL! What could possibly go wrong? Lucky I'm not superstitious) so Colonelk & I can go get the car. It's currently due in to Southampton on the 4th, + 3-5 working days for unloading and paperwork - the Friday is more convenient (work-wise) and leaves a couple of days space should there be any delays. EXCITING!
Well, today was supposed to be the day, but Marine Tracker is now showing the ship as due in to Southampton tomorrow. Ho hum..
This week I have sold my 7th engine (Mazda 13B this time), which is now on its way to France, and my 10th set of wheels. I've also boxed up & dispatched some RX7 bumpers to Australia. I can almost see the wood for the trees now
Strangely today I was adding up the total if I was to sell all my vehicles. Surprisingly decent amount of money, unfortunately my dream car is an early porsche 356 and prices for those have gone mental in the last 15 years. My current fleet doesn't hit those numbers! God knows why i didnt buy one when i could afford one!
