That’s an interesting assemblage of vehicles.

Sort of reminds me of my garage.

The repaint on the X1/9 coming along. I told them "no hurry" on it, so I can't complain that it's been over a month. Bottom line, I told them that I've got it entered in the museum's "Oddballs and Oddities" car show on August 8th, so I think I'll have it by August 7th.

Thanks! I'm interested to see the reaction at the Oddballs & Oddities car show on August 8th.

Damn, I like that green toolbox. It would match perfectly.

I guess the X1/9 will have to scratch my green car itch for the foreseeable future (unless and until a Ravenna Green 914 just happens to fall into my lap someday).
