Lots of pictures on Swaye's Flickr account.



But his new shop does have a wood stove.... and plenty of magnolia firewood.

Shameless bump of this topic because there are some great photos of this truck.

Long last project update: I bought this thing from Brett for some reason, enginless and sitting around for a few more years but the frame and body are still sound enough to justify putting the work in (I mean, curfmans mutt came in two pieces so the "too far gone" bar was set pretty low)

Work has already started on restoring this girl and we think she'll have a lot of life left to putt around town, hit the trails, and give the classic car owners heart attacks as I weasel it in a crowded local car show.

I hope your settling in nicely out east.  I'm glad I was able to visit before this move happened.  If your setting up your shop in the new home you better share some pictures of the new setup!

Absolute best of luck out east, Al!  With any luck, we'll be able to visit sometime, once you're ready for visitors.  Maybe, if the trip isn't too long, I can convince our guys to bring our green fleet your way  Wink

Moving out



The company agreed to move my lathe.  I broke it down and crated it to insure it made the trip and did not kill the movers. 



Driveway empty for the last time. 


Shop now empty


Back porch nearly empty (Last PALCON went to Curfman)

Recent work changes have resulted in me moving to West Virginia for the time being. 

Obviously, this means leaving the little house in KCK in favor of a new place out east.  An upgrade after a fashion but none the less sad to see the little house and shop go that has made so many memories for all of us over the years. 

A brief pictorial of what all we managed to get done in a single car garage and single wide driveway in a $35K house.



We used to fit a lot of vehicles in down there... 



A young and spirited Curfman celebrates the first of many victories over M151 master cylinders at the shop and elsewhere


Engine overhauls...  my god we did a lot of engine overhauls... 


Sometimes we went to Tent Daves and filled the entire house with Winter overwhites... 


Or had to use C-wire to keep the neighborhood kids at bay.  (These kids have kids now BTW)


Some days were sunny and nice. 


Some days were not. 


Some days we all worked together as a team.


Some nights the faithful tormented the neighbors by welding into the skinny hours of the night. 


Sometimes we had room in the house...  Sometimes we had MREs... 


Boy did we used to get sandbags... 


The shelter coming in...


Shelter going out. 


Curfmans jeep coming in, or at least half of it. 


The Russian sewing machine on the stand that was built at the shop. 



Built a few of these mortars there too.

I'm in the backgrounds portion of the recruit process for a new department, and one of the things they asked me for was links and usernames to any social media and message boards or blogs that I am active on.  I popped in to get the link to my profile here, and made the good or bad (you decide) decision to start looking through some of the pics on the Flickr section.

I miss you fuckers.  We need to get a reunion planned, with or without uniforms and green fleet trucks.
