Congrats! That is a great feeling.

How often do you drive the 92?

Not much the last couple years. I still need to get the new engine cradle under it, so there's a bit of a shimmy that discourages me. I take it out every several weeks to stretch its legs.

Oh there's 4 sets of shelves, tool chest, tool cart, red wagon, 4 bikes, 2 cozy coupes, stack of tires, engine stand, wet/dry vac, roof top box, ladder, etc, etc in there. Other than the bits of that you can see, the angle hid most of it.

So after a decade of going out the front door in the morning to get in my car in the driveway, I did it again this morning. Only to turn right around on my heels and go back in, and head for the door into the garage.
