    Two full storage garages in Delaware.

    I'm in withdrawal already. The last time the Firebird resided in a different state than me was 23 years ago just after I moved to Ohio. Two more weeks and it will be close to me again.

    It looks lonely next to the ladders:(.

    But safe storage until you’re done building (y).

    Not to worry. I added the engine hoist, the hydraulic roll jack and three bicycles after the photo. I couldn't fit them into the other garage!

    The hired help was "less than splendid." They rushed the job and ignored anything I said. Had I not been already running a day behind schedule, I would have made more of an issue of it. I don't think they were ignoring me, but rather that they were incapable of understanding what I said ( even though their first language was English.) They were probably at the top end of their Peter Principle scale already.

    I see one of them loafing on the side of the pic:cool:.

    Hope they didn’t set you back much;).

    When we moved from CA to VA in 2006 we had a snooker pool table and we had it on the second floor above the garage. Watching the movers haul up the 3 pieces of slate was a treat:eek:.

    I was just happy they didn’t throw in the towel(y).

    Why did you leave?
    “Virginia is for lovers” is not your cup of tea?

    I see Firebrid has its front feet firmly planted on the ground again.

    Well, it's not Summer anymore, and the house in Ohio is still up for sale. I sure miss working out in the garage...

    Hard to believe no one wants to buy in Ohio:whistle:.

    But absense makes the bond grow stronger (y).
