Grandbabies in the Garage

Say what? Well..yeah, a couple of new developments. Josh and Selenda called the other day with some interesting news. We are going to be Grandparents this year! Selenda is expecting with a due date in early August. This is pretty cool and we are very excited for them. Thus begins a whole new chapter in life for us all. So, one day in the not too far distant future we could have little feet padding around the garage wanting to help Grandpa fix the Jaguar.

The Jaguar? If you read the Hobby Swap post you know I picked up a Jaguar project last month. I’ve been puttering about with it some and decided that I would chronicle my current project as well as my history of British Car adventures on a subsection of the MistyCastle site which I have dubbed the Garage. These pages can be reached using the menu bar in the header or using the Pages links in the sidebar.

It was fun hunting for the pictures, going back down memory lane and documenting the history on my other cars. I still have a couple left to write about. One of them, an early 70’s MGB, was a short term fix-up and re-sell project and I have realized that I do not have a single picture of the car. The other was a ’67 Spitfire, a major restoration project that never got anywhere. Well…that’s not entirely true come to think of it, I did get the motor running again.

I’ve joined the Jaguar Club of Southern Colorado and am looking forward to meeting some of the other local enthusiasts.The meeting next month is at local restoration shop (ReinCARnation Auto) that has done some phenomenal work. I’ve only looked at their website but what I saw was quite inspiring and I can’t wait to see some of the actual works in progress.

  1. The grandbaby in the garage makes me think of the pic we have of Josh washing the car when he was about 2yrs. old 🙂

    As for the car, its beautiful! But I might argue that nothing beats the view from the back of a bike (zoom zoom!)

    Congrats on both!

  2. Well, you beat me to writing the entry about the baby! This is so awesome and to see you already thinking about patiently answering questions, Grandpa, what is this? Grandpa, what is that? What does this do, Grandpa? This baby will prabably beat you to diagnosis on the Jag if he or she is anything like it’s parents. They are both so intelligent! We thought staying ‘ahead’ of Josh was a challenge. Good thing we have time to get older and wiser BEFORE this birth. I don’t know about you but I am going to start by reading the encyclopedia, although that may be SO last century….I will probably just err on the side of love and love the stuffins out of him or her!
