It's been an exciting month! Not only has there been
considerable work accomplished on the car but the month has been packed with events.
High School Graduation
Sunday the garage was used for overflow seating at our oldest daughters' high school
graduation open house. We rented the movie "The Graduate" to play on the garage
TV and set up tables. It was an awesome day weather-wise so the open garage was a favorite
gathering place. Can you guess the school colors?
So our first born is 18 years old now and heading off to college next fall.
How time flies! It seems like just yesterday she was the little munchkin pictured here,
sipping a tall cool one on a hot summer day. I really miss those days when the kids were
small - but not enough to start all over again ;)
In my head I'm still that 19/20 year old guy I used to be about 25 years ago
but every now and then I get a reality check. To reduce their frequency, I avoid mirrors.
Earlier this month I had a couple of those infamous reality
checks back to back.
One day I was in a store and overheard one sales clerk ask
another if he'd "waited on the old guy yet". He was referring to me. As if that
wasn't reprehensible enough, the next day we went to a "parade of homes" open
house and the home builder (slightly younger than me) greeted me with "How are you
today young man?".
Let me tell you, a guy is only called young man if he's
really young or really old. I'm amazed he didn't say "It looks like you're still
getting around pretty good". Well son, this "young man" is building a `33
coupe that'll blow the doors off that belly button Audi of yours and leave you choking in
a swirl of navel lint ;) RRR!
I've found the perfect hiding place for anything
I don't want my wife and kids to find - IN THE CAR!
This is my private stash of Cherry Coke and Lisa's
mother's day gift. If you're thinking I've let the cat out of the bag now that I've
exposed my secret location here on the site, don't worry. This web site is another place
they'll never look and unless one of you tips them off, the secret is safe for ever

May 2002 has been a great month for Project33 with the addition of a couple
new sponsors and all the work that's been accomplished. The trouble has been keeping up
with the Articles here on the site. I've fallen way behind and need to get caught up. It's
so much more fun to work on the car.
I'll be ready to start the roll cage soon. Shipping the hood
off to Steve's Auto Restoration made it necessary to change paths for a while but I'm
headed back on track now.
The radiator is almost mounted and the thermostat and fan are
on their way. The fuel lines have arrived from Pure Choice Motorsports and will be
installed soon. Every little step gets us that much closer to firing it up!
Until next time... thanks for visiting and keep the shiny side
