    Well, Jeff... ya beat me to it. But not by much. Dec. 8th/2017 my shop officially changes hands. Yep, I've sold out myself. Now, I'm teaching at a small technical college as well as doing all my usual writing. It's a bitter sweet time, but overall I'm so glad that I was able to sell the shop. Now, I can pursue new adventures in the automotive world. Good luck Jeff!

    All I can say is two (2) good men starting down different highways. My advice is have fun and realize none of us are getting out of this alive so enjoy the ride. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

    The new job is a local company that manufactures bucket lifts, man lifts, etc. Welding, installing hydraulics, wiring controls and the such. I am looking for a smaller shop closer to the house so I can still get my hands dirty. Been wanting to build a chop top low rider for a while, maybe a late sixties 2 door Electra 225, as well as a custom bike. I have a very loyal following that has told me they would work around my schedule if I would still maintain their vehicles. I will be "closing" Dec. 22 and start the new job Jan. 2. And like I stated before if it dont work out thru the probation period I will be back guns blazing!! I really stressed this...hated to close. Now I am stressing over what to do with all my equipment..lol. And Gonzo for what it's worth your heart attack was a factor in my decision. Got me really thinking about what I want outta life. Last 15 years I have run my shop and worried about everyone else...now ol dad is gonna take care of me and mine!
