Guess what?

Post by Jeff »

Sold the Prefect!
Always missed my 57 Chevy…..
Now I have an updated, restored car we can cruise North America in. 4 speed auto, all round disc brakes and comfort. Even room for Buzz our 2 year old Border Collie. I only found a Nomad! Yep, never thought I would get one of these, ever!

It’s tucked away in the garage. Next month we are off to Florida for thee months. Might do a little parts shopping whilst there. Back in the spring to get going again. I had some UK funds left over there. And as the Canadian dollar is really in the Bananarama! the car was a bargain!

Driving there Derek. We have done it a few times in the past. But not for 3 months. Thought we would try out being snowbirds. Will be spring when we return, so will miss a lot of the cold snowy weather.
It is around 24 hrs non stop. But we like to break it up, by visiting different areas on the way down. So will do it over 3 days. Will also be there for sick week. Looking forward to that!

It was a time to think... Did I want another project that would probably not get finished? Nope..
Did I want to pay a shop to build what I want? Nope...
Did I want to take advantage of a project someone else did? Damn, thats the one!

Anyone who is interested, here is the build, all done by 2 guys at home.
Car would be way into the 3 figures had I got this done at a shop.

Beautiful Nomad Jeff, congratulations. I just read the restoration thread - they did a great job.

A friend has a 56, just down the road from me.
