For f***'s sake, I thought there was an actual update.


What's going on with the car, anyway?

I ended up moving on top of a mountain... Car is hanging out in a shipping container until I can get a shop built or something like that, just so busy renovating and building a new road etc....

View from the house is pretty sweet though!

I'd put some things off for a piece of that too.

Your own road? You mean your own hillclimb course?

Glad it's still on some burner, even if it's the back. This car comes up regularly when me and my dad talk about putting a 122 body on... some kind of rolling chassis.

All I remember was the guy was selling them as m3 flares. No brand or anything.

Haha that's sweet, my dad did something similar in the 70's with a small car on a big v8 chassis... I had no idea until he told me after my car was together. Funny how that works.

I have 1/2 mile of gravel driveway and its a huge PITA to get anyone else on the road to do anything but bitch about it. If I didn't own a tractor it would look more like a muddy 4X4 trail than a driveway.

Ya that's about it... Its spring break up right now... Majority of the road is 10" deep mud ruts... Its awful. I found a shale deposit on the property so it's going to be a gravel road by the end of fall I'm hoping.

that's a pretty awesome view right there, hope you've got a decent tractor or a skidsteer to put in the gravel road ;)

Do you hunt also since you are going to live on the mountain top?

What do you have for equipment up there?

I don't think a skidsteer is gonna cut it...

Those mountains look kind of blunt for the coast, how far did you go?

I use a 35HP New Holland tractor with front loader and a box scraper. Box scraper is the only way to go. The front loader is really only for moving gravel around. The scraper does the heavy lifting.

Sound like good excuse to get lots of play things, my 500EXC does well with deep ruts

Dug the ol' girl out of the back of a shipping container, next major project will be a shop build, then back to work on the Volvo... Been super busy, built a custom excavator to fuel a new career... Hopefully it makes me some money to get a shop on the go at home!
