Afterthought: I just found a website telling a lot more about Dean Weller, the man doing all this, and providing far better photos:
Hi Readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.
I had no idea what was in there when I suggested Michael pull over for a look at that car. But as we got out and peered through shadowing hands to overcome the reflections an old guy sitting in a truck out front spoke to us:
“You can come in for a closer look if you want to.” He got out and unlocked the door to the building. The place is jam-packed with cars he’s build or restored. He’s 88 years old been doing this since he retired in the late 1960s.
Two stories packed with old cars and trucks. Woodies, racecars, whatever.
No fewer than a couple of dozen. More than enough to serve an 88 year old man for basic transportation.
Sometimes if you bet a few minutes of life and say some magic words the Universe will cooperate and shoot a surprise out of nowhere.
