I’m still here. Life has a funny way of pushing projects to the back burner.

Hello all, Yes. It’s been awhile. Just wanted to update you all on the Ranchwagon project. Nothing has changed. I haven’t done anything with it in over 3 years. I’ve been involved in a major home renovation, starting with a complete Foundation under my 120 year old home! It’s been a back and forth struggle to get the house up to snuff. If you’ve ever seen the movie Money Pit, then you’ll know what my wife and I are dealing with. If you think restoring a car can drive you nuts, try doing it to a house, with a wife, and pets while you are all still living in it.

Then in the midst of the house renovation , my wife and I were blessed to find out we were going to have a baby! He’s a healthy 10 week old now. He truly is a gift from God. But that’s another story.

So the car sits. Waiting for life to calm down a bit. But I’ll be back to it this summer and hopefully get to putting floor pans and inner and outer rockers installed. That should be a hoot.

    Awesome check in! Congrats on the baby.

    I’m currently working on a 1958 Edsel and your front end rebuild photos have helped me rebuilding my front end. Look forward to future updates.

  3. I can definitely relate, especially that scene from The Money Pit. Found out a couple of months ago that my upstairs toilet is sitting on 1 inch of crumbling, unsupported 94-year-old concrete. So while my 352 Ford sits torn down to the block, I’m ripping the ceiling out of my kitchen so my wife or I don’t end up down there from a visit to the powder room. I also found out that the said, supposedly well preserved, engine was seized in every conceivable manner.
