Having a big shop is a real benefit right now. With all of us hunkered down, the shop can be a great diversion from the craziness.

As I mentioned earlier in this tread, my poor old bus sits outside so that I can house and work on a some automotive projects. I am currently working on three projects: 50 Oldsmobile (394 olds engine with Cad LaSalle transmission - old time hot rod), 47 Buick with chopped top and my 59 International truck (BC-150 kind of rare truck that was the forerunner of the Loadstar). I have some project pages about these projects (all badly in need of updating) here:

I have been enjoying spending a few hours each day on these projects. Because I can spend more time in the shop I find myself doing a better job on each part of each project.

Jim H, I bet I could fill your shop up in no time at all :D
