Stein - You would have gotten a pretty different response. "Context matters."

Everything runs except for the SAAB and 51. 51 will be running by the weekend.

I currently have six vehicles and two are running. I thought you had more projects in the wings for some reason.

I drove the Austin Healey over a railroad crossing once and the steering wheel came off the column in my hands. Fun car.

While I appreciate that this was probably scary as hell when it happened this comment made me laugh out loud in my office and draw some attention.

See, getting an old car provides you with so many stories.

Your car will suffer so much if you get another project. I have been there.

Scratch that, only SAAB doesn't run. Truck runs well as of last night.

Do you know why English cars were always so small? It made them easier to push.

Jeep much?

This is why my other projects are sitting idle. I'm trying to focus on the Miata.

I have absolutely no regrets on the Jeep. It was a small investment for so much reward.

Besides, I am 100% committed to the Miata at the moment. I am sure it will result in me being committed!
