Future Rides:

These are my grandfather's classics. He has an early-60's Nash Metropolitan that he restored completely. He promised that one to my wife. There's also a 1950 "Shoebox" Ford 2-door, original 1972 Lincoln, & his 1975 GMC short/fleet pickup that he still drives regularly.

Thank you! I grew up around the '60-66 trucks, as they're my dad's favorite era. Before I got my driver's license, I used to putt around the neighborhood block in an old beat up '66 short/fleet. Unfortunately, I never learned the 3OTT. We had a '64 with it, but my dad had begun the process of switching it to Auto by the time I could drive. It was supposed to end up being my truck & sadly got sold during my college years. That's what led me to search for one of my own.

Thanks. Not sure why my grandpa bought & restored the Metro, except for the fact that it's unique. Many years ago while visiting a friend in Texas, he came across it sitting in somebody's yard under a tree I think. After some negotiating, he ended up bringing it home. It just sits in the shop now, but he does keep it cranked. He's a fairly hefty guy & can barely fit into the thing, especially now that he is 82 & can't get up/down good. He told me and my wife that we could take it over once we have a house & somewhere to store it inside.

Didn't realize you were on the tnctc board also.

You and I have very similar taste in vehicles. I've had a few old VWs, had my red 2 door 2wd Tahoe, and I always lusted after a 64-66 swb. I have also owned a couple squares.

You did but just forgot, because you posted in the welcome thread of mine. :haha:

Cool that we have similar tastes. I don't know if I ever mentioned on this board, but both of my remaining grandparents (who owned the vehicles linked above) passed away exactly within a month of each other later last year. That's means I have to find a place for my grandpa's vehicles once we have everything settled with their estate. Gonna have to find a place with some land so I can have a shop.

I must be getting old.

I have a friend who might be selling some land over in Thompson's Station, but no buildings or anything on it.

Do you know how much land? We've thrown around the idea of possibly building if we could find the right spot.
