Weekly Community Roundup 4/20
Kevin’s shop tour brought out a lot of great family stories—learning cars with dad, working in his shop, and building cars with grandparents. We’ve also got quite a few racers itching to get back out there. You’re not alone, there.
Thanks to Ron, Lars, Randy, Craig, Mark, Michael, Joe, Chris, Terry, Phil and Steve for sharing your projects.
We’re putting this together every week. It's hard to know what’s going on if we can’t all get together in one place! And this nice weather lately has us itching for a good car show. While it’s not quite in-person, it's good to know we’re still working on cars and our projects keep coming together.
"I learned to wrench on cars in my dad's garage, too. He was a street rod guy, did custom body paint and when I was a baby he turned wrenches for the famous Nicky Chevrolet in Chicago. It's mostly gone, now since he passed but I still have a couple of his old roll away Craftsman boxes filled with vintage American made tools. Here is my '71 Chevelle he painted for me when I was 20." - Ron S.
