She's A Beauty!!
A lovely lady is sitting in my garage. My 68 Mustang is home. Her name is Beauty. Isn't she sweet?
I guess I hadn't mentioned her too much....several of you emailed me because you didn't know about her. She belonged to my brother. He had gotten her from a friend and had planned to fix her up. Well, she sat in his yard for 2 years!! No cover, no protection... poor thing. Anyway, he figured he just wasn't wanting to take care of her and he was needing some cash. So, he gave us a good deal. That was around Mother's Day last year. We saved up and finally took her to get some TLC this past January. Originally, she was orange. When we got her, she was rust colored. Roger did some work inside, but she really needed some specific updates, etc... so, we took her to the shop. We had hoped it would take about 4-5 months. Well, we finally got her back today, almost exactly 9 months after we took her in. The next item she'll get is new tires/wheels. I'm not much of a tire/wheel expert, but Roger and the guys at the shop assure me she needs new ones. I'm not even sure which is the tire and which is the wheel. I just want it to be pretty :-)
I picked her up at noon and had to go get new tags. This afternoon, I loaded up the kids and we had to make a trip to Happy Hour at Sonic. Here's my 4 youngest muffins with their drinks, next to Beauty. We were happy.
