The car was parked in the garage, and was this close to disassembly & welder-based first aid...

Then it was pressed back into service hauling brush to the city compost yard - result of a big wind storm.

It's really satisfying using it as a light duty hauler, especially the low speed maneuvering...I guess it's all low speed with this car . Forklift DNA ftw!!

So... a few more brush runs are required early this week... THEN it's into the garage for first aid. (I should get someone to hide the keys so I can't pull it out again!)
