This weekend...

Finished "upgrading" the blue car's front suspension with a stabilizer bar swap. Added 20 lbs, but it's worth it to ditch the Cadillac ride.


The red car has gone to its final resting place.

We planned to tow it about 25 km to Ivan's dad's wood lot, so we fashioned a tow-bar out of an old trailer hook and a 4x4 piece of wood. Ivan's comment on the idea: "We're officially rednecks now."

Final rusting place? May she rust in peace. (Unless of course we need parts, in which case may she not rust too much that we can't get the part off with a little WD-40.)
