Didn't come anywhere near us, but it did come close enough to Charleston to delay my trip to get the '65 painted. Going up the week of Oct 15th now.

It's not quite that variable here in Maine, but not far off. We had 90's a couple weeks ago and had a hard freeze the other night.

Brace yourself - winter is coming! :ack:
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:

It's been in the 90's here all fall so far. Today it went into the mid 80's at last. Charleston trip is now Nov 15th, as they are going to the SEMA convention in Las Vegas. Looks like I may get about 3 weeks of nice working weather to get it as ready as I can, then have them finish everything up and paint & polish. May also have them install most of the parts as well. Small things like ...... doors ...... hoods ....... bumpers ...... grills ....... headlights ..... windows, etc.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you all have a great turkey day!

Winter has apparently arrived in full force this year. We've had two snow storms in the past week, totaling about a foot of snow. High temps today were in the teens. Here's the current temp - the wind chill is pretty brutal. I think it's going to be a long winter. :ack:

On the bright side, at least the fresh snow looks pretty. It's been so cold very little of it has melted off the tree branches.

That's great looking landscape though. I tried to load photos and still can't. How did you do that?

Tell us about your Corvette: 1971 Coupe that's been in the family since new. Was "stored" in a shed in New England for 22 years. Even though I have limited knowledge and experience, I'm SLOWLY doing a body off restoration. Standby for many questions!
