Thought some members would like to see how little cars handle carrying the firewood.
Wind storm in March 2008 brought down this tree in our yard. I never could figure out how I was going to take it down with my chainsaw so God helped.
Prayers answered or another project added to the pile.
Now I get to repair it correctly.
Car was bought originally with knock in engine and rebuilt to drive as an economy vehicle. Fun little car for back and forth to work.
Now under construction to repair previous owner collision damage repair done wrong and some cosmetics for the scratches from the tree.

Dear Ponchogeezer,
Car has been in my shop taking up ****e for past 8 months.
Pulled broken windshield and found kink in corner from previous wreck and am changing the right upper rail.
Fiero construction is very strong with the ****e frame technology with many overlapping pieces welded together in lower windshield corner.
I have a twin I bought for parts that had been t-boned in left side so have all the parts I need for repair.
Working a job 6 days a week keeps me out of my garage and winter here has been cold and snowy this year with around 80 inches so far.
I hope to push myself more in the new year but at almost 60 I'm still looking for where all my youthful energy went.
Remember what we used to do all night long - now takes us all night long to do.
Jim
