Spring is Springing!

Looking back to November 24th 2012...

Jim Ellis found a 1949 Minor in a barn, they still happen, and hopefully will for many generations to come.

Here we are a year later He and Step Dad David Moore are attempting to start it.

Then to November 29th, 2014...

Jim's '48 low-light "Lucy" is going to be a knock-down dragged-out full restoration. Lucy needs floor and cross member repairs, she needs new glass and rubber seals throughout, she needs some bodywork and a new interior, she doesn't just need "detailing", she needs a major cleanup! But, as verified by a local professional auto restorer, she is in exceptionally fine shape for a lady her age.

She's slated by Jim to be completed by her 70th birthday in 2018. Even though she is a very small car, given he amount of work to be done, timing will be tight, so we'll see!

And now the present...

The weather has been slowly warming up and Jim has been able to get to working on Lucy and the equipment needed to restore her.

Engine stands to be modified and form each end of the Morris rotisserie. Wooden templates for other bits of it and the engine from the series MM on the left rear engine stand, out of harms way for now,

While carefully removing the headlining from the Series MM, it appears that someone called Bill fitted it and signed it off, over 65 years ago,

More to come...
