The Road to Nitro, week 6
I still haven’t gone to get the new car as some of you know I was in an accident at work on May 2. I got 2nd degree burns on 18% of my body when I was sprayed with racing fuel. To say the least this has put me a bit behind. I am healing pretty good but I still have my good and bad days. The last few days have been pretty painful for some reason. Today is the first day I have felt like writing something. Yes I have quite a selection of meds and a spread sheet of times I take my pills. Thanks to Lisa for that because when you are med’d up it is hard to remember when you last took a pill!
I did however put a hold deposit down on the car and let him know I would come to pick the car up as soon as I felt like I could make the trip to Utah to pick it up. My mind has been going a hundred million miles per hour but my body says just lay right here.
I am selling a few things off of the car and we did have one guy come look at it. Bryan had to come over and deal with him as I was just hurting too bad to go out there. Bryan and Don came over and got it out of the trailer and made it presentable.
I am scheduled to be off work until Aug 2nd so not much will get done until after that. The good news is I have plenty of time and am not in a real hurry. When I get the car here I am going to first shorten the car up to 120” or so. That will keep me busy for a bit and won’t take much money to complete.
I have a look that I want to achieve with the car so I will take my time. Maybe something cool like the shot of this old car below. My old blue car was a neat looking car also and the guys on the starting line always called it the bucket! That actually sounds like a good name for a car, "The Bucket"!
As I sell parts off of my car then I will buy parts for the new one.One thing nice about having some time to sell off the parts is I can hold my ground on the prices. The stuff I have sold so far have been good prices for me and the customer. It is not like I have to fire sale it! Oops,bad pun!
