The 1950 Dodge ... A Ten Year Project ... Completed!
|Bringing Home the 1950 Dodge|
|Progress After Two Years|
Finally, we were down to one child left at home who was very close to driving age. It was REALLY time to make this truck work. This past summer, my husband and Noah (who was only 5 years old when we first bought the dilapidated truck) really hauled. Every spare moment was spent in the garage working on this elephant of a project. Towards the end of the summer, Noah had to start up with Band Camp and Football practice, leaving Chad alone for chunks of some of the last touches. But, low and behold, the truck is now finished.

and a Nicely Refurbished 1950 Dodge
What Seamus (now 26 and married) and Ian (now 24 and living in Virginia) helped Chad start 10 years ago has now become Noah's (to use, not necessarily to keep!) ... who just got his driver's license and is very pleased to drive this well-invested treasure to and from school.
