Took the car to Japanese Steel Restoration today, and it turns out the owner, Nikon, is friends with the mechanic who has worked on my cars for years. My carport feels empty.

I’m nervous and excited about this. He says it will come back looking like it just came from the factory. He said I can come by to see progress any time.

He was working on a Porsche 356 Speedester that had rusted to shit, a beautiful 60s Mustang, and was finishing a major restoration on an MGB. At least the Sunchaser is in good company. 30-45 days to finish.
