Find of the day follow up: Yes it is a Roadster

Out in Mesa, Arizona, there is a man with two American Austins.  They were imported there long ago from the mid west and have had the chance to spend their golden years in the warm dry climate.  Both cars are for sale and their histories are known back though the 1950’s; as they have been in the same family at least that long.

As for the two cars, there is a coupe; a perfect candidate for a hot rod.  It is a 1933-35 coupe that has an unfinished chop on it.  The chop was started in the 60’s, and the current owner spent a great deal of effort in correcting it so it was done properly.

The second car is a 1933-1934 Roadster.  The car has had some modifications to it over the years so the previous owner could keep it on the road and up to date.

The catch is, the seller would like to sell both for one price with almost enough parts to make the roadster correct.  There are a lot of parts in this lot, but it will take a lot of work to build a perfect car from either, and the seller has priced his cars accordingly.  If you’re not looking for perfect, but want a roadster you can put together with minimal work and enjoy, this may be your best chance this year.

Building A Website Presents New Challenges Everyday

To steal a phrase, this isn’t my first rodeo.  However, this is my most successful venture as of yet.  My first website was something I made on Geocities in High School, which sadly vanished along with Geocities.  It was, as you could guess, a website about cars.  The sole purpose of the site was to put my car collection on the web for others to enjoy.  At the time, visitors and clicks meant nothing, but knowing I had staked out my own little piece of the web was all that mattered. 

In college, I launched goldstandardlocatingservice.com.  Don’t try to click that, because it’s a long dead link.  I experimented by actually buying a domain name and trying out a hosting service.  To say it failed epically would be an understatement.  With grand intentions of offering my locating services to the public, I went in with no organized plans.  No website ever actually published and my apprehension of the web grew.  In Law School, I learned about blogging though blog spot.  If anyone from my school is reading, they probably remember it as the free food blog, but it was a way for students to locate all of the events in the school that incorporated free food; from lectures to dodge ball.  Up until now, that two year effort was my most successful attempt at publishing anything on the web, except for helping my Dad with a website for himself a while back.

I’m thankful for WordPress.  It has given me a nice platform to experiment with ideas and concepts while trying to develop a long held dream.  I go more in depth regarding that dream elsewhere on this site, so please feel free to browse.  Although this site is limited, it is growing, and the number of views grows every month.  So far, there have been over 10,500 views.  Your views and comments encourage me to keep striving toward my dream of providing you with wonderful content.  Your suggestions have guided me and my ears are always open.  Please keep watching for updates both in content and organization.
