    Put the car away about a week after getting it registered. Just had other cars I wanted to get done/drive. Planning ahead I took out the drivers seat. When I bought the car in 1995 I had both seats reupholstered. Over the last few summers I had noticed I was getting small holes in my right rear pants pocket area . Not to mention scratches in the same area on my back. This last summer I figured out there was a broken spring/rod/??? in the upper seat back. Well, that was the culprit. I had also noticed I seemed to be sitting lower for some reason which after pulling out the seat I saw the spring/support for the seat bottom was broken/rusted. Managed to get that part figuring it would be better to have it when it was needed. Finally after several weeks of looking at it sitting on the garage floor took it to an upholsterer figuring I would see it again in the spring. A week ago he called saying it was done, apparently he ran out of work. Darn !!! Wish I had some other stuff that needed to get done...:rolleyes:

    p.s. did everyone else go south? am I the only one left up here?

    Never wanted to come here in the first place. But I'm an empath....whatever someone wants. That is now long gone. The heat? Nah. But the heat combined with the humidity - that's nasty.

    I'll pass on Florida. My wife and I had a chance to move there when her dad passed away in 2017..... we could have packed up here and taken his house in Ocala, but neither of us can stand heat or humidity.

    NY born and raised, can't see myself anywhere else.

    Brian, I hope at some point we can meet somewhere in the middle between Rochester and your side of NY for a beverage of your choice and a handshake.

    Consider it done. Once I get all settled in, we will get together. I was just in Saratoga closing on my home. There from Monday to Wednesday.
