Thankfully the weather is warming and my cabin fever is slowly getting healed. The housecleaning is coming along slowly. This week a truck picked up another shipment of 356 motor cores to Ca. There were two 1956 era complete cores that are very restorable. Still have 356 and 912 motors to convert to cash. I have a very low mileage 912 motor that is ready to install.
Recently I was in the hospital for a brief overnight. My grandson came to see me and he ran into the room first and told me to make a noise like a frog when Grandmother gets here. I asked why and he told me that she said that 'when I croaked they were all going to Disneyworld'. (its a joke)

Not a lot to report this month, just nasty weather and I'm getting very tired of the cold. I am allergic to 'cabin fever'.
Progress is slow going on the Cabriolet body but we're getting there. Andy's helper also works at Ford and has been reassigned to Detroit while the Fern Valley plant undergoes renovation and is only home on weekends.
I'm selling off many 356 parts that I haven't used in years and don't see a foreseeable need. I have some duplicate Porsche literature that needs a good home. For example I have the original 'Excellence' and the later 4 volume set, still sealed in factory wrappers. I have a set of Pellow's works including the videos. I also have some early VW parts and literature...
