Didn't want to hijack Steve's thread and since a few of the guys have requested - here's a few photos of the "new digs" - shop to be re-opened soon ! I intend on having a "by appointment only" Model T parts garage sale SOON at the Milton place !

WOW! And I thought your old shop was nice Steve! The new one sure is a lot brighter tho',....not sure if it's the white walls or a couple hundred overhead lights. (Probably both) Nice though, and looks like a lot more useable space. Looks like you folks really found a beautiful and peaceful spot. And "size-wise", not only a nice big shop, but again,....WOW! Looks like a lotta' house too! Only problem I have with the whole thing is, looking at a map, it looks like about 25 miles from the old place "the way the crow flies", but we ain't crows, and it looks more like about "a HUNDRED & TWENTY FIVE MILES" by a long roundabout road trip, and not to mention that darn toll bridge!
One more thing Steve,.....is it too early to "make an appointment" for the Model T parts garage sale at your old shop?
Steve: That is way too neat, too clean, and too organized.
You are not a true Model T guy.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
I tried to explain to my wife that the purpose of "retiring" was to downsize a bit - she didn't understand what I was attempting to relay, apparently ! 5 acres & 4 bedrooms and her excuse was "we have two grandkids now" - sooo ?
It's about 55 minutes driveway to driveway, Harold BUT there is the Narrows Bridge toll headed eastbound - I was trying to contact the State to possibly procure a "validation" stamp for my family, friends & customers but that didn't happen either ???
Going to be a heck of a sale because I'm not moving all of the parts.
My shop in Milton isn't quite as tidy, R.V. !
Thanks for straightening out the photos, Chris !
Steve,......you're gonna' need a tractor! Maybe one way to look at it is that your good wife and those five acres gives you a great excuse to obtain and restore a Fordson tractor! Of course, being realistic, a Fordson tractor restored by you would be much too nice to actually USE, so'll you'll need something like a Kubota, with a nice assortment of implements to "play with", right? I'm sure it wasn't really necessary to suggest such things to a retired heavy equipment operator tho,.......harold
Steve, what a spectacular place. I'm very happy for you and Diane. Doris and I are eager to come down a pay a visit and see your place first hand. Also, there sure is a good looking Racer for the month of March in Lang's 2016 calendar!
Let me know when you will be having your Milton garage sales, I can always add parts to my inventory.
Beautiful place Steve. Need to make a parts run "just because"!!
Maybe a couple of us will come raid you...
I think I see where next years G.O.M. (Grumpy Old Men) tour is headed.
Nice digs Steve.
Thanks Guys !
Anytime Barry - we have plenty of room for guests !
Any of you local folks can drop me a note to check out my excess parts & meet me over there - I'm still organizing.
Beautiful place! And a nice collection of water bags, too.
You may need to get a collection of doodlebug T tractors to work the property with! That collection could be kept next to your boat-tail collection.
Fantastic place. Congratulations.
Drive carefully, and do enjoy! W2
Yes, I can see a tractor of some sort happening in the near future !
Water bags are my wife's !
