8 or 9 years ago, near as I can remember, which isn't too well anymore, I bought a basket case of a 1948 "G" for $650. No starter, no carburetor, fuel tank mounts butchered, modified and hacked, cheap paint that looked more like old Oliver green, etc. I wanted to fully restore it, but I made myself get it running before tearing it down and had the head work done, the block bored, new pistons, etc. Then I tore it down completely (and I mean completely) and started over. I sand-blasted the frame and pedestal with a little gravity blaster, wire-wheeled the axle housing, primed those pieces etc and reassembled the transmission and rear axle. Lots of late nights and early mornings and long weekends moving it into the shop after work and back out before work. Then it sat for 6 or 7 years, outside for the last 5. Now it looks like I get to start over again. The transmission input shaft won't turn, the shifter won't move, etc etc etc. And that's reason #1546 why I'm an idiot.
