Default Corpo - Just Checking in

Hey guys,

Happy to see many of the same familiar names still around the board, I haven't been really around in years, been focused on the house we bought out of foreclosure (which is now 99% done) and on family, I now have two kids, my daughter is going to be 4 soon, and my son will be 1 next month.

My daughter loves everything cars, much to the dismay of her grandmothers who expected her to love dolls and dresses. Honestly not 100% sure where she got it from since it hasn't been really a part of my life in recent years. Last year she was a firetruck for Halloween, this year she was lightning McQueen from Disney/Pixar cars. I made the costumes both years and they were big hits.

The truck hasn't been off the jack stands since right before I got married and bought this house just over 6 years ago.. Crazy. My wife reminds me that its good I built it and squeezed out "finishing" it right before life got crazy. We are getting ready for our next chapter and I know it will include another build. If anyone has a lead on a 55-58 suburban, thats what I have my mind set on, if I can find one within budget, they seem to be worth their weight in gold.

We are starting to wind down our chapter in the city.. kids needing to go to school and needing space to run. We have a contract on a place in WI. Its not exactly what we were hoping for but we have been looking for 2+ years and cant wait forever. I was really hoping for more land, or backed up to woods to get that sense of endless space.

Anyway, its on 1.5 acres and it has a 4+ car garage!!! its two car tandem deep with a little shop on the back, honestly still not big enough, but much better than the no garage situation I am currently in. Oh did mention, its an old school built in 1915? yeah why would I do anything normal like buy a regular house? The building needs a bunch of work, but that's why we could afford it.

Anyway, just wanted to check in on you all. I need to continue to dig around and see what you guys have been up to!
