    Default 3 wives, a bad ticker, and too many projects

    Just a quick hello to everyone on this site. I'm a red seal certified technician with a love for not only custom cars (ALTHOUGH I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE GM engines in anything except garbage made carelessly products) but for restorations as well. At the present time I have 3 1952-'54 Austin Somersets, a '53 International 1 ton, and a 1933 Morris 10. The Austins are all in various states of disrepair as I have recently gotten them home, The International is all but ready to drive (7.3 Navistar diesel powered) and the Morris has a freshly rebuilt engine.

    Thanks for the responses, I forgot to mention I have only invested (cash) $2000.00 in TOTAL for all of them, The green Austin cost me $500, as well as the International originally, I then found an F350 for the drive train for $1000. The other 2 Austins I traded an old van that was given to me, and the Morris is part payment on a resto- rod 1968 Ford Falcon. Hopefully this summer I'll be cruising in the 'Binder and starting the first of the Austins. The story on my getting 3 Austins home is in the British Saloon Car Club of Canada as they were challenges in and of themselves.

    I just wish the weather would clear up...Every weekend it seems to be even more disgusting, it's snowing right now.
