Merry Christmas EVERYONE!

Merry Christmas to all! I hope everyone discovers something positive during this break (family, life, cars, motorcycles, machines, tools). I am in Minnesota and its cold just how I like it!! Check out all of the snow and ice. I re-discovered why I love Minnesota. What'll YOU share when you get back?

Bye Chris

Cappy is a beautiful example to follow! A HUGE thank you from all of us B.A.D. kids.

So proud!!

All you gotta do to learn is spend a little extra time. Welding is nothing to joke about!! Be proud of the small feats and stare challenges in the eye. I'm so proud of everyone. Remember in September you were all strangers cars. Now...

Classic VW Bugs Visit

Chris Vallone and his father Chris Vallone came by today to show us their 67 beetle. One year car 12v with all the cool styling of the 6v early cars. What a beaut. They offered many words of wisdom and lots of tips. We have a good idea of what they are supposed to look like and motivation is high! THANK YOU www.classicvwbugs.com !
