Hey everybody ! I live in the Fort Wayne, IN area. I have been a car collector for many years. But due to the economy car collecting has become a very expensive hobbie. I have reciently purchased my first Goldwing a 78 GL1000 and it is in need of lots of help. I love to tinker with old things so this is my newest project to keep me busy this winter. I was a automotive painter for 30 years so making things pretty is what I know. Making them run....well we'll see how I do at that. I just keep telling myself its just a bunch of nuts and bolts. I like to take things that most folks would just shake their heads at and say what are you thinking and turn it back into something nice again. The reward is being able to stand back and tell yourself I did that. But then there is that little guy in my head that says "Dude you have lost your mind!"
