Way Blue in it’s original state… rusty!

Way Blue in it's original state... rusty!

Before the custom work… we started in Borrego Springs, and moved it to Palm Desert where we added a garage to our home so my hubby could restore this little gem.  It started up with a big puff of blue smoke, and then it’s journey began!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far “Way Blue”

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/weekly-photo-challenge-near-and-far/

Our hot rod (1939 Dodge businessman’s coupe) that we call “Way Blue”, posing with a mountain view… arms open to welcome the new day!  We had the color custom made combining three shades of blue to get exactly what we wanted.

Restored from it’s original condition by my husband who redesigned the body work and oversaw all transitional engine, drive train, etc.  I got to pick the wheels (Asanti) and design the interior.

Our labor of love.

Spent the day moving… (yawn!)

 

My husband and I finished the move from the rented condo to the home we own in Borrego Springs.  Our tenant moved out last month and it didn’t make sense to rent the condo any longer.

We lived in our home back in 1994-1997 before we moved to Palm Desert… and have leased it to others since then.  It is a three bedroom, two bath and he was living in a one bedroom condo for a few months… now he has a garage to tinker in, and lots of room to roam about.

I go to stay there once a week for a day or two… but we maintain our full time residence in P.D.

We are blessed to have choices.

I miss him being home every night, but we are grateful for the awesome job he has as the QA/QC manager for a 200 acre solar project.

I will go back to Borrego tomorrow to meet with Larry the Cable Guy, just kidding, don’t know his name LOL.

Taking my camera tomorrow so I can take some photos for my challenge.

Missed a day and look forward to getting back on the horse tomorrow.

You can see the posts that will hold the Solar arrays in a line thru the fence… thousands of them!!! 200 acres worth!
