I figured I should probably post up some pics of the 74 Colt and what Todd has been doing to it. Yeah, I help a little bit here and there, but he's done most of it.

It is really nice to see this car being resurrected! Good work!

The rally falls on the weekend of my wedding anniversary. Laura would kill me if I left town!

What, going to a rally isn't a great anniversary trip? No? Well then, I guess staying in town might be the better option.

Ya know just a little creativity, like "Say honey, let's go to a romantic getaway down in Hood river"

A nice dinner, some wine, some nice husbandly duties (ba-boom ba-boom ba boom!) then in the morning "Oh look! Rally cars! I wonder if there's an event going on, let's just ask"

Problem solved!

I bet this is a great time for a wine country tour of the area around Hood River. We had some from Walla Walla last night that was delicious.

Love the claw hammer in the trunk....inbreds....

Nice restoration. I can remember when Colts and Arrows pretty much ruled the roost with Datsun and Mazda close behind. Damn I miss those old cars.
