With the economy booming, car sales skyrocketing, and piles of cash heaped so high on the average desk that they obstruct this very blog, the time has come for it to follow many of the vehicles that have been mentioned here–Studebaker, Packard, Tucker, Plymouth, Hudson, Duesenberg, Auburn, Cord, Shelby, Vincent, Norton, BSA, Ariel, Corvair, Stutz, Triumph, MG, Austin Healey, Sunbeam….
It has been a pleasure to write for you, to meet you at car and motorcycle events, to trade ideas with you on these pages, and to further automotive tales and daydreams.
My Weekend Garage column will still appear in the Star Tribune and my books…
Survivor Motorcycle: Tips and Tales in the Unrestored Realm (2009, pending)
…are available through Amazon.com and elsewhere for anyone who liked the prose and stories here. More books are likely to follow and someday, perhaps, I will have my very own blog on cars, motorcycles, films, funny fiction and other stuff that makes life worth living.
Keep turning wrenches, reading, writing and talking about the vehicles you love, and I’ll see you around the roads and the shows. Again, it’s been a pleasure shooting the breeze with all of you in cyberspace.
Peace. Kris Palmer
