Cha Cha Cha Changes

Never really thought this day would come.  I sold Lavera.  Owning this little truck has been a dream come true and I don’t regret a single decision, flub up, fuel gauge fix or Napa Auto Parts bill.  Ok, maybe I regret a few of the hours I spent on the fuel gauge, but other than that… it’s all good.  Even the decision to sell.

I’m not selling because I HAVE to, it’s just time to move on to another project and get behind the wheel of a car that an go a bit farther down the highway.  Lavera is a local, round the town joy ride.  I’ll miss her dearly.

I didn’t actually think it would all happen so fast.  I never posted on Craig’s List or Ebay – just a post here on my blog and I got a couple of hits.  In the end, my SISTER of all people said she’d top any bid by a dollar.  Sorry other people (you know who you are and I appreciate your interest and offers) but family is family and I’d be a heartless fool to turn her down.

So I’ll be in the process of packing her up over the next few weeks to see if I can get her on the road to TEXAS before the snow flies.


Lavera will love the warm weather and probably be topless for the rest of her life.  Sounds good to me.  I’ve only visited Texas twice and both times I grew tired of seeing people that think it’s a good idea to hang metal gonads off of their rear hitch.  If you’ve never seen it, don’t think that I’m kidding here – it’s just what it sounds like.  Nuts on a truck.  I hope the Texas folk will get kick out of seeing what a classy truck really looks like.

So what’s next?  Time to rename the blog I guess.  I’m torn between Cream City Kombi and Cream City Camper?


Stay tuned…

Glad you were able to keep her in the family. She’s a beaut. I’m sure you will work you magic on your next project. Scout on! 🙂
