I must know if I have absolutely
With that said...
Hubs has this great old truck that he wants to restore. Actually it will be a resto-mod, which I've learned means that it will be an old vehicle with some modern amenties (power steering and such).
On Saturday and Sunday mornings the living room is his man cave. And for the entirety of our glorious married life - I've watched 4 hours of car television on Speed and Spike every weekend. Quality time I tell you. And much of these 4 hours is spent wondering what in the sam hill they're talking about - while hubs drools and tunes me out.
So, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em right?
I told Hubs I want to help him. Out in the man cave. On the truck (gasp). And with that deer-in-the-headlights-running-towards-a-motorcycle-stare he lovingly repled "Do what?!"
So I explained that I don't know a lot about cars and think this would be a good opportunity to learn. We work great on the house together, why not the truck? It may take him infinitely longer to work through the restoration, but it would give me some background when things go wrong on other vehicles we own. Ya know, so I'm not at the mercy of da man.
Seriously - I can't even change the oil and not totally sure I could change a tire... and have to make funny noises when I try to explain what my car is doing. We've all been there. But I don't want to be, I want to have a little more know-how outside of my craft blog obsession.
But in true blogger fashion - Hubs and I may start a blog to chronicle this endeavor. Would you expect any less? It will be us.. well me... learning about cars, and fixing things, and basic car principles. Out in the man cave. In the grease and glory of it all.
And it will show our progress. My learning curves. Our decisions. Explain some car things that are foreign to any person that doesn't do anything but drive. Give links to where we found answers to our road blocks (no pun intended). Maybe give some tutorials.
This is where you come in.
Am I over-committing myself (ya know, what a baby and all and my own craft obsession)? Is it completely crazy for me to try and learn about cars through a complete overhaul? Would you read it?
Let me know. You must comment - blogger or not. It's easy, just click "comment". Duh.
(Oh yeah - the truck is pictured over there in my 365 log).
