It was time to say goodbye to the Caddy. We went back and forth on the idea and it pained us to think about selling it. Brendon, our friend who helped us build it, knew it was on his schedule to get our VW pickup on the books at his new shop for a head gasket replacement. The Caddy has been sitting in the driveway for nearly 3 years since coming home and was driven only a handful of times since. It spent most of its life with us as guardian of the driveway. A friend of Brendon reached out and asked us to entertain the idea of selling it to him. No stranger to VWs we knew Josh would be one of few people who might actually revive the Caddy to its fully restored glory. Certainly more than we were willing to take on in the near future anyway. We have 3 other “projects”, after all. That he wanted to restore it with his young son kinda sealed the deal. It was to be a father and son project before we inherited it. As expected we went back and forth a bit on price and when we landed at a number we were able to live with the deal was made and off it went. While we were sad to see it go we feel as if a small burden has been lifted from our shoulders. It’s also nice to have a little piece of the driveway and garage back. Now, what to buy for the other cars?
