Peanut the Mechanic

If you haven't had a chance to watch the video in the below post make sure you do that before leaving today. It's something!

Here are some more pictures of my mechanics. She and her daddy are working on my 1979 Z28 Camaro. The motor and transmission are both shot so they are pulling stuff off to be able to pull the motor out and replace it with my father-in-laws motor (don't get me started about how emotional I am about having the motor he built put in my car just know how touched I am).

Of course Daddy did all the hard stuff. Here, Peanut is using a ratchet to loosen up some bolts that were holding down the carborator and distributor. She had already removed all the plug wires.

That is impressive. Do you think she could fix the power-window switch on my mother's car?

That is some daughter you've got going there. Wow.

That's amazing! She looks like she knows exactly what she's doing. My buddy's Millenium Falcon needs the hyperdrive tweaked for our next trip to Alderran. Ya think maybe...?

Leslee said...

Mugsy and Jeremiah, it's been my experience that she's pretty expensive. She is a girl after all and you know what girls like- shiney stuff. You're welcome to call and see if she can fit you in. But she is still working on getting the motor out of my car. Maybe I'll pictures of that this weekend.

What great photos! It looks like you are raising her to be a strong, capable woman.

Knowing how to fix a car is going to be a useful skill. I've always been grateful to my dad for making me learn how to change oil and tires and such, and we never got this advanced!

What a great series of photos. I loved the video as well, I saw it over at jo(e)'s.
