.Yes it was just a fun-project. Got the bus for cheap but it took a lot of money to rebuild.
And selling without finishing was a negative deal for us... however it is long ago.
Our shop now is complete full with new projects, sometimes it is necessary to say no to a great deal
Alone on the both trucks, i think we stay in work the next 2 years, than the trailer...
It is time for our retirement that we have more time for our own projects if we dont want have restrictions than we need to go on 4,5 years.
The next will be the sandblasting of the Sierra Frame - it will be a bit more difficult as the Frame is heavier und bigger than the Chevy Frame. He will not fit on our own trailer. So we need to rent a trailer for transport.
It is here the same - for any building which gone comes big appartmenthouses on it.
There is not enough appartments for all people around they said
Next to us gone a house with a shop beside - an old family business.
Now there is a new house with 8 appartments in the same space
Nevertheless our city is a small country city not more than 25000 people lives here, a typical small country city in a nice green area of westgermany. I love the country live.
Hella is known for their great quality, also if it is now build in China. But of course the switches was always inside the vehicles and not in directly sun, that give also a longer live. The Truck was also the last 15 years stored dry in the back of our shop with a cover on him.
It seems interesting that you are having the same "not enough housing" problems there in Germany. I can't figure out if part of that problem is war related - or if it is just growth in general.
Here in Charlotte, North Carolina we are adding about 120 people per day in 2023. A quick search showed The city grew 1.7% from 2021 to 2022. The city grew 1.7% from 2021 to 2022. December 2022 showed Charlotte metro was 2,701,046 and I've heard we are over 3 million now. I guess we need the apartments - but it sure would be nice if it wasn't happening.
