Shopping sprees at the beginning of a new project are always a great deal of fun. I wandered the isles of Princess Auto this afternoon, searching for parts for the 1960’s car themed features we are building. The store wasn’t overly busy and I was asked numerous times by friendly and helpful staff if I needed help. They always started by looking in my shopping cart at the items I had already gathered with puzzlement and then asking what I was building. Judging from the varied and random parts in the buggy I certainly understand their query. It’s never an easy answer. I first have to explain what it is we do which is in itself a hard thing to explain. Then I whip out my phone and show them a concept drawing - much easier than a verbal explanation. Today the parts shopping quest was for the gas pumps, the Volkswagen bug and the tow truck. I still have a few more stops to make to finish my collecting of parts but we are well on our way. This is going to be fun!
