All Good Things Come To An End

By Crazyfast79TA

We finished the '67 Riviera we had been working on and the customer came in last week and picked it up. This week we had everything done on the '68 Firebird we were fixing another shops screw-ups and it's ready for pick up. I got the interior and inside of trunk area ready for paint on the '64 Sunbeam I've been working on for so long. I was working on my boss's Studebaker pick up truck the past week or so trying to make patches for the rear edges and lower parts of the fenders. Everything seemed to be coming together. But a shop meeting we had near the end of the day today let me know otherwise. The owners decided it was time to downsize. One of the pumper truck drivers got laid off and the other got put down to part-time. The "old timer" part-time body-man got laid off. Dustyn, my step-son, that does the sand blasting, metal fabrication, mechanical work, and interior work got put down to part-time/full-time when needed. I got laid off. All effective today. I should have seen it coming, but the shop always pulled though before. Not this time. Sad day for me. Maybe it is time for me to open my own shop.
