Shop Therapy: How to soothe a gearhead's nerves

Check out these photos
by Paulo Rafael Subido | May 7, 2012

There are times when I feel very edgy and restless, but this was especially true for me last week. I think it was because I was incapacitated due to a back injury, and have been unable to do so many car-related tasks. Driving and wrenching under the hood were out of the question for a while, and it was depressing. I do hope you forgive me for my lack of blog updates. But as soon as I got back on my feet, I knew had to get back into my usual routine. I decided to bring the wagon to the shop for some long-overdue repairs last Saturday, and what I knew all along was once again reinforced: spending time at the talyer is one of best ways for me to relax.

To break from the usual posts, here are some photos that I took while I was having my dad's wagon repaired. I felt so calm while in the middle of this messy workspace, but at the same time I felt my spirit recharging. I guess that is what it is like when you have a carburetor-fed heart.

Look at that smile on my face. Man, I love working on my cars. Do you guys enjoy working on your rides, too?
