New Year, New Car Projects

Some do new year’s resolutions, but for the Gasoline Girls and many car people, the turn of a new year is time to think about goals for what’s in your garage. Maybe it’s a long-term project or maybe it’s something you want to get done before a certain car show or adventure… but usually the list is longer than what any of us have time or money for!
