    Nice! I miss lakeside living. My grandparents had a house on a lake in northern Iowa (East Lake Okoboji) and I spent most of my summers and as many weekends as I could there.

    When I was growing up, my grandmother and uncles had a cottage on a nearby lake.
    I spent all my summers there and had many fond memories.
    I hope I can do the same for the my grandchildren.

    It is a small cottage that was built in 1950 that kept getting refurbished and enlarged.
    It has been modified in 3 stages making for a poor floor plan, poor workmanship, and small bedrooms.
    But it is all about the lakefront, sandy bottom, and inviting friends. (You are all welcome to drop by if you are in the Detroit area in the summer)

    I even have the same boats from the old cottage that are still in very good condition.
    One is a 1974 powerboat and a 1960 rowboat!

    The lot is not very much wider than the deck, but it does have a 2-1/2 car garage!
    The garage has no heat and the house has no air conditioning.
    I promised the wife to have central air conditioning installed if we bought the lake house.

    I had tossed around the idea to sell the Miata Manticore to get a dock and lift.
    But I think I will keep the Manticore to finish my vision, it will just be delayed.

    Here are the Enkei wheels mounted. It will need the fenders rolled as the rear tires will rub on bumps.


    And here is a picture of the the interior after moving the Manticore to the lake house.
    I plan to keep the interior pretty much as it is except for a Revlimiter custom speedometer face to adjust for the 3:90 rear end and a roll bar because of the intended driving style. I got the new floormats installed but still need to install the Roadster doorsills.


    I need to buy a car cover to protect it from UV rays as this garage has many windows unlike the old garage.
    That can be my Christmas gift!
