    Project: Tipsy the Boler Before

    Tipsy the Boler before – it’s hard to call this post a before since it’s actually more like an in-between. When we got Tipsy back in 2012 we travelled in her for the first time in 2014 and then spent that summer fixing her up for a 3 month road trip down to the California / Mexican border. This ‘before’ however, is the before her last overhaul. So, let’s take a look at some of these before photos. Tipsy the Boler Before See the grind…

    Toots the Boler before the overhaul. This little guy is called Toots – mainly because he had a bit of a toot-y smell to him when we picked him up in British Columbia a while back. Toots the Boler Before Toots is a 1971 Boler. He came with a stove, and ice box and a sink. Oh, and our favourite part – the driver’s side is originally vent and window (the little one by the stove) free! Looks like a sweet little project. Well, this…
