I've watched this film a bunch of times, reminds me of Rancho Deluxe, the same quiet passion and devotion to simplicity and craftmanship.
The same can be said about the Film-maker, make sure you see the others in the series, although off topic, they are equally compelling.
These films make me feel hopeful about the future of craftsmanship and manufacturing in our country. Perhaps not everyone in a generation has been lost to vidoe games, there are still folks who care about creating with their hands, but I guess that's Ryan's point, isn't it.
I have my young son watch all these, I think it's working, he wants to start a businees building Long Boards after school and at the Ty-rods show last week he asked me if I thought it was still possible to find a T roadster body to build!

One of the things I love about the HAMB is that most of the guys and gals on here are trying to pass our love of things mechanical and pride in doing it ourself on to the future generations. Keep up the good work.
Later,
Dick

Things are good. I would have loved to be there but I had some family plans I couldn't break. Your model T is PERFECT-OOOO! Can't wait to see it in the flesh and go for a ride
