Hey All, I should have done this a long time ago. I didn't do it, because I was a bit embarrassed by reading some of the build threads, and knowing that 90% of theme were dont by guys working on thier own cars, and I don't. It's not hat I am not motivated, but many factors. One, I have not a single piece of knowledge on how to work on a car. Second, I don't own a garage, which doesnt matter, because I wouldnt know what to do with a garage, refer to factor 1. Lastly, refer to factor 1. Its not that I dont have the desire, it's just that I'm 38, have never been very techincal or hands on, and because of my job there's no way i could go to school or stock up on tools, and work on a car in my living situation. I ust really got into cars, 2 years ago.That's my story. All you (Lately) A-Holes that have something to say about how I go about having my ride, can keep your opinions to yourself. All the rest of you guys, the respectable, and Honorable HAMBERS who want to give opinions on the work you are seeing, then please critic as often and however you want.. So about 10months ago, I just finished a tour, and wanted to "add a check to the bucket list." Gets real gay now..oh forget it, i'm not telling you guys, lets just say a certain black convertable Merc from a movie, sparked my love for a certain said vehicle. BEcause of having a very busy life, and the dream of being able to own something like that car, became a forgotten dream. Until I met mywife, and all of a sudden ( my wifes family is huge in the car world) that forgotten dream of owning a Merc, came back.. So I start the search, and I go through Ebay, Antique Auto trader, etc. etc etc.
