Shot of Brandon a few years ago (2004?)...
This is of Logan taken tonight...
i dont know but i like the new entertainment center. ahahaha
but hell yes your raising them right. now buy em a set of tools so they can fix there own things
I'm working on that, funny you mention it. Trying to raise funds to buy my Grandpa's tools, selling some of my stuff on ebay and craigslist.
you doin great ..
I see he values his wheels........(bike in the house)
HAHAH that's daddy's bike (I may give it to Logan someday).
Here is Brandon on his. Mine can pull a trailer
I got to hand it to ya.That boy has been well brought up.Its really nice to se young kid's following in our footsteps.
Good luck and I hope he keeps the fever for it as we have for all these years.
those 2 movies will give those kids the bug for sure! better start making room in the garage for another project!!
Read Wild at Heart.
I really like the sting ray and the M&M hot rod. Nice touch.
Just spending quality time with them gives you an A.
It's great. My Dad was a bodyshop manager/bodyman/painter all his life and I started hanging with him in 1952, at Morris Buick in Detroit, when I was 7 years old. You're never too young to love cars.
You spend quality time with them. That's more than a lot of dads do, so great job. Now, raise one to be a mechanic and teach the other the art of chrome plating. Maybe later, add a paint and body man and then an upholsterer. You'll have the bases covered!
Ha, ha...you are on the right track. Now get them out from in front of the TV and into the garage.
That coupled with honesty and integrity and they will be fine upstanding tax paying citizens. Hugs from and old guy.
Is there any better way, I ask?I don't think so.Good work!
I think they're in good hands, with or without the car hobby influences. Enjoy these years, they go by all too soon. But then you get grandkids, so it ain't too bad a deal!
Good job, Dad!
HAHA those are some funny but cool pictures. i am to young to have kids but i hope mine are that into cars/dirtbikes.
That is cool, kinda how I grew up!
I have to ask though, buying your grandfathers tools?
What ever happened to family Heirlooms? Id rather a tool set than a dinner set any day!
Completely aside from the educational programming, you're raising them right just by being a presence in their lives. It's a shame a lot of kids aren't so lucky.
So.. how long have you been divorced?
Speaking of youth, We am collecting stories on young men who are into cars, my lastest was a boy 16 years of age who's Grandpa gave him his car, Zack, the 16 year old had the car out at a local cruise 4 days after he had his license with his mom in tow. The Story of these young men will follow in a future feature of Still Runnin Magazine.
The reason I mention this is ... this thread may have some of you out there knowing of other young boys / men that you can send my way. We would like to involve the youth in the mag, encourage them what a great hobby this is, after all they are the hobbies future!
If you know of any of our next generation kids email me at email@example.com we'd like to hear from them and see what they have.
PS. My boy got a Matchbox car everytime we went to the grocery store, his first words were "VROOM" LOL and yup he grew up to be one hell of a welder and body man and owns several cars - his pride a joy a 68 Camero he drove his Senior year of High School paid for by himself!
