    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!:D

    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!

    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.

    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 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!
