    Yes it is. He could not make me any prouder. He is my garage partner and shares my love for anything with a motor or wheels.

    You have NO idea how great it will be. It is like a switch flips and your life begins when you have your first one. One of the greatest parts of being a Dad is watching them learn from you and their Mom and start developing their own personalities.

    I would come home from a bad day at work and would be greeted by the two of mine running down the stairs, happy to see me. It would turn the whole day around..............and I still have that same relationship (but since they are 41 they don't run down the stairs any more! :p)

    Today Justis (my 8 year old son) helped me change out the seats in the motorhome today, He did all the wrenching himself, socket, ratchet, extensions, allen wrenches, the whole 9 yards. I don't think I have seen him that excited and proud of himseld in a long time.

    No Xbox game can touch that! Love ya buddy!

    My wife thinks I went a little too far with our son. Driving to my parents yesterday we had the radio on playing the usual boring crap. He says "I want hotrod music on!" My wife gives me that "oh my god, what have you done?" look. So I throw in the Chuck Berry CD, and my 3 year old son starts singing "Maybellene"

    Fuckin' classic

    My two girls are almost grown now, the oldest is at university and the youngest is about to leave school (20 &15) I have dragged them 'round car shows and to my workshop all their lives but they don't have much interest in old cars. I don't care as long as we spend time together like in the photo taken last year when we were on vacation in Spain.
    I have wonderful memories of them growing up. The oldest has the sweetest nature and the youngest is really funny with constant one liners that have us all in fits of laughter.

    As an "Olds Dad", I aptly named my girls after two of the prettiest Olds ever made - Holiday & Starfire.

    My Holiday (6) tells me daily about the "cool car" she saw on the school bus -

    My Starfire (2) talks about "daddy's cars" regularly.

    At this stage, they both like them and are excited about them...the trick will be to keep them interested...regardless, best part about it is sharing it with them...

    My daughter is 15 and loves horses but she works with me in the garage whenever I ask, without complaining. She helped me change out the motor mounts on my daily driver and has done a little bit of karting. She loves riding around in our older cars and I know she is looking forward to driving them. It's hard with her schedule but I try to make time everyday to talk to her and find out what's going on in her life. She still holds my hand when we walk around in public :)
     
  19. This is a little long winded but I think it's worth reading....

    My two boy's and I went to a little Mom and Pop Drag strip tucked away in the hills of Tennessee one night and as we drove in I saw this Cherry red 53 ford on a flatbed trailer parked in the pit area. I told my boy's "My Father had one like that when I was a Kid back in Texas but he sold it when I was a Teen" so we went over to look at it just to bring back memories since my Father had just passed away about a year earlier. The car was for sale so we talked to the guy who owned it and told him how my Father had one just like it only his was green. I told him I didn't have the money to buy it and wished him luck in selling it. As I went to shake his hand he asked me my name, I told him and he got the strangest look on his face, then said "You gotta see this" and went to the car and got two receipts from the glove box and handed them to me. The receipts were for a 6V battery; it wouldn't hold a charge and was returned for another. The receipts were signed by my Father, Raymond Sr. After 20 years, the car found me... Needless to say, I got the Money, did a little trading and got the car back. I'm doing all the thing with my boy's that My Father and I did with this car in my childhood.

    This picture about says it all years ahead of time.

    Fast forward about 8 years and my little girl is the one who WANTS to work on the cars and make suggestions and just like the sacked out days in the back seat the boys are asleep at the wheel on wanting to do anything on my old cars.

    Not going to force them either.

    She is allot prettier than them anyway ha ha

    At least one out of three likes the classics:)

    Maybe someone asked this before (haven't read all the posts) but do grandkids count?
