    We just had our son back in June, he is a "Junior" and i am honored to have him carry my name on. He makes number four for us. I am proud of all my kids, they have made me who I am today all in their own special ways.
    Here is a picture of Jr. and NO, mommy wasn't 100% for this picture and she still won't let me take him for his "First minibike ride". LOL!

    My oldest son, in 2000 when we pulled the motor out of my '50 Plymouth project, standing in the back of my '53 Chevy that I bought when I was 14 in 1981.

    And, standing in the back of the same truck this year, after we pulled the motor out of his first project, a '51 Willys Wagon, that he bought with his own money at 14.

    Must be genetic...

    Our son was born in 76 and our daughter in 78. We became a very car oriented family and the kids still talk about the numerous car shows and national events we attended over the years. They were always there when I was working on the cars, and yes they did often help. At 17 they each got their own key to our chopped 37 Chevy sedan. With permission they enjoyed driving that car in school parades, their proms or just for a local cruise. We sold the car in 2000 but last year I found it and bought it back. You should have seen the smile on my daughters face when she got back behind the wheel of that car. Now our 3 grandsons have become my new cruising buddies. They kind of give all my cars names which makes it a little difficult when I sell one. I have had a ball building them pedal cars, tractors, bikes and just playing with them and all their mom and uncles old toy cars
    Our son became a successful engineer and works for GM in Michigan. I am sure he will get an older car some day but for now he has an awesome 99 Z-28 with twin turbo's. When I visit each August we have a great time attending the Woodward Dream Cruise with our cars.
    Our daughter and Son-in-law live nearby and are the parents of the 3 coolest little guys I know. "Pop" is teaching them right. If it has wheels they are all over it.
    Being a dad was very cool. Being a grandpa is unbelievably cool.

    All great posts. The boys and my wife who loves cars are best part of my life. My 3 sons are one of the main reasons we got into the hobby that started with the truck. The roadster picture got us started on our latest project. They help a lot and are saving money from chores to get their first car to tear apart. Thanks to all for sharing these stories.

    Here is a pic of my son and I from this last summer. He has always had an interst in cars, and I know he got it from me. Since he was young he has attended an annual local car swap meet with me, and he told me recently he will always go with me.
    As he has got older he has got more intersted in newer cars...like BMWs and Hondas :eek:. I really don't mind...sometimes I think he says it just to bug me. Kids grow fast, enjoy every age they are at...and as they get older, let them think for themselves, and have there own opionions...even if they say they like BMWs? :eek:

    I love being a dad. My little girl loves anything with wheels and an engine. She lights up and says daddy every time she sees a motorcycle and runs to the Cadillac when I pull the car seat out of my truck. She goes to every cruise night, car show, and bike show with her daddy.

    All great stuff! Being a Dad is the only career that costs money and is still better than making ten million a year.

    My daughter (16) and I are building a 1951 GMC truck, it is hers and she has the say on what it will look like, bagged, steelies with wide wides, patina with a 1960 Chrysler dash. It was a barn find and needs alot of metal work, doesn't matter, she loves doing metal work and welding, she comes to the Syracuse Nationals every year and all the local cruise nights and shows, know what she likes and doesn't like. My two boys (11 and 13) are getting right into it as well, they are already thinking about their projects.
