I don't really believe in all that junk but let me explain a little. I was 5 years old my Dad with his growing new family hadn't had as much money to keep the hot rod going. I think the ignition was out but we still went for rides and car shows every once and a while. He would take a wire and ground it out on a screw on the shifter boot and the car would start. Well as a young boy he didn't show me how to start it but seeing the spark of that wire was cool and that must be how all hot rods start right? While playing in the car one day pretending to drive I took the wire and touched it to the screw and got a little spark way cool next thing you know it was lunch time and mom is hollering for me to get inside. I guess I let go of the wire hopped out of the car shut the door and in the house I went. This is when the wire falls on the screw and shorts out the whole wiring system. 40 years later I find and buy this car back to restore it to the way it looked when my dad had built it. Well after a 5 year build, motor problems I finally have it ready for this last summer. I'm just about ready for Back to the 50s back in June pushed the car out of the garage popped it into 1st gear closed the overhead door grabbed my little rubber sanding block that I use for a wheel choc and walk out the side door to find my car had rolled down my drive way and was building up a good head of steam heading for my neighbors garage. I took off running and got behind it just in time to see it smash int the garage. tail lights shattered fenders,roll pan and trunk area pulverized. I told my wife I'm done going to go sit in a bar just like everyone else in Wisconsin. She called my Dad and my Son and after a few hours we had it all straightened out and within the next day I had the paint touched up and away we go. We made it to Minnisota and back had a great time and no problems. Next up the Melt Down Drags drive there and back no problems had the best time ever. The only problems I've had is oil leaks and warping thermostat housings that easy. One morning the car wouldn't start I load tested the battery and it was junk took it out from under the car to replace. I got a new battery. Still under full replacement warranty so all is good. I crawl under the car lift the battery over my head and start to move it in place. The battery slips out of my hand and falls luckily my Head broke its fall after a few choice words I got it in place crawled out from under the car and there is my wife. By this time the blood was dripping off my nose. Know I'm not just injured I'm getting yelled at. I go inside to clean up and see a hole right in the middle of my forehead. The corner of a new battery is pointy. I go out side and finish the battery replacement and start up the car all is well. The next day the battery is dead and the car won't start. I charge it and hook up a test light and pull fuses. With all the fuses out the light is still lit up? I pulled the wire off the alternator and still lit up what's left pull the wire off the starter and there it is light out. Pull the starter apart and find its shorting out. Clean it up and put it back in everything is good car starts no battery drain all is good. I start to clean up look over at the car and smoke is pouring out of the starter. Off to the machine shop to see if they can fix my 280.00 dollar power master starter. The machine shop tells me it's a cheap Chinese starter and its junk he can get me an American made one for 250.00. Back in the car and everything is working good. I'm thinking to just park it for the winter and hope to call a truce with the car. To make a really long story short ,I shorted out the wiring when I was 5 my dad sold the car it had a shitty life for 40 years. I bought it and restored it to what it once was and It beat the shit out of me and pushed me to the limit so do you think we are even.?
