    Thought you guys might get a kick out of the 29 I built for my daughter to drive. Pinto powered. After a couple of years sold it to give each kid a down payment on their first rides. This was in 81..she's 45 now..GASP! Last time I saw it, it was pink with a sbc. ah well..

    When you cut through all the crap, that's what it's really all about isn't it?

    My Dad gave me this 65 Plymouth when I was 15, that was in 1983. I still have it, though it hasn't been driven in 10 years or more. I still think the "old man" is about the coolest guy I know.

  9. Got my licence when I was 15 and my Dad let me drive his '47 Olds.
    I was more than happy with that.
    Then I bought my own '47 Ford with his help.

    Let's see (3 boys), let them find the trucks they wanted to build when they turned 15....

    Oldest boy has a 1950 F1 w/ flathead 8....still owns it at 29 yrs old now
    Middle boy had a 1955 F100 ....sold it years ago , is 27 yrs old now
    Youngest boy has a 1940 pickup(in avatar) still has it, he's 25 yrs old

    Now it's time for me to work on the Lafayette for me!

  11. NICE! Well maybe not the pink or SBC part, but you are a cool dad!!
     
  12. At 16 I ihad been driving for two years in a car I learned bodywork on from a pro (a mentor and huntin pal) and was working on a Henry J, all with the help and blessing of my dad. Ironically I worked after school for said mentor in his bodyshop. Repainted several trucks for a company my dad and I now work for 25 years later!
