I'm a Virgo too and shackled by the burden of perfectionism. In my case its self flagellation and to date after 40 years of trying i've never achieved it. I'm not talking about show quality cars, to me they are not the perfect hot rod but a bent toward one upmanship. I havent got a competitive bone in my body, the only competition is with myself to do better next time its a lonely hobby these days, we toil away in sheds accompanied by our projects and imagination. The perfect hot rod is a misnomer, there isn't such a thing, if there were they would all be the same kinda like a BMW or AUDI .. and really,who wants either of those pieces of mass produced crap.. Perfection is like Beauty. Its in the eye of the beholder . A pitted frame, a blister of rust, a dent or scratch, they all add to the soul of the car to perfectly age it If perfect means flawless then its impossible to achieve since it would have to appeal to everyone .. That's not reality thankfully. At 55 im just looking toward getting another hot rod on the road My perfection has saly eluded me so far. for 40 years I have wanted a flthead powered totally vintage parts inventory hot rod, no fancy pants parts, a manky old flathead a pitted 32 frame , a beat up original 30 coupe body with a reasonable chop, minimal interior, 16 inch steels and X plys. That would be my perfection,. I have all the bits , but the frame isnt as pitted as I would expect lol.. so I guess i will miss the boat again.. BUT lets face it, the climate phoneys are brainwashing people quicker than we can educate them to the truth that the climate is sound its the raping of the planet that's the big problem and unfortunately its all going to see an eventual end to our lifestyle .. SO in the tie I have left Im going to make sure I give it my best shot to ride in "MY" PERFECT hot rod . enjoy our PERFECT hobby while you still can and stop bitching Carry on men ..
