    Well lets see em !I know alot of you guys got pictures of your "future hambers" helping you out on a car build . I myself got 5 kids ranging from 20 all the way down to 8 yrs of age . All of them love old rusty iron . chrome , race cars . and cruise nites. I know Im not alone out here trying to pass the torch on the love I have for this hobby. Ive only been able to find a few pictures at the time of me thinking about this thread .Ill see if I can locate some more. One of the shots is of RAY. One of my oldest He bought that truck for $250 saying he wanted to make a cruiser out of it.So far so good. The other shots is of my two little ones Samson and Gabriella . Those two love cars and are able to hand me a tool out of the box if Im stuck under a ride and dont have the right tool handy.Our kids are the future of this sport guys ! Lets see some more pictures !

    I failed! My boys are fast and furious fans. My car is a horse and buggy to them.

    My nephew came up to help me put the engine back in my '60 Cadillac. He seems to have a budding interest in cars and even found out about and asked me to take him to a local car show here.

    My father owned a GM dealership for 33 years. This was shortly before the back-stabbing garbage at GM came in a shut us down (it's not that they shut us down, it's HOW they shut us down, and the money they still refuse to pay us). As I've mentioned before, the building, which had been there since the '20s, is now literally a parking lot.

    We took this one after an accidental spill of transmission fluid. We both thought it would be a great way to really mess with his mother. Hehe.

    My son Austin was the ony one around at the time whose hand was small enough to test the operation of the float/gauge in this fuel cell.

    It's never too late!
    When I was younger I didn't care much about old cars (I liked em just didn't know anything, hell still don't). All the kids were into imports. My dad & I would go to car shows and he would talk about how he wanted to fix up his 38 chevy thats sitting in the woods. At the time I wasn't real interested. (too busy chasing girls and the such) It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I started getting on him to do some work on his 38. I ended up buying a 54 chevy pickup last year that takes up my/our shop time for now but as soon as it's running I'm diving into dads 38. I can't wait to get that one started. I figure it's better late than never.
