  2. That's cool guys !
    Keep up the good work.
    Hats off to ya.
     
  3. Chopperman: PTL what a great work you guys are involved in! Are the cars in the pics customers cars or are they project cars for re-sell to help fund the ministry? How is it funded? Benefactors maybe? Anyway, its a blessing to see someone doing the stuff and not just talking about it, stick with it. Tim

    May not be the prescribed type of vehicle here but I like em! Great looking cars that you and the guys built! What do they do with them afterwards? I didn't see it mentioned. Putting a piece of old carpet under the assembly area ia a good idea. Makes crawling about on your back, hands ,and knees a bit easier!
    Fantastic idea for kids to get invloved in.
    Thanks for your post and the work you and the other men do for these kids.

    Great thing you all are doing there, there are so many young people, that just need a nudge in the right direction, or someone to give them, the time and knowledge, and show them they are capable, of doing, whatever they can dream of, with an ideal and a little hard work, by using tools and your head.Plus it is great for the teachers involved and the future of hot rodding.If just one kid is changed from this program, then it is a huge success! Thanks to all involved!

    Cool, how this was this funded?. I have taught youngsters, it would be fun to do something like this. It would never happen here in the UK too many laws and rules.

    Lots of donations, fundraising, and proceeds from the last build. Many like me, simply donate time. From what I saw it takes a good year of prep to get things in order.

    Like Chad said, just a stone throw from me also. Didn't hear anything about it until I saw a 2 minute film on the local news. Good thing you guys are doing. Seems it needs more media attention.
