At a recent car show an older guy I know and I were wandering around looking at cars and talking. He said, "I have no problem with these young guys and their ricer's. When I was younger and driving a tri 5 the old guys made fun of me. Everyone has to start somewhere." I have to agree with him. They can buy and old S10 for cheap, put some bags in it, maybe a SBC or add a turbo whatever and do it on the cheap. I truly believe that as the young guys grow up and get better paying jobs they will enter the hot rod market. I know one 20 something kid who has a fine S10. He came up to me and said, "I wish I could afford a hot rod but I have this S10 for now and someday I will have the money to get what I want." I do not think it will die out, I think the young guys are out there just waiting their chance. I know I went 14 years without a project or a hot rod in the drive. It took me that long to get in a place financially where I could build another hot rod. I looked in the mirror and realized I was one of the old guys and said to myself; I now know why it seems the hobby revolves around old guys, we are just young guys with grey hair and a little financial peace.
