This is probably a little to goody-goody post to be here on the "HOODLUM" channel, but its means the world to me and I consider myself a Hoodlum from way back! After returning home from the 05 Hamb Drags, life was good,super cars and the best of people, this is usally the time of year, I think of new projects, and I usally always get a case of the post Hamb Drags "BLUES"""""""""""!But not this year, Im busy living a dream. I will try and be brief as possible, but it aint a short story. Some here may remember the first year of the Hamb drags, I was there in my x-4 door 60 starliner, better known as the scarliner due to all the surgery welds, that happens when you take a 4 door sedan, make it a two door hardtop and change the drivetrain, from a 6 stick to a 460 4 speed, in about 30 days!Thanks to choprods and a host of other hardcore car guys, close friends, without thier help, this car would not exist. The car was a dream of mine and I drove it for about 2 years as was and loved every moment.But the car was never finished and I some how moved on to my 27 T project and the 60 was back burnered, a pattern that happens real often, here on the Hamb! Fast forward to the day I came home from work to find the 60 well on its way to major dis-assembly and my son, in the middle of a pile of parts that was once my dream! At first I was shook up, should I be mad and yell? The thought crossed my mind, but better judgement kicked in after my son, spoke up and said these word. Dad, hope you dont mind, but I always liked this car and thought it would be real cool finished, and since you havent touched it in a while, would you mind if I tried to do it, with your help and it would still be your car? Well its hard to argue with truthful words and I said why not? Its gonna be yours when Im gone anyway.And I thought, the car was a small price to pay, for a father son relationship, that could last a life time, something that many fathers never see fulfilled. The truth was, my son had never been taught anything about cars, by me at least, I felt he could pick up his natural talent and do what ever he liked, be it cars or whatever.I wasnt going to be a parent that forced thier kid to do something they didnt want to do! That was a big mistake! Now I know kids need to be shown a lot of basics, while they are young and will listen to mom and dad.Luckily for me, all my kids must have payed attention to thier mom and have turned out pretty well. To make the story shorter, me and my son have been spending quality time at home in the garage at nights working on the old scarliner, way more time together, than when he was in high school. We have been comparing thoughts and ideals of how we both think the car should be built, Ive had to give into some of his wants and he to some of mine, but generally, we both agree to how it should be and it looks like we are on our way with it. Yes I am living a dream, spending good quality time, working together with my son, on a car and both of us getting to know the other one better, and both of us learning a few things as we progress. Up this point its mainly been dis-assembly, which I know will be the easy part, but Im here to tell you, he seems very content on finishing the job and doing it right, he is about to wear the old man out! I havent been this busy working on a car , well since, two weeks ago! Getting the T ready to go to MO-KAN! Life is good! I think helping him, has inspired me to get busy on some of my stuff! Any other Hambers have anything similar to this happening with them or has happened in the past? I would loike to hear about it. Forgive the bad pic, it was taken during a week night of him working on the car, around ten at night, and yes we both had to work the next day!
