So my young friend Tim from Nevada (tbraginton on the Hamb) is here in Kansas going to school at the well known McPherson College to earn a degree in Automobile Restoration and has been to visit me a few times. He is just itching to build a hot rod but that's hard to do on a college budget. He is the same age as my own college son (Kevin) who has no interest in cars at all. He was asking me the other day if I had a roadster cowl and Model A frame for sale and I told him I was keeping that stuff for my own projects. But after talking it over with Mrs. Povertyflats for a couple days I decided to make him an offer he couldn't refuse. I will donate the parts to build a car and he will do all the work. He can play with it until he gets out of school (he only has one more year) and then we will sell the car and split the money 50/50. Since I am not a car builder myself, I can benefit as well by using his labor. Should be a win win situation for us both. Anyway, young Tim gets to build whatever he wants. He is the designer and builder. I furnish the parts and the dough (until I run out). My only requirement is that he does not build a rat rod. I want it to be safe and period correct with paint on it of some kind. Will we succeed or fail? Probably doesn't really matter as long as we have fun and maybe both of us will learn something. Stay tuned.
