Good point Jano, I will be thankful and glad if I am in your shoes when my son gets out of high school and knows the direction he is going in and has the drive to get there. I just have to harness all of his energy and keep him going in the right direction. If he really has a passion for welding or talent using his hands I will be his biggest fan. I just want to make sure I expose him to enough diverse subjects and activities that he ends up really finding himself along the way, and realizes what makes him tick.
“do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” 
or rather: identify which skills he has that could be rare and valuable in the workplace – and then to hone those skills till he has career capital that he can spend in the way he chooses. Wink

Well my car only has the green on it, luckily nobody ever thought to " clean " up the engine compartment . But you can see the B was a lot more crisp than the P or the T.

Seriously though, I am going to keep acquiring vehicles/projects, if my son gets into and then had a friend(s) who had a passion for it I wouldn't mind hooking them up with a deal on a project car, getting out the mig welder doing some patch panels with them, buy a gallon of bondo and get some elbow grease out and teach them the value and skill of doing your own body work.  & then Shoot them in primer. Hell if they bought the paint I would paint them up for them as well.  I can paint good enough for a teenagers daily driver. Time will tell

Well owning old cars in the future may be a who you know type thing (to get a deal), kinda like getting into the fire dept....
( I couldn't beat out the chiefs son and a minority no matter how good my test scores were) sorry Jano had to throw that in there.  Cry Grin

I tell my kids and grandkids that I'll probably have to *turn my cars into food* in my retirement..  Smiley

Gary I think you could eat well just by selling one!
just depends on your appetite ....

did you tell him your going to buried in it???  Cheesy (great photo)
I have already started telling my kids they need to pick out their own ride that we can fix up. They just saw me turn out a convertible, so they are starting to realize you can shine these old cars up like an old penny, you don't need to start off with a polished gem. So in about 10 years I have the idea of a base car (60's mustang camaro cuda, or a shoe box) and then making a nice clone: yenko shelby RT. they can drive it beat on it whatever if something happens to it, it won't be the end of the world. Then if they want to do another we can get a little more serious. They will learn a lot and as Dusk blue stated they will know a bit on how to keep it on the road, and any other vehicle for that matter.

Man you guys are depressing me here... Cry A couple of us have sons and or grandsons were doing our part to get tools in their hands or cars (hot wheels) on their brains. My daughters also play the car game of pointing out classics when were on the road, and luckily by the time I am deemed to old to drive my vehicles I can then have all of my "student" drivers who will be in their 30's or 40's take me around in my old cars, and hopefully some of their own classics. I figure I am just getting started on building a fleet for them to learn on, or learn from. I have no problems giving kids rides in my vehicles, but until all of mine are potty trained, I don't have a lot of extra time to bring a car to a car show.

They have finished their homework and are all playing right now, so I got enough time to type this out... Smiley

On their website it says you have to heat to 210 degrees, are you placing the container on the stove, and then dipping? what was your process and can you post a pic of your results Charley?
804  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 Engine Bay Pic's on: December 11, 2013, 10:57:24 PM
those are interesting pics did the passenger side ever come with screws? I noticed JohnZ has screws on his passenger side shields is why I ask. Maybe his got replaced at one point?
805  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: gray phosphate on: December 11, 2013, 10:47:38 PM
very informative link. It looks like the results can vary a bit, and it takes playing with it a bit to get the amount of sheen you want on your end product. Have you tried this little phosphate experiment yet Darrell?

here ya go
808  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Age Groups of Our Hobby on: December 11, 2013, 07:30:48 PM
well, if we are including future Classic car enthusiasts I have to throw my son into the mix. This pic was taken when he was 4, (he is now 6). He loves calling out old cars as we are driving down the road or at a car show, and has taken it to the next level and is able to point out the year of certain makes and models. (he knows the differences with the tri fives and how to tell them apart). I never had power wheels growing up, just a couple of hand me down pedal cars, so when the time came I got him a nice one off of ebay for cheap.. Cheesy.

interesting poll.

1slow64, what does your 19yr old drive to the cruise-ins?
810  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Mecum z28 on: December 11, 2013, 01:40:20 PM
when you say manual with a brake, I assume you are talking about a manual valve body, & transmission brake? sounds like fun. So if you get the 56 that will shut your dad up for a bit and you'll get redemption I hope... Cool
