did you tell him your going to buried in it???
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.
