    You are living my dream. I wish I could own and rebuilt that many cars. I hope one day I can say I have rebuilt and owned many cars. That's awesome what you have at such a young age. Truly amazing.

    The legend cars are fun as long as you run with a clean group of drivers. I parked mine last season... 14/15 year old kids with 2 spare cars getting towed around in 300,000 rig. Just can't compete with that type of money and they smash cars on the weekly basis.


    As for living the dream its good and bad. Everyone calls you spoiled, or daddy gives you that stuff, friends take advantage of you for your shop and knowledge and I didn't spend like anytime out of the shop.... I skipped my senior trip in high school to buy a 4340 eagle crank and h beams rods for the motor in my vega. But thanks for the comments. Just put your mind to it and anything is possible

    Well said! I always get crud for having a $2500 dollar mountian bike, but some people don't understand that I was practically my dads slave for two years before he bought it for me. Some kids just don't get the value of hard work. On my 16th birthday I was doing paperwork for my first real job and the day after I was working every weekend from that point on and I am saving every penny. Now I just need to get a summer job to continue to save for a car that will get a small dent put in the price by my dad.

    Yeah there's not many young people any more that know hard work. I've been working since I was 14. I've helped create a company and build it strong. I'm turning 18 soon and hope to get a 240sx and heavily modify it. It will hopefully keep it for a while then when I start making more money ill start buying more cars and building cars.

    Y'all have some nice restored projects! I am liking that Vega!
    Me only being 17---
    Money is just a thing, I didn't grow up with a bunch of it. if you work hard enough you may still not get what you think. You could end up a bum after being a VP or working for NASA. I was taught from day one:
    1. Family
    2. Friends
    3. Property (includes toys)
    There is always room for more numbers but abide by the rules of society and getting a high payin job isn't all that. You could have a golden toilet but chances are less love will be near.
    Back to cars: forgot to post a pic of Momma's M3... Will try tomorrow (reminder set), been super busy!

    That might be cool. I think he is planning on getting another 240 sometime in the future and he's gonna put it in that.

    I had built and sold this.. I was too big to drive it int comfortably.

    1974 DATSUN, built small block, stall converter, custom headers, ford 9inch, fiberglass tilt nose, wide body bed, datsun cut in the tailgate for brake like.... was a super fun truck[IMG][/IMG]

    built this for a friend of mine, 70 chevelle. 402 big block, munci 4 speed, 12 bolt rear.. he ended up selling it
    [IMG][/IMG]

    My dads cuda that I've had a bunch of time in


    And another cuda, 73 340 4 speed. Dad owned it since the early 80's. I did new rear frame rails, trunk floor, 1/4 panel, fiberglass fenders/hood/bumpers, sub frame connected... this is an old picture. Project is not done yet and got put on the back burner for the last two years, here is an old picture of it.

    Once again. Unbelievable. Living the dream. That's awesome that you've done so many projects and builds. I don't usually like power trucks but that Datsun looks nice. Very nice job looks like an awesome truck.

    Its a 72 actually with 70 340/6 aar drivetrain. The 73 I'm doing will look a lot closer to a real aar, I have the aar hood for it, front/rear spoilers.. will be painted hemi orange with the textered black hood/top of fenders.

    And again thanks bash'n'slash. After you do a few cars it is like 2nd nature especially older cars. I had a very good teacher growing up showing me everything. The new cars I have to work on everyday in the shop are nightmares. Made so cheap, computers, emissions, plastic everywhere, one inch of room to get parts off..

    Absolutely GREAT job on both Cuda's, if I get time I will snap a picture of my neighbors... I am not sure he has it anymore because I haven't seen it in a while.... Hope he still has it!
    Loving the Chevelle too! I've always dreamed of owning 69-70 Chevelle, Candy red, pearl white stripes with a pearl white top!
    Interesting Datsun truck! I am digging it!
    Let's keep up the pics here! Living the old 65-75 body styles on American Muscle!
    Anyone have an old Charger?

    Thanks. I used to hate hondas too but I've had around
    10 of them now. I still have a 94' chevy s10 waiting on a v8 but the civic is alot cheaper to drive.

    Wow. A s10 with a v8 would be a monster. That would be cool if you get that together.

    Not much stock about it. It looks pretty tame, but has over 700 hp and runs 9's

    That's insane. Any car that can run under 10 is a well built car. Do you actually drive the car? Like on the strip.
