In 1995 I had a 85 Ford Ranger in 31's and a 1970 Nova with a 355 that looked like just this one - Man I miss that car - I sold it in 1996 at $3000 for a down payment on my house. That was a huge mistake. I've wanted another Nova ever since! . . . . Some Day

I know what you mean. All my mom did was loan me the $500 down payment, the rest is my responsibility.

I mean I guess good for them, wish I had it. But I don't think it teaches them any appreciation for anything. I have a 9year old son, him and I are going to build his first ride(unless it turns out good, then I'm keeping it). I think thats better then just giving it to him.
