stuff like that. also my uncle tim can do body work and paint and stuff. my uncle Gary knows everything and owned a shop i think i might call him tommrow and talk to him about it. i know he could help and so could my uncle tim.
they are getting older so it would be nice if i could do stuff with them fixing a car up would be one of those things. i want to keep it very original. i dont care for stripes on cars. i dont know what else to say just ask me questions and give me pics of cars and prices and what u think i should do.
get a old muscle car, like a mustang, a camaro, ratrod, what are you into? like chevy? ford? theres a whole buncha classics out there that can be mad to rumble a ricers head...im surprised a 15 yr old wants american muscle and not some import...props to you :thumbs:
Like was said above, its nice to see the younger folks are still interested in muscle cars. They are getting expensive to find and restore but with a little patience you should be able to find something. The nice thing about muscle cars these days is most parts are a lot easier to find then they were 25 years ago. Anybody can put a big muffler and decals on a Honda or Toyota :ohcrap: but to restore a true muscle car is the way to go. Its not for everybody due to the cost but its worth it if you can. Good Luck. :thumbs:
yeah fc7 said, great to see a kid interested that sounds like he can afford it, that or he will be greatly disappointed when he finds out he can't. I know if I could afford muscle I would certainly have gone that route as I love the older vehicles of the days when making a car was something special and we didn't just glue a bunch of plastic together (ok I am exaggerating but you get my point) Congratulations w00t if you are able to get something nice. Also keep us updated I'm excited to see what ya go with.
