Kit Car

Hey guys
I am looking into a kit kar to build with my brother and my father. My father and I are pretty firmiliar with cars, deeper than the basics but no pros. We are looking into a decent kit car, moderate price and what not. I was wondering if you guys have any experience with them and what kit yo would suggest. Also, do you think a 16 year old kid like me and my father would be able to pull this off?
Thanks for the Help

There are lots of kits out there. All depends on your tastes. As far as being able to pull it off.......well------if you have 3 things you can

1) small amount of mechanical ability and a lot of spare time
2) A good place to work with enough room and basic hand tools
3) enough money to bring you from begining to end

All of these are relative to the size of the project you take on.....

You are off to a good start research----- you can never ask enough questions. And remember no matter what have FUN
