An obsession. It can take alot of time, and money, i've helped a few friends out on occasion, and I just now bought a '72 charger to restore. I work on it after work almost every day, I think about it constantly, I dream of it being finished when I sleep at night. It can be incredibly frustrating, I just keep a mental image of the car and of what I want it will look like, sound like, drive like when its all done, and it doesn't take me long to get over it and get my ass back to work.
After its all over, what could possibly be more satisfying than cruiseing down the strip in a beautiful classic, and know that you made that thing run.
The car, I bought from a widow, a '72 RallyE Charger w/ a 426. Needs very minor body work, and a new paint job. Cost me 1200 Canadian, about 5 bucks american
. Engine rebuild the works, I;m going to enjoy it.
