    Hello, new to this site. Wanted to know if any of you out there are car builders ? I'm currently building a 59 Chevy Stepside from the ground up. Try to stay on topic as much as "possible".

    Wouldn't it be easier to write a check for an already built one?

    It would be. But would it be built the way you want it. Knowing everything was done correctly. Self gratification of doing it yourself.

    Yes 65 mustang. Was my moms first car.

    I think I started a thread on it.

    Nope.

    I find it much easier to go online and build my own car from a manufacturer website.

    During the second trimester.

    It will sit there until their daughter heads off to college.

    I've had this truck for 3 years. Ripped it all apart the first 6 months. After that it just sat collecting dust. I've been steadily getting back into the garage and working on it. It requires a lot of time. With our line of work and an family it's hard to justify time spent in the garage. Can you post some pics ?

    I'm replacing sheet metal now. We moved and it's buried under boxes in a 1 car garage right nor.

    My 11 year old likes to be out there with me. He is getting interested in cars. Except when I'm grinding away. Painted my frame yesterday, my son asked if I could paint his Go-Kart as well. Lol

  20. Probably any car after 1970 isn't truly an American car.
