What's it all about? This is a question I get all the time. People who do not have, or understand, the allure of a hot rod have asked. "They polish and pamper their cars". Well their not "JUST CARS". Their priceless memories. It's not the money, that they spent, its not the kind of car, it is "THE CAR". It's not anything but Memories. Whether it is new memory being made or a old one that was once forgotten. I have attended car shows for over thirty years, the one thing I have found is everyone comes with and leaves with more memories. What? OK, let me explain.
You pass a car on the highway. You have passed one just like it when you were five. Flash back. Get it now? These "CARS" are these people's life history on wheels. It was grandpa's truck, Mom's first car, see what I am saying? You are starting to understand. This inanimate abject is as precious as gold, sometimes even more so. That is what I LOVE the most. What other job can you have that will save a memories, that will only bring more.
Want to spend more time with your son, when he needs you the most? Rebuild grandpa's truck in your garage together. Then spend a couple of Saturdays with your son at the local car show, showing off what you did together. How much do you think that truck will mean to him when you are gone? GET IT? PS> Hugs are Free, Pass them out! Charley.....
