Default Future V-8er??

I have to brag as recently my daughter (4 years old) has begged everyday to help me at work (early Ford parts business) where she rides her bike around the shop while I pull parts to ship off and places them in her basket of her bike and asks questions about every part. She also begs to help with the cars at home. She has claimed my 33 as her own, and has been helping me sand a 36 pickup that we are going to restore together. Iím 33 years old and experiences like this is what got me into this hobby head over heals. For those of you that worry about the future of the hobby and future home of you cars, get your kids and grandkids involved! Tasks take me 10x longer with her around but itís totally worth it!

She's a real cutie. However, with her in the first pic I hope her name isnt "Bonnie"!

You're a lucky man to have your daughter show such interest and at such a young age. That said, I'd hate to be in your shop in an earthquake but then again you're not in SoCal.

my two boys helped with all my 40 Fords, and I loved it just like you, but both went to the dark side being mostly interested in brand "C". Even my grandson is into brand "C". I still have hope for one of them to get interested in flatheads, guess my old flatties will get c transplants when I am gone

Charlotte likes the cars, no doubt, but most of all hanging out with Super-Dad, Michael.

Being a parent is another full time job, but the rewards for that job are immeasurable. Those times with dad or mom will never be forgotten. Good for you Michael.
