I'm 39 years old, when I drive around town in a V8 Ford I get lots of waves and compliments, some from teenage folks. Two weeks ago I got a young lady to shout out "I like your car!" while she was driving by at a stop sign. They do have classy looks.

Taking a ride with the bride on the back roads of southwest NH to see the foliage, eat a great meal and enjoy the sound of the flathead going through the gears.....and getting excited about installing the newly arrived Mitchell.

Learning that others think you’ve done a good job restoring your car.

Greg says those 12 words for all of us. I love the months and months alone in the garage with my country music and my bottle of beer after work, but there's something about a fellow 'car guy' recognizing what it took.
