Thank you for saying this. Every time I hear someone say they bought their last car for $500 and it runs great, I think about the number of cars I've sold for scrap because they were no longer running and was paid $500 for them.

I know this story isn't about the kind of repair work you do, since this is a full restoration, I love reading this message board for the comments and updates. One of the things that struck me was the number of people lamenting that their kids weren't interested in cars, and only wanted to play video games.

People with your skills are becoming fewer and fewer every year. Even the mechanics with real understanding of cars seem to be in fewer numbers. But this young woman is really remarkable.
