Not only that but it can be done to a level of quality that creates pride of ownership as well as having market value. There is a big difference in spending your money and in investing it in a project.

Do I think I can make a nice car out of this thing. Hell yes. Do I think it will ever win best of show. Not a chance. Will I enjoy the car? I already am.

John, don't think about that for a second. Anyone who looks at this thread and sees "grandstanding" or something like that has a problem themselves, YOU are a gentleman and no one with the common sense God gave them could say anything different.

I love this thread!
