I saw a comment from Tim Strange, who was the host of Search and Restore - he commented about all the people calling him and asking if he can build them a car - for Free! Several of his friends that have their own shops said they get those calls all the time. However, it does seem like most real car guys have an appreciation of what it takes (skill, time, and money) to do a car right. When I tell people I started my car 5 years ago, none of the real car guys think that's too long a time.
The Professor has my vote too Ray - apparently the Professor prefers woodies!
