With the extreme push for young people to attend college, we are not far from an extreme shortage of skilled craftsmen soon. The same thing has already happened in Europe, and now the tables are turning. Skilled labor is in such demand that they make more than college grads, and are really looked up to.

496CHEVY3100 Well he is getting started young like you ,mabe he will like it enough to stay with it. Most people who work on their own cars take better care of them .

496CHEVY3100 Father and son projects are unfogetable even if it is something simple ,I remember handing my father tools when I was to short to see over the fenders ,but I learned to tell the sizes without reading them and also fractions and a fond memory I will never forget ,he had a Black 55 Belair hardtop with a 62 model 327 and 2x4s he let me turn on the shut off valve for the front carb before a street race,Yea a street race I had to stand on the bunper to reach it ,I will be 63 in a couple weeks but I remember that,

Heard a song about Father and Son,that would fit here ,but it is not about a car so I wont play it ,

I know all to well you can not make your kids decisions for them but it is really good he is finding something that is holding his interest. Also, Something that you have in common to talk about.

Good luck and be advised. We will willingly watch a Sunbeam come together. The truck will get done in due time.

1971BB427 Today is the official end of the Wed. night cruise and drags at Beaches. I'm guessing the turnout will be as it usually is on the last night, about 1500 cars. Weather is a bit cool at high 60's, but that allows the cars that run hot to come out without worry. Spent the morning cleaning up one of my cars to drive out, and we'll probably stay late to enjoy the last one this year!

Brian, I'm on board with you! After spending half of the summer doing the kitchen, and one bedroom, I still have to finish the dining room soon! My wife gave us both a break, so we could enjoy some summer, but I'll be back at it soon with fall arrival.

Maybe we could talk him into posting some pictures if he goes to work on it.

Some of us are not as good as Brian about doing the things that need to be done verses the things we like to do......Myself in particular.

Thanks for the tip, I hope it looks good in that regard I spent a bunch of time with cardboard templates. And in fact WAY too much time and even cut out plywood nailed it up then ripped it out and threw it away because it wasn't to my liking. I did end up with something that is pretty nice as I was very anal about it the second time around.
