Saw my first hotrod magazines at about 14, (still have boxes of them) was hooked, started hanging out at the local body shop. I was free labor to sand, wash, cleanup, or what ever there was to do. Did a custom paint job on my bicycle, then every bike in town for $5.00 bucks. Worked out my first car from them ($50.00).
A 50 Plymouth 2 dr. put in 49 Lincoln taillights. filled all the seams,
shaved the hood, Frenched the headlights, louvered the hood, shaved the doors and installed solenoids, spray tinted the glass,
frenched the lic. plate mt. in the deck lid, found some ripple bumpers, ditched the 6 cyl. and installed a hemi, and a cad. lasalle floor shift, full moon hub caps, lowered it as far as it would go, complete tuck and roll interior myself with moms help, did a wild paint job and the local mothers would not let there daughters ride in it. I was 15, that was 50 years ago, and I've never looked back.
If you don't make mistakes. your not doing anything.
