I got my wife to go along with my current project by selling her on the idea that I could get the car on the road as a daily driver for around $1,800. My plans were based on a good friend who owned a welding shop to do the hard stuff. Of course, things never actually pan out as foreseen and somewhere in the mix: we moved, twice; parts I had planned to use "as is" were worn out more than I thought; I got hooked on eBay and bought everything that I could find to buy at a killer price (you used to find alot better deals there than you can now); and had no idea how to build a car from scratch myself.

So today, my daily driver custom '53 Plymouth is still in the garage with a second exhaust system being put on (by me) and tranny leak needing to be fixed. So far I have $5000 in it and my wife is... uh, unhappy!?!

I have had tons of fun, learned even more, and after the above mentioned tasks are completed, I will have a daily driver, maybe. I have driven it about 2000 miles total, but that doesn't seem to satisfy my wife. <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" />
