I had been doing just fine handling my rebuild by myself, I guess my son's were jealous of that fact. Now that it's time to get my stang running, they all want to help. So far the help has cost me a few hundred dollars in broken or damaged. parts. Wish I could have or would have just said NO to them, that would have hurt some feelings. And of course they know everything. I laughed when my son told me I didn't know anything about the new technology on cars today, and responded to him who cares this car doesn't have any... lol just frustration talking away now...So close to firing up

My son helped me on my 73 vert some over the last five years, but not with the same interest I had. He doesn't mind driving now that it is almost finished. I do agree, the time he did help was a great father/son experience.

My son was upset when I didn't let the machine shop engine build set it up for 500+HP. He's going to be mad if I can beat him at the track. He won't let me help him with his LT1 Impala SS.

Hey Alan -

Vent away, my friend. You'll be on the road before you know it. Can't wait to see how it does at the track!

Maybe thats why he's "helping" you? Angel
