    His love for car's started early with HotWheels and Lego stuff. When they start with the career crap (pushing college) in high school, all he ever said he wanted to do was work on cars. Encouraged him to follow his dream. He picked up love for Mopars by contact I suppose, but I never forced it on him. It's his journey, not mine. But he's doing really well in his second semester in school and just got a job at a local Dodge dealership yesterday. He was so excited he could hardly tell me on the phone, lol. I'm feeling very grateful today on his 20th birthday.

        Excellent! It's encouraging that some young people appreciate and value hard work. You should be proud of your son! Young people learn by example, obviously you've set a good one! 65'

                    Thanks man. He is good with the computer stuff. Knows his way around a Holley now, too. So he's getting both sides.

                    My wife has an aunt and uncle on Lake Marion. I'd love to fish Sparkleberry again. Good times.

                      I like many others have various hobbies, from American Muscle Cars to farming. I can't do only one thing, life is too short! 65'
