I like the sounds of a scratch and dent section, sounds like my kind of place, probably waaaaaay funner and waaaaaaay more beer!!!!
Plaer, you sound like my kind of guy. I started my car along time ago with wild dreams of how it would be, soon found out it takes a lot of money these days to do these cars, like all the pretty shinny ones around. I had to stop and regroup and just be satisfied with building a safe driver. In the beginning I used to go to some of the local car shows, got very discouraged, because there was no way I had the money to compete with these guys with bottom less pockets of money. But i'm proud of what I have accomplished with my car, at least I can say I have done all the work to my car, wish I could do a lot more to the car, but there are priorities. Just try and figure out what level of build you can do. And be happy with it.
I guess im not tired of it, just my baby steps forward aren't steps, they are shuffled. I guess I shouldn't complain, hopefully my next big push is the 454 and trans in for good, but I have to roll the ads and of my car out of the garage 4 ft just to work on it, so I can't just put it up on jack stands, yada yada yada. It's just frustrating, I miss the days of working in a shop and had access to a hoist on the weekends. I guess I'm in a better spot than the people that have multi decade non running projects, but, my needs to get mine basically running and driving are so small, but every aspect takes so much work. Argh.
This I understand.....worked about 5 years on our 72 Vette and we got tired and frustrated often .....
