Default PAYING IT FORWARD

I donate all my used parts to the local young guys just starting out on the hobby.
We all know how hard it is to get a good start in this when we were young.
this will keep our hobby alive and keep the kids off import rice etc.
plus karma has a way of a good pay off for helping someone in need.

Thats cool, I was given stuff when I was younger, and have given alot away. I always help others with their cars but I always end up getting shafted. No biggie, cuz it makes having the car done alone a little more special. But it is great to know that there are still some car guys out there like there was when I was a kid.

Please, anything to keep them away from them rice burners! Thats such great idea. Only wish I had something to donate. I'm kinda charity case myself.
Those little import lowriders with their one big exhaust pipe can be so annoying. I guess I shouldnt be so judgemental casue I know its just another form of hotrodding but to me its just not the same.
I can remember my first hotrod a original 260 V8 63 falcon futura.
I couldnt wait to save up enough money so I could get that 4 barrel Edelbrock intake, Holley 650 double pumper carb, Comp 268 high energy cam and of course headers. I had some purple horney header muffs that were loud as $hit and it would drive the wife and neighbors crazy. The rush I got from driving that thing around town and stop light racing anybody who dared me was what hotrodding was all about.

Hey Justin welcome to the zoo.

You will like it here and I for one am glad to see young people still into muscle cars and not all rice heads. :shock:

I see you have good taste in cars, and the guys here have enough knowledge to write a series of books.

Have fun with that 64 and post some pics in show off so we can see your progress on it. 8) 8) 8)
