Building Your ‘Baby’

Building your ‘Baby’: So you finally got that project car you have always wanted. Maybe you found it at a classic car auction, or maybe you just happened to spot it with a big “For Sale” sign in the windshield, and maybe it is a family heirloom of sorts, passed down for generations, each one putting its own personality into different aspects of the car. What now? You may have a great vision of what the car could end up looking like, and maybe you know the steps to get there, but what about the right person to ask when something unexpected comes up? I think we all know the feeling of beginning a classic car restoration, or just about any small household project, and believing we have all the right tools until mid-fix, we realize it’s time for a run to the department store or local car garage…some of us even have a story or two about realizing that just as a mysterious fluid is leaking onto the freshly power-washed garage floor.
