Oh yeah, right before we started she informed me that I was going to have to pay her(now she's learning). I couldn't argue so decided to negotiate instead. Started at $5. Somewhere around $11.50 she said "we're talking about a WHOLE engine here dad." So we finally agreed to settle on $15.00. Then I asked her how much an engine builder would charge. "$20 or $30 bucks" she said. I'll wait until she's finished to correct that figure...
More to come

Yeah I don't know how I became so mechanically inclined but I don't think I got it from MY parents.

When I was like four or five, I had to bring it to my mom's attention that she was driving with the parking brake on in my dad's old ford.
I have no idea how many times over the years I've told my dad about problems with our four-wheelers, cars, boats, snowmachines and such and explained with pretty good accuracy just what was wrong and what to do about it, only to be told that "it's fine". Lo and behold, it would break down 40 miles from the highway the next month.

thats how i learned, my grandpa, he tought me how to dientify olf muscle cars and classics while driving around town and such, had me rebuild a 318 for his van at 10years old, my dad never shared intrest in what i did and still do.
but anyways, sounds like your gettin a good deal from a pro engine builder

I didn't get started on mechanical stuff until I was 14.....................
It's good to get started early..............Maybe a good excuse to get more Sube's?

Btw, my first car was a 68 Firebird, black with white interior and slotted mags. The car was only 8yrs old when I got it. Alot of you werent even around yet:eek:
I have my 12yr boy help me sometimes, mostly manning the jack. But he asks lots of questions, and its fun. Just wish his attention span was longer.
