Default Good story of gearheads. Fiero content.

I saw this on a rat rod rules. Kind of sad but a good story of a bunch of great people.

Awesome. Just awesome.

We are a community.

I had a conversation earlier about the bond between car guys and machines. At the end of the day a car is as-much an appliance as your toaster oven. But unlike the toaster it moves, breathes, changes, reacts, its nearly an animate object.... I think that's why we get attached. Even when it fails, we know why it fails and we can fix it another time, when it runs awesome we know its a result of our labor.... There's a serious bond there, this guy has it with fieros and I only hope we'd do the same for someone here with a ACVW.

I know, what we have done and it truth it was more practical than building a car, but still an incredible deed.
