Amen I can't think of anything else I'd rather spend the money on as far as hobbies go. Can't take it with us, might as well enjoy it!

Its not hard to spend a lot of money on your ride. If you count up all the mods done on my truck I am pushing 18K not including the truck with probably another 15-20K in performance parts coming soon.

If anyone noticed the large group of HEMI Trucks running around Huntsville together last summer, you would have noticed several of that group with anywhere from 0-125K+ invested in them. 1 of the trucks was a 2 time display truck at SEMA 125K+ invested, another one has a fully customized interior to include 4 Viper seat interior alone was over 10K also has a fully built race motor in it, another has a fully built 426 HEMI w/ Turbo and Nitrous and fully built race transmission 30K just in engine/transmission build.

Not even ready to think about how much I am going to spend. I do know I have put enough money in them to keep the wheels turning. Can't wait to fix them up, but don't look forward to the cost.

One of the girls my daughter ran around with years ago (high school age) once said she used credit cards, because they were not real money. I tried that but it didn't work out.

Yeah, I finally figured that out. I should have asked the girl's dad to issue me a card. I don't think my dad ever had one.

Way too much and counting. Over the top amount on this poll. On our 12th restoration/rebuild, a 1961 Ford F100 unibody. But on the good side, we have sold many and are ahead.
