20 years later,

http://https://www.chevelles.com/foru...1&d=1511833588Iíve owned my 67 Chevelle since 1989 and spent a good amount of money trying to make it a car I would have driven in high school if I could have afforded a new 67 back then. My son was a senior in high school in 1997 and in a moment of weakness I allowed him to drive it even though it wasnít completely finished. Long story shortened, he took an excursion down a ditch a few miles from home. No frame damage but a lot of bent sheet metal. The car hasnít moved from itís spot in the garage for 20 years.

Iíll be 65 next month so I decided itís time. Iím hoping I have enough drive left in me to finally finish and drive a car I always wanted. Going to start from scratch and do all the upgrades I want and can afford.

Just picked up the new heart of my project,

Phone pics, I presume?

Turn the phone 180* when taking pics, or fix them in a photo program before posting.

I click on your picture, right click, save them to my pc, reopen them in paint, (or wherever you want) where you can rotate, save and repost...

Re: 20 years later,

I'm guessing he's still grounded 20 years later, I think I would have ran away and joined the traveling circus

Well,,,,, I had a point of reference for this situation and maybe a little karma too. When I was 16 my Dad bought his first new car, a 1969 Dodge Charger with a 383. It was a wonderful car and Dad let me drive it around with him while I still had my learners permit. Valentines Day 1970 on a snowy night that I should have been home, I was out with my high school sweetheart and I spun out taking her home. Their was not one straight panel left on that car but I was still able to drive it home. Worst night of of life up to that point. Dad never went ballistic and we never talked about it again. He knew I was heartbroken that I had disappointed him which was true. I was a pretty good kid growing up and I suppose he was happy no one was hurt.

Biggest difference for my son is that his mistake has sat in the garage the past 20 years for him to see whenever he comes home. Did I mention I only had liability insurance on the car?

Re: 20 years later,

Well I guess he learned something from that and hope and understands the damage was more than the car "your heart" and is willing to help repair the damage now that he's an adult, hopefully he is going to help, with my dad it wouldn't have been a choice, best of luck, rick.

Re: 20 years later,

I just re-read this, he wrecked your chevelle 20 years ago and hasn't made it right YET!, that is just wrong he is a grown man now or what? he should man up and fix the wrong, just my very honest opinion and I also have 4 kids & 5 Gkids, rick

His day is coming, 2 years ago he was blessed with twins! Twin boys! Now they were born premature and had to spend 3 months in the neonatal unit of the hospital. After they came home my wife and I have become their full time care providers while Mom and Dad are at work. So I have a pretty good handle on their personalities. They are walking now and they know no fear and while they hear No No No all day long, they still havenít grasped the meaning. Iím thinking in another 14 years, he will have his hands full.
