My Love for My Kids and their Cars

Post by 2manypetz on Thu Jan 19, 2012 6:02 pm

Hello I am new here...I am a MOM of 2 teenage daughters that have cool cars! My older daughter that is 18 bought a 1977 el camino when she was 14 from money she earned walking dogs at the local vet clinic. My youngest has a 1977 firebird, that we are currently restoring to a TA, she sold her horse to buy it for her own 16th birthday. The el camino needs worked on, but she really likes to drive it, so hoping that after we finish the Firebird project we can start on that, maybe if the winter gets bad enough we can get it into the garage and at least get the floor pans replaced. We have absolutely no idea what we are doing! But we are having fun as a family and learning something new, and the girls will have neat cars to treasure and do with what they want as they grow up. As I find time i will try and get some pics loaded up. Will be looking for parts too..so if you have any 77 el co stuff around let me know...oh and we are located in iowa.



here is daughter with el camino at her first car show when she was 15

Welcome,

I enjoyed reading your intoduction, I grew up in a tough neighbourhood and getting into old cars when I was a teenager steered me in the right direction big time.
There is lots of nice people here and if you are looking for advice on helping your daughters fix up thier cars this is the place to ask.
