My son is trying to spend more of his inheritance (my money).
A few weeks ago he talked me into getting a pickup truck.
This time he is looking at a trailer for the T.
Will it ever stop??
I will keep you posted.
You know that it will never stop as long as you fund it !
Life is short...enjoy his enthusiasm!
(Yes, I need to listen to that re: my son, too!)
Fred, do you only have one T.?? You do know they multiply I can see a bigger shop, sheds, more tools, enjoy the time you get to spend on the cars with your son.... and have fun
Donnie you forgot they will need a paint booth and a place to store the frames while the bodies are being painted. And lest we forget they will need a fridge for the refreshments!
The trouble with teenagers, and some adults, today is that anything you give them, they think it is worth exactly what it cost them and they treat it accordingly.
Any time I'm gonna blow some money on something I ask myself...self, 50 years from now who's going to give a sh&t?
Any time I'm gonna blow some money I ask myself... self, who's gonna give sh&t right now?
Forget the 50 years.
Yeah, you're right Aaron.
Many moons ago when I started saying that 50 yrs made sense. Not now.
Now I don't plan more than one day ahead.
Yeah Bob, here lately, we've even discussed discontinuing our normal practice of buying green bananas!
Donnie. We only have one T but a 31 town Sedan snuck into the garage when I was not looking.
My wife insists that it is her car.
Jim. My son is beyond a teen. Every time he comes up with a new idea I remind him that he is spending his money and that in a few years he will have to clean up the mess. It doesn't make any difference. He wants to work - play - with his dad.
I am with Bob. Tomorrow seems like a long time in the future
Fred, considering all the stuff kids find to spend your hard earned cash on like: smart phones, electronics that are obsolete shortly after they are purchased, spring break vacations, and other illicit activities,I don't think I would complain about investing in Model T stuff. At least you have something to show for your money after it's spent.
The best advice that I ever received was from Dr Frederick Cunliffe, a forensic pathologist. He said "Enjoy yourself, you rarely see a U-Haul trailer behind a hearse".
My dad has worked very hard his whole life.I have always told him if he dies with a dollar in his pocket it is his own fault. I only intervene when I feel like he getting screwed or could get more for his money.
He bought a Harley last year and I worked on it for him a good bit to get it right. Before he bought it he ask me if I minded. I said "he-- no,it is your money." He just drove it breakfast this morning and he is 81 years old
I must admit when he went to the motorcycle show this year I told him if he bought another 1 to get it in peach baskets to save me some time fixen it!
Play while ye can!
"Now I don't plan more than one day ahead."
At my age I don't even buy green bananas!
Fred, You are lucky he is bent toward a good wholesome hobby. Many younger ones get hooked on drugs and cause you nothing but misery. Give in. It's a hobby you both enjoy; why not buy a giant trailer to put the fleet of T's in. It's only money you can not spend when you croak!
