So my 15 year old son is going to be driving soon. He and I pooled $400 together and bought a Squareback on December 10th. I figured we'd build his first car together. I took the week off between Christmas and New Year and we worked like mad dogs on this thing.

Here's what we started with:



Here's where we're at a month later:



I bought him a set of ICT's for Christmas and installed them, too. The engine actually runs pretty well, surprisingly enough!

Not bad for a first car!

We're building this on a very limited budget, but we'll see where it leads us. I just brought home 60 feet of 1-1/2" tubing tonight so I guess the next step is to start building a cage. We'll see what happens in the next few months.... I'll post some more pictures from time to time.

So cool! I like the working on the car part even better than the car itself.

My nephew is now helping me out in the garage.
Great kid. He doesn't know it but if he does his 'job' right I will give him a bug on his 18th birthday (we start driving at 18 here).
I am his godfather.
