We keep lamenting the loss of youth in the club, but we seldom think of ways to get a project in to their hands. Part them out? Or give them to a Vo-Tech and take a tax deduction?

My senior year of high school I had the Vo-Tech class rebuild the engine in a 1949 2R5 I owned. I was playing soccer, had a part time job and was working on the school newspaper at the time. In addition, I was rebuilding the engine on my Dad's 1955 Chevy truck. It took them most of the year and about $300, but they got the job done. I ended up with 4 more engines that the late Sam Miller supplied in an effort to get a good camshaft (which I still have). I kept the truck for about 6 years and sold it after I got out of college.
