- I was thinking of posting this as a competition/challenge, but I don’t do well with deadlines; so instead, deposit your submission here, and I’ll get to it when I can. I would like to do a round by labor day weekend (Sep. 1-3), but besides that, I’ll try and keep things loose. That being said…
Kevin loved tinkering in his garage. So much so, that when his wife Beth divorced him, that’s all she left him. He even wound up selling many of his projects to pay his legal fees. The Mustang he worked on with his dad, his Beemer that all his friends envied, and even the truck his dad left him when he died.
Depressed, Kevin started leafing through the magazines he kept at his tool bench, he had been collecting since high school. Caught up in the nostalgia of his glory years, he felt the need to start a new project, but which one?
For this, submissions should be period correct, American cars, from the Malaise era (1973-1988), and have some ‘character’. In return, Kevin will reminisce, and share his thoughts on the vehicle. Since I’ve made this a review, rather than a challenge, there will be no winner, per se. There won’t be any particularly nasty commentary, but Kevin will not hesitate to call out BS for OP, min/max, or 3 fixture cars.
