 You have a few years to get ready, and you might have her start saving for the gas bill ;D

My Brother In Law found him this car sitting in a field with the top off.  The body was Rust free except the back passenger floor board had a small patch needed.  The body was severely dinged like it had been punched every 12 inches on every panel but still solid.  My other brother is a very good body man and fixed her all up.  That was 30 years ago.  He paid 400 dollars for the car.

Yup real good taste !!! ;D I had one back in 71 the guy who bought it new was killed in "Nam" and a friend of mine bought it from his parents,i got it from him about 6 months later. It was one with the L78 motor 375 H.P. 396 ,only car around to keep up with it was a Plymouth GTX with a 425H.P. hemi. I wish i still had that rig but in 1973 i traded it in on a new 1973 Chevy 4x4 pickup,i was working on the Interstate construction as a grade foreman and needed a pickup !! :'( :'(

I sense the art of negotiation here she really wants a 5 yr old Civic.

Very good taste, but one thing I've learned is I would buy her something much cheaper and safer (slower) for her first car, let her get the wrecks out of the way, then let her get the hot rod  :D.

  A few years ago one of my coworkers said his 15 yr old daughter saw a Mustang that already had her name on it (Shelby) so that's what she wants, he said we might change your name first  :D, she got a Camry but didn't change her name.

Start with Hot Wheels. . Then a plastic model. . .  and I am sure you can find a Die Cast

well update on the dream car of my daughter ;D we havent been able to find a chevelle that i could afford but  :-\  we went and looked at early 40s ford yesterday with the flat head v8 with a 6pack carb setup primer grey with no side panels  and a flat custom hood so engine shows and looks nice and her exact words were " i'd drive it but i dont know im pretty sweet on that '54 2 door chevy  over at savannah. i just like the old turtle shell cars better" (thats what she calls all the old cars with that shape) :D :D :D
i have 2 questions     
1 do any of you guys have this problem with your daughters ???
2 why does a 14 yo girl even know this stuff to ask for it ??? :D :D :D
