My wife and I were drooling over a 70 nova that a friend's brother had bought off the Barrett Jackson auction and my 15 year old daughter saw it and said "I'd want something newer"  ::).  I think I need to educate her a little better.

The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

i guess thats right my nephew borrowed dads 46 ford with the suicide doors to go to his senior prom last saturday night  :o :D he also has a 29 ford model a and a 41 plymouth deluxe but we havent got to work on the plymouth much yet
all i have right now is a 56 chevy truck i will try to fix after i get my daughters car car figured out :)
mom and dad,1 of my uncles,and me and my 2 brothers founded the sardis farm and home show 20 or so years back so the kids have always been around old tractors,cars and trucks :)
 on a side note most of you probably read i lost my mom last week and her funeral was on saturday and so was the spring tractor show so her last ride went directly in front of the show grounds :) not planned it was just on the way to grave yard  :) and the tractor club had a ribbon put on the flowers that said founding member which i thought was nice :)  the thing is i never noticed the ribbon or thought about us driving through the show grounds  until monday afternoon when i went to the grave yard to visit :o ::)
 
back to the cars
 sandhills  i always liked the nova & chevy II  but good luck on changing her mind maybe take her to a cruise in or something where she can see several different ones and she will likely see something she likes :)
i will try to get some pics of dads old cars and put on here

My daughters first vehicle to drive was a 1 ton dually flat bed.
She ran over or banged into almost everything in the yard with it until she figured out how to drive it.
I figured she couldn't be any more safer than in that truck.
She started driving it around the farm at 12 years old.
Once she stopped hitting things she could take it on the roads.
That was the deal.
Lol.

 :D :D :D my girls started driving young 5-6 years old and have to master a manual trans before they get their learners permit  ;D :D :D :D and i still worry about letting them go by themselves ::) i think over all the bug will be a safer for car than the chevelle she wanted  :) i know it wont hold up in a crash as well as the chevelle but i think the 47 hp engine will offset the 396ss and be safer overall  ;)  after all a guy was killed last week in a 3 axle gravel  truck and the woman and child he hit were seriously injured but will both be ok they were in a early 90s model chevy 1/2 ton pickup ??? go figure ??? you just never know in a wreck what will happen :-\ this happened about 4 miles from my house at an intersection i pass through several times a day :( we are trying to get the state to make it a 4 way stop but who knows ???     anyway at least with the bug i know speed will not likely be a factor :D

When we were younger We had a bug as a beater car we drove around thru the woods and sand pits.
That poor thing was banged into all kinds of trees and rocks.
We never got hurt. Thing would never get stuck either.
They are pretty safe little cars for the most part.
It's a nice little car for her.
Now you can find a chevelle for yourself.  :D

I always liked Bugs but never had one.

A friend once told me you really don't know how much you appreciate AC until you have been stuck in traffic in Manila with 5 people in a bug at 98.

i have never had a bug before either but i like the way it kooks :)  if the bug works out ok i will likely put ac on it they have some under dash mount units now that are supposed to only rob 1.2-1.5 hp for the compressor  :) everything including all brackets belts comp complete for $1495.00 not cheap but still a bargain for ac in late july and august down here :D

my biggest concern right now is do i have to learn german to swear at it or will it understand english good enough ??? ???
