It gives the boy something to do that doesn't involve a video game. He was rather amazed at how the internal parts all connected with each other. Hopefully that will grow into something. The daughter wants to be an engineer, so maybe her third grade engine building experience, years ago, helped spur the interest.

I have all the original paperwork on the car, even the broadcast sheet that was under the rear seat. It was a leftover sitting on the lot at the end of the model year, when they bought it. Ruckles also had a leftover Trans Am but Gramma Rose didn't like the &quot;bump in the hood.&quot; (She was kind of short and it blocked her view of the road). [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img]
