Influence your kids and the younger generation!

It is ok to share your passion about the cars you love and your personal history with those cars. Those stories will be remembered. Without the stories, it is hard for the kids nowadays to see why we are so passionate about cars.
 
For example, when I was a kid, my mom drove a 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. It was a green 2-door, with a white vinyl top. It was a huge car. My mom being 4’11” tall only added to the size of the car.  This car was awesome. It had a Rocket 350 engine with a 4-barrel, quadra-jet carburetor. With a full size bench seat in the front, I use to sit in the middle and shift gears from 1st to 2nd and then into drive whenever we went anywhere. If we were ever next to a car at a light that I thought we should hole shot when the light turned green, I also could talk my mom into flooring it on occasion.

These memories will be with me forever.
 
To this day, when I see a ‘73 Oldsmobile Delta 88, I immediately go back to that time in my life and think about my mom, who is no longer with us. I absolutely love those cars. So much so that I will probably own one eventually.
 
Your kids should know about these memories, and you should be creating new “car” memories for them. Get out and enjoy your old cars, and bring the family into the mix. They don’t know it now, but they will have those memories for the rest of their lives!
