Yepppers, that kid was me 30 years ago. I bought my first car (1960's something Dodge Dart with a 318 and three on the tree) when I was 14 "to learn how to drive it around the 40", didn't take long to figure out the best ways and times to cruise into town without getting caught. You know what they used to call kids like me back then, trouble. Because we were. We didn't do what normal kids did. We did what we wanted to, or could afford to. I think lots of entreprenuers and "trade school types" were rebels growing up. At least most of the kids I hung out with in shop class were. Man, those were some good times! I feel sorry for kids nowadays that don't get to experience that!
