Discouraged with your project car? A drive may be all you need
Toiling for untold hours in a dimly lit garage, oily tools in hand, can be deeply fulfilling. I've certainly experienced it. However, the work still saps my energy in a strange way. I liken it to a small drain on a battery in storage. To a point, that slow current flow is a good thing and keeps the battery healthy but, if left unchecked, even the tiniest draw can exhaust the battery's charge. Too much work, even on a car that's particularly meaningful to you, can leave you unable to summon the motivation to walk into the garage.
A drive in your project car might be the perfect pick-me-up.
You hit the nail right on the head, Kyle! I've had people talk to me about their vintage cars, telling me that they were going to effect a repair the cheapest and fastest way possible and, down-the-road, would do a comprehensive repair. My response always is: "How many times do you want to be broken down at the side of the road before you decide to do it right?" I always get that hang-head response and a very sheepish smile. They know that I am right. jay salser
