My sons worked on cars together, both with me, and with their grandpa. That hands on wrenching - replacing the clutch on an '86 Corolla, fixing the inline six on a '64 Chevy truck, putting a rebuilt generator in a '68 Galaxie - is what bonded my sons with vehicles. Of course, it meant that *I* had to spend hundreds of hours, helping them in the high school auto shop, or driving to the parts store, or hanging out at my father in law's shop - but it was fun. All of them had their own cars, and though none of those cars were exotic, they were all easy to work on, easy to drive, and easily attainable. Nowadays, my boys are all 28 to 38 years old. They mostly drive trucks, cos trucks are the "new sports car" of the 21st century. One has a Raptor. Another is putting an LS motor into the afforementioned '64 Chevy. And my youngest drives a Toyota which is set up for the zombie apocalypse.
