ID:	1135062Students got the fenders removed and Parke Bishop Built radiator support on and lined up perfect. We had 9 students stay after school to work on and another senior female student take a few of my auto students under her wing and show them the ropes with stripping the fender and decklid. Thanks to ridetech and bangshift the article that was wrote and published on thier pages made it to out local news facebook with lots of positive about our program and school. I spent some time today showing and reading all the comments from face book and our build sites to the students. Thank you for all the positive feedback and we will continue give constant updates on the build. Drove over 5 hours to Maine this weekend to trade the sbc 350 for a aritic cat 400 fourwheeler. i was showing the kids how to use craigslist and now listing the quad to try to come up with funds for the t56. Trying to teach them to hustle to make a dollar and reinvest to make $2. I think one great thing about this build is next time they look at a restored car or race car i am hoping they will have a new respect for craftsmanship and the time it takes to do the job right.

    It warms my heart to hear that the industry is kicking in. I'm just a guy working in a home shop and I can't donate much but I CAN appreciate that those who can, are.

    Good to see this project has made it on our "front page" - always cool. Have you turned the kids on to our "Project Cars" section? If I were them I'd really dig that.

    Want to Give a Big Thanks To Parke Bishop over at Bishop Built Rides. This is a gorgeous radiator support that started this whole build. Parke donated this to the dinner we where attending and I won it as the door prize. I was able to speak at the dinner and explained that i am a automotive instructor at a Vocational High school and how i try to incorporate building cars into my curriculum. Unfortunately any of our projects are privately funded by us teachers and it take a long time to complete one of our projects. Many times they get put on the back burner because of funds not being able to finish them. I exsplained that i would have never been able to buy such a nice piece and explained how grateful i was. Before I got back to my seat Jason Over at Ridetech reach out to me and gave me his card and said he wants to help out. Rob over at Pch rods gave me his card and said he would help out also. I cant express how i felt to have these guys help out and how excited my students were when i told them about the help.

    Cool project; I'll be following this one.

    ​If that is truly a Vette engine and you want a 6.0 LS, I would sell it to some crazy Vette restorer and generate some $.

    To me there is something sacred about passing along the info and the passion for building cars - or anything else done with one's hands, for that matter. Are you familiar with "Craftsman's Legacy"? Worth a Google. The host is a motorcycle builder but he visits craftspersons from quilt makers to blacksmiths.

    Please keep up this thread so we can see what the kids are up to. Many of us don't DO social media (I'm one of them) so we'd be out of the loop if you don't input here. If you look thru this "Project Cars" topic you'll see all sorts of interesting builds that might be inspirational to the kids.

    Best of luck!
