When Do You Stop Encouraging Your Friend's Crazy Project Car?Raphael Orlove6/06/13 5:00pmFiled to: Conversation of the DayProject CarsComment of the DayCOTD771EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkWhen I heard my friend was considering buying a completely disassembled early '70s Alfa Romeo GTV I told him he was crazy and he should get something more reasonable. He bought the old Italian coupe anyway and is in the process of building his dream car.AdvertisementI doubted him at the very start because, well, even trained workers at Alfa's factory could hardly put a GTV together right, let alone him, just a guy. I didn't want to see my friend get wrecked by an impossible build. Well, he's becoming a pretty good wrencher and his car is made of pure amazingness. So I'm eating my words for suggesting a route of caution and sanity.The question came up today when we were talking about life lessons we've learned from our cars. GatorEight had his own sensible/crazy conflict.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
