    Na. Truth be told, I do what I want to the extent I am capable. I never worry about what anyone else thinks about my car, and I always appreciate what others are doing with their cars. And I try to encourage anyone who wants to enter the hobby to do so. Too much emphasis these days on absolute perfection. I like going to the nationals for just that reason, all types of builds are in attendance and no one is judging anyone, or they should not be. There are a couple of awards for a couple of cars but most are attending to be among the breathern with whatever version of a trifive they have. My kind of show. I think the people who most enjoy this hobby are those who are in it for the fun. Nothing wrong with the show car enthusiasts, I totally appreciate the unbelievable quality of those builds and the financial commitment you make with those kinds of cars. But for me, I like to tinker and play. Life is short you know what I mean!

    So here I am, happy to assist anyone with whatever I can assist them with.

    Family four door and markm, I think you may be positing in the wrong thread, no?

    Mike, you're in the 99% of us who just enjoy the cars (working on and driving them) and the people (helping them, BS'ing and talking to them)... ... and now you're bringing up your son to be among us... Congrats!

    Not many can afford the $$$ for the all out, no expenses spared, show cars...

    I am at a loss to understand why you think a 4 dr is "unsafe"? From a structural standpoint, the center pillar and doors would make the roof stronger in a rollover situation, much more so than a hardtop or convertible for sure. Just like color choices, 2 door or 4 door is an individual choice, and in my opinion should not be subject to criticism. A 4 door is certainly more practical for ease of entry/exit, especially for a family situation.

    That comment was totally uncalled for Mark.
    I'm calling you out here. If you don't have something valid to say keep your fingers on some other keyboard.

    I don't exactly know what he is talking about truth be told. My car is a 2 door sedan so all the talk about a 4 door? Best I can figure is he is responding to the wrong thread.
