Today is a beautiful 17C and sunny... what better day for an old Chevy ride! I threw Abby's child seat into the back, and gave her a ride to daycare this morning. Next I headed to the coffee shop, and then over to Southfields Public School for a "Show and Tell" date with Mrs. Pearce's Kindergarten class.
I talked to them about having a hobby, and meeting friends that enjoy things that they do. Some of them told me what they do as hobbies, and how they have different friends from just the same kids at school. I explained how having an interest in old cars has helped me meet many people. I told them that you guys and gals are cool!
They had a bunch of questions to ask as well. We talked about how old it is, and who helps me work on it. (I mentioned you guys again!) It was also fun explaining how much an old car costs to kids that have no concept of how money works!! I told them I got the car for free, and it's been an arm and a leg since then!
We then had a quick instruction about no touching, and did a walk around the car. I wanted to talk about the 92 hp output from the 216 cubic inch inline six... they wanted to make silly faces in the curved chrome bumpers. We did that instead! It was a fun morning, and I hope that maybe it put a spark in a young mind...
