My older son has already placed his claim on both of mine- the '65 and the '15. I guess my younger son gets everything else.

That's awesome! My 5 year old son laid claim to my '64.5 coupe the day I bought it. That's ok, he can have it if he wants it. Once I'm "done" with it, I'll find the Fastback that I want. My other son will get a classic as well, maybe a '78-79 Bronco. My wife asks me all the time what if they don't want an old car. I laugh about like the old man and tell her there's no such thing.

I was touched when my 8 year old son said "I get that when your dead".

As long as he didn't say it with a knife in his hand and a devilish grin on his face. .

Sure, you can put in a claim for anything I have. Tell Micah you want the 1911 and then hide real fast!

I have posted a back story on MyFirstCar a couple of times, easy enough to find, so I'll just say I've had it since I was 16. Both my sons have ridden in it since newborn, and they both love it so they have both said they wanted it one day. I replied, "This one is mine, so you have you have to get your own!" One of my sons is about to turn 15 and I have to teach him how to drive. So, I started looking for a project Mustang or two we could work on together. I was hoping to find something that didn't need cutting and welding just to get started, as I can do pretty much anything else at home. That meant trying to find something with a solid unibody, floors and quarters, at least. I kept digging and found a solid Southern '66 Emberglo hardtop with Parchment interior, 289, auto, power steering, and A/C to work on with his old man, learn the basics, drive when the weather is nice and special occasions, and keep for a lifetime of memories. I have a "build thread" going called Emberglo for my son". His little brother wants a Nighmist Blue one...

I used to have a very cool and very rare Saab 900 SPG. When I sold it my youngest son went nuts. Sobbing and crying. When I calmed him down and asked him why he was so upset, his response was: Michael is supposed to get the Mustang, Rachel gets the Triumph and I was supposed to get the Saab...


I had no idea my kids already divided up my stuff. I told him, nobody has dibbs on anything, the kid that shows the most interest in a car would get it...


Looks like he will get the video game console...

Despite my daughters hinting that my grandson should drive my Mustang to his prom, growing up in our rural area, he is longing for a pickup and I have my eyes on a well maintained 92 F150 that he has taken a shine to. I am really hoping though that his interest expand one day and he develops a true appreciation and desire to have my Mustang passed down to him. I am thinking that as I get closer to shiny new Rangoon Red paint job, the Mustang will turn into something interesting to him instead of "that old car" in the shop.

I have this same worry. Wouldn't you just love to have a grandpa with a 67 GT 350? Well, my grandson can't keep his paws off of his video games. No idea how cool cars are. Yet!
