It's Alive, Igor!

Bench Racing

In a sense, as auto enthusiasts who restore or rebuild cars, we are all attempting to be Dr. Frankenstein.

We start with a carcass, we hunt through graveyards for the freshest or most well-preserved dead bodies to harvest useful parts from, we build them in our laboratories, and bring them to life with a jolt of electricity.

We glory as their dead hearts beat again.

Then there are those of us that just kill perfectly good cars and turn them into abominable creations that never function right again.

Ah, such is the process of learning and creation. You really do have to break a few eggs to make an omelette.

Especially if you didn't learn how to create a Frankenomelette before you got started in the first place.

Happy Halloween, everyone. I hope you're able to enjoy scavenging through your local boneyard this holiday season.
