Worth It
« on: December 19, 2017, 09:34:01 AM »
Was thinking the other day about something that happened back in September of 2016 after I had gotten my GTR running. Thought I would share it here. I bought this GTR from a widow whose husband was kill in a work related accident about 10 years earlier. She has 2 sons both in their early 20's. This GTR sat in an abandoned house for longer than they have been alive and had never seen it run so one Saturday I rode it over to their place to show them the bike and the younger of the brothers was home. Josh looked it over had a big smile on his face amazed at the transformation. Told him about the restoration process and all I had done to it. Then I asked him if he would like to take it for a ride. Oh the look he got on his face I will never forget, he didn't say a word just a slight yes nod with his head. I explained the shift pattern and away he went! This alone made all the time, money, and effort worth it. I think I was smiling just as big as Josh was!................Rod

Cool story Rod. Nice going sharing your passion with other with attachments to it. Being one of the good guys is very underrated at times.
