"JUST ONE MORE THING AND THEN IT'S DONE": THE WAR CRY OF THE DELUDED CAR GUY
Well known philosopher Yogi Berra had it right because it really "ain't over until it's over". There are no better examples of this cold hard fact than a car project- even though many car guys are foolish enough to believe otherwise.
The end of a car project is really just a fake rabbit on a greyhound track and most car guys are like those plucky but dumb, skinny mutts who will never get to the fake rabbit, no matter how hard they try.
There is no finish line for car projects and there is no mouthful of fake rabbit for the dogs.

Jim picked five cars that he would like to see brought back in 2013 in this piece and I didn't disagree with his picks in the largest sense of the word "disagree". But I didn't feel a mental push to imitate his choices.
Sure, I liked them but I had different ideas about what five cars should be brought back in 2013.
DOGS IN CARS 2013: ROVER RIDING IN STYLE WITH HIS BEST FRIEND
There's no question that dogs are the most loyal mammals ever invented. Occasionally your dog like to get a little frisky with your favorite pillow-or left leg...but you can't fault his loyalty.
Your dog may like to mark their territory on the new rug milliseconds after the carpet guy leaves but his loyalty is unsurpassed.
MY FIRST CAR: '55 PLYMOUTH-A LOOK BACK AT THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY
Debra Stoski was a typical teenager back in the 70s because her first car gave her the freedom and independence that comes with a new license and a new ride.
This was an era when you didn't look at a new Honda Civic as a viable option for a kid's first car-this was era when an affordable car like a mild mannered and gently used 4 door sedan.
In Debra's case the car was a '55 Plymouth.
