My brother decided one day that he wanted to do stock car racing. I was a bit hesitant but because I am the mechanic in the family I decided I was in. We got a car and I transformed it into a racing car. A roll cage had to be fabricated and after the first race, a new engine rebuilt and installed.
Also at the same time, we had to build a trailer to haul this car and I had to modify my truck to haul the trailer. All this fabrication was done on an uneven back lawn!
After working out the initial kinks we were doing pretty well when my brother got into a massive crash. The car was totaled.
