Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Building Time continued

The beer is gone, Dave is too.
Just Jim and me, we know what to do.

We start sanding, but not with much heart.
I step outside, gotta pee and fart.

Slowly a notion begins to dawn.
This kind of work is taking too long.

For decades I've built in this direction.
Each one better than the last, striving for perfection.

This roadster is taking oh so long.
Afraid before it's finished, I'll be gone.

The kids, the grandkids and even my Honey.
Don't give a hoot, they'd rather have the money.

A legacy is what I've been creating.
The wisdom of that I'm now debating.

Lots of headaches for them, getting rid of my stash.
Better if now I turn them into cash.

But what about this roadster half done?
I will finish it fast and have some fun.

I noticed some hot rods at recent shows.
They were rough, I turned up my nose.

What kind of guy would drive with primer and rust?
I always thought pretty paint was a must.

But the way it is going, three more years on my roadster.
By then I'll be way more than an oldster.

So I threw all my finishing supplies in the trash.
It will save lots of time and a bundle of cash.

Now my hot rod will be done in a jiffy.
Even though it will look kind of iffy.

To create a roadster monument was a temptation.
Now I'll be happy to just call it transportation.

No longer will I have to hire a detailer.
And I can get rid of that enclosed trailer.

Yes, no longer will I fear criticism by my peers.
I'll just sit with those other guys and have me some beers.
