Yup, although I haven't sold my first build, a 66 Mustang, I enjoyed the time in the shop. It has about 5000 miles on it in 20 years. The shop time is a big part of the picture. I am only a mechanic but the time spent attempts to turn me into an engineer,fabricator,body man, painter designer, develop patients or lack their of. The process is called enjoying a hobby. In the end it is what it is. In my case havin fun.
