    I've always been curious as to how people with a passion for their vehicles, such as those of us who elect to join in specific forums, choose to involve their offspring in a manner which would also help shape and build similar passions.

    Hence, I'd like to begin with these photos of my little man helping to remove the garage dust from "Veruca" this morning...feel free to chime in!

    He likes going high...crazy little bugger!

    Slightly off-topic but how did you come up with the name Veruca?

    Hahahaha...actually I was pondering a few names. Valerie and Veronica were being considered but then my mother said, "How about Veruca from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie (with Johnny Depp)?" She mentioned how it goes with my propensity to buy what I want and when I want it (I'm a fairly immediate gratification type, when it's affordable of course).

    That's the story...if you haven't seen the movie just watch the part where that spoiled little girl is saying, "I want it now daahhdy!" (English accent assumed).

    Haha.. That's great, the little guy looks to be doing a great job!
    If we don't have a vehicle name thread, we probably should....
