We all lead different lives, responsibilities and backrounds. However our common thread is living the madness we have for our FFR cars.

With that, I wanted to hold an informal survey:

1. What is your occupation?
2. How many hours/week do you average on your build?
or
If you baby is completed, how many miles do you drive in a month?

I'll start:
1. Education Administration - 45 to 55 hours week
2. consistant 6-8 hours/week on build

Thanks,

Tony W.

I built my car in about two years. I worked on it a lot this summer retuning the suspension for road racing - 5 hours a week. 2500 miles so far in 1 year (on the road in oct 04). Not much time to play - go figure.

1. I design and layout woodworking books. 40-50 hours a week. Sometimes 60-70

www.foxchapelpublishing.com

2. I have three children 7, 4, and 1. I'm a Cub Scout den leader with 13 boys. I'm lucky if I get 2-3 hours a week. 10-11pm if I can drag myself out to the garage.

But, I'm still building the car of my dreams!
