This was a really cool thread. My son is 19 months now and is a car bike freak. As soon as he gets in to the car he comes to the drivers seat and start driving with all the jest he have. Changing gears , honking and turning the steering and make the "brrrummm " "brruum" sound. I dont know what will he make me do when he reaches this stage.

Samu only has to pay some insurance amount to his son. May be some trip to favorite places of his son.

One of the so very refreshing threads that I've read here.. Great job done for son's school project and vandalised too. Sonny boy must be heart-broken. But since he got 10/10 after the teacher saw the photographs should be a little consolation.

The word "totalled" was hilarious.

Can you create a tutorial for "not so creative" moms/dads/aunts/uncles.....?

I would be baby-sitting a hyper-active 5 year old for the whole of next week and this would be a fun activity for both of us.

More than hilarious, it actually shows how passionate we are about what drives us - our drives !

Next time I'll take W-I-P photos too, and provide the schematics.
Is the teacher a BHPian now ?
