1. 'It's finished'
Is a project car ever really finished? No, no it is not.
2. 'I'll never sell it'
The trouble with the average project addict, is that they’ll always need a build on the go. And once their latest effort is finished (or as finished as a project ever can be), they’ll want a new challenge, and something will have to be sold to make way…
3. 'It'll be ready for the next show'
We admire the ambition, but it probably won’t be.
An engine swap is a massive undertaking, so unsurprisingly, many are adamant that they won’t be going down that route. But, engine swaps are awesome, so we won’t mind if you change your mind.
5. 'It has enough power'
Perhaps your arch rival has just cranked up the power on his ride, or maybe you’ve just gotten a bit bored. Either way, you’ll be going back on these words, maybe with an engine swap…
6. 'I just need to buy this one part. It's not expensive'
Partners be warned: if your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife spins you this line, it’s probably a giant fib.
7. 'I'm not spending any more money on it'
Budget all you want, but when you’ve reached the point where you’re sure you don’t want to spend any more money on a project, you’ll cave.
8. 'It's my last project'
Disappointed that a serial project fiend has told you this? Don’t worry, it’s probably not true.
