This is just what the world needs, young people doing proper, useful, productive work, instead of trying to get rich on reality TV

  8) We have a place in Cleveland called the "Skidmark Garage". They had an activity a while ago where a group of girls restored a vintage Honda motorcycle! Great stuff!
