I must be a bit slow, didn't build my first engine until I was 16 but, it was the fastest car in town for awhile.
I am REALLY slow since I built my first motor when I was 19... it was a Diesel though.. and definitely NOT the fastest car in our garage.,
to the OP i say go for it!! enjoy the time building it together.. in a world today of kids that seemingly would rather play on their iPads , i see this as an opportunity to teach real life skills.. and then the travelling... nothing takes the place in Life of travelling..
