12-Year Old Girl Rebuilds Car

(Video Link

When she was twelve, Kathryn DiMaria decided that she wanted a Pontiac Fiero. She bought the remains of one with babysitting money and has spent the past two years rebuilding it. By the time she turns 16, it should be fully restored:

Lately she's been focused on rebuilding a 3.4-liter Camaro engine to replace the 2.8-liter the Fiero came with. She's done with the sanding and is starting to piece together the body. She is cautiously optimistic of meeting her sweet 16 deadline.

She's busy, too, sharing what she's learned. Last month, Kathryn was short on time for posting, but her dad shared photos of the car maintenance class Kathryn taught for girls at her church.
