Had to wait for the grandkids to involve youngsters in my LBC addictions.  It doesn't get any better than riding with the grand kids.

The kid knows of what he speaks!  He is one of the Triumph gurus now. It's kind of cool that now I get to hang out with him while he works on my cars.

Dad :)

As the 36 year old "kid" of a Triumph guy, I encourage you to include your sons in the garage time if they are showing any interest in the cars at their early age.  Allow them to become invested in the project now, even if only in terms of time and emotion.

I was included in the garage time from the first day my dad brought home a TR6 when I was 11 -  by the time I was permitted to take it out unsupervised at age 16, I had so much "invested" in it, that it helped me resist many of of the unwise things my teenage brain was telling me to do behind the wheel .....add to that the opportunity to learn about working on cars AND spending some pretty cool time with dad.  

Not every kid is interested in this sort of thing, but if they are, certainly allow them to become a part of it!
