This 1973 Cuda Sanders includes a 340 cubic inch V-8 and lots of style with a dual air intake and powerful exhaust system.

But, most important is the stick-to-it-ness of the 9th grader.

Ok, guys, no more excuses. Get your dreamcar and get it done.

This sounds like my friend ZanySmurph's story with his '77 (?) Chevy Nova Rallye Sport. As I recall, he bought it at 14, did everything himself (with some advice from his dad, who is a certified mechanic with his own shop), and had it finished by the time he got his license! I'm going to have to tell him about this!
