  2. OrangeGaming May 29, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    Sam aren`t you supposed to be doing your mission?

  3. Devin G May 29, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    Brilliant dad

  4. Devin G May 29, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    She's following her dreams? And nothing can stop her but people like you, who question her and fail and look stupid.

  5. shimaki591 May 29, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Her dad is really awesome

  6. m .jaramillo May 30, 2013 at 2:08 am

    She needs to be in the kitchen cooking. Learning how to raise kids. Females have too much freedom. Women's brains should be sent back to the stone age.

  7. Paul Allen May 30, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    loser* and yes you are

  8. Derp Derpson May 30, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    she probably welded her braces aswell

  9. Guy May 31, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    Good lord she looks like a cave-woman though.

  10. smukase June 1, 2013 at 7:16 am

    why? no one on this earth was meant to be exactly the same so you should have no reason to be like her or do what she does because it's amazing. find out what you love to do and you'll also excel at it 🙂

  11. TNFL Raven June 2, 2013 at 8:28 am

    could you do this at the age of 14?

  12. rasmuspanfuer June 2, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    she is 14 years…

  13. hhm911 June 2, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    Respect !!

  14. Jackson Dasilva June 2, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    make sure you always wear a mask when sanding…it's bad for the lungs!!

  15. Jaffa* June 3, 2013 at 7:13 am

    stay away from drugs don't alter that brain…

  16. Ed Eddy June 3, 2013 at 9:49 am

    Twilight again noooooo

    It's not so much "society making this career field seem like its just for guys", it's in the nature of males and females. Scientific studies have shown that, before society shapes a person, male babies naturally prefer playing with more mechanical toys, whereas female babies do not, for the most part. With that in mind, I think it's good when girls are encouraged to explore fields not thought of as 'woman's work'.

  18. joe p. 110110 June 3, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    yea i just work an bought my car

  19. Switchback June 3, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    You even spelled loser wrong

  20. William Fulton June 3, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Amazing young lady and a smart business woman. Well done,

  21. Eric Lopez June 4, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    Why did she get obe with a beat up chassis?

  22. Laz N June 4, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    her parents should get that girl an old alfa romeo giulia gtv to rebuild all this hard work put to a shitty car like the fiero for nothing

  23. Pas De MD June 5, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Wow this is great! Thanks for doing this story and congratulations to Kathryn.

  24. Juffin doo June 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    stop the goddamn kitchen jokes you guys, you've just got to accept that 14 year old girl knows more than you about cars.

  25. Napa120 June 5, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    I'm 18 and I have a 1973 charger I'm building from scratch… buying parts and restoring them is pretty fun

  26. jon4miamiheat June 6, 2013 at 3:20 am

    i want to see the car when its done

  27. lckeeper1 June 6, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    Great piece! Truly an inspiration to see someone so young (boy or girl) finding a passion and really diving head first into it! Best of luck and continued success!

  28. monkeyman522 June 8, 2013 at 6:36 am

    I commend her efforts, I only wish she had picked a better car. The Fiero was a real turd mobile.

  29. pilotpig June 8, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    refg

  30. yo mero June 9, 2013 at 4:22 am

    there are so many cars and chose a fiero?

  31. James Hastings June 9, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    Been fixing up a 1976 Dodge Aspen Wagon for a year or so, now. Just gotta fix up the interior and swap out the engine and trannie. 1 month to go.

  32. Groud Frank June 10, 2013 at 10:22 am

  33. Dvir Suliman June 10, 2013 at 2:11 pm

  34. Rogemama June 10, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Twilight reference… The remaining 6 or so minutes of this video are now a mystery.

  35. ljguy300 June 11, 2013 at 2:10 am

  39. Christian Alberto June 12, 2013 at 1:37 pm

  40. Yoel W. June 12, 2013 at 7:36 pm

  41. william C June 13, 2013 at 1:20 pm

  42. Joey Levenson June 14, 2013 at 1:00 am

    What a smart kid!

  43. Rasmunsen009 June 14, 2013 at 2:19 pm

  44. LeighhMakeup June 14, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Wow.
    I wish my mind worked like that.

  45. WeirdAlSuperFan June 15, 2013 at 5:33 am

    haha that CMU jacket. she's not dreaming big enough.

  46. Akash June 15, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Still a better video than twilight though 😉

  47. Pax Humana June 15, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    I am so damn tired of the argument that we are not encouraging women to go into fields that are generally seen as work by men. There are plenty of men in modern times, as well as in the past, that did work that was traditionally seen as work by women, yet they defied the stereotypes of their fields. How about you just shut the hell up, work your ass off, and make something good out of your life and tell the haters and naysayers to go politely piss up a rope? Respect is made by effort, period.

  48. Sakib Islam June 16, 2013 at 5:08 am

    Talented, yes. Prodigy, no

  49. Sakib Islam June 16, 2013 at 5:08 am

    Talented, yes. Prodigy, no.

  50. Wolf Rose June 16, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Thats fucking cool to see.. You can tell that her dad is obviously a car builder and is probably building half of that Fiero but that little girl was killing it.

  51. reubenkinara June 16, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    How did she start? o.O

  52. 2low2rl June 17, 2013 at 3:07 am

    "I'm rebuilding a Pontiac fiero."

    …why? lol

  53. carloscano3 June 17, 2013 at 6:21 am

    i think thats why she wants it done by the time she can…..

  54. Jude Glazer June 17, 2013 at 7:06 am

    There are these prodigies who do so much, and then there's me. Sitting on my bed, procrastinating.

  55. mkieffer92 June 18, 2013 at 1:21 am

    she spent 2,000? Plus the 30 grand in tools her dad has…plus a shop

  56. thesmoothone June 18, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    man up

  57. Kevin June 18, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Doing what she did requires massive amounts of time, money, and knowledge. From what I viewed, she had great resources(an uncle who could supply her with tools and such and her father already seemed very knowledgeable with car restoration.(enough to find and appraise a fiero himself) I'd say to start, read up on cars-Find a good automotive encyclopedia/ use the internet-go to car shows and link up with people there and discuss with your parents. It's not as hard as it looks. Give it a shot!

  58. Jaime Fontes. June 19, 2013 at 10:45 am

    I really don't understand what the big deal is.

  59. WhipLash Raids June 19, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I zoned out wen she sed she watches twighlight

  60. Marcopolo Alcapone June 19, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    what…u 16 n u Free…I'm 27 n still under pressure…

  61. MexicanNigga (•_• ;) June 20, 2013 at 9:43 am

    whenever she gets married, the roles will change he will go back in the kitchen while she fixes cars

  62. MKYRR June 20, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    I mean sure it's awesome she's doing this, but i think the yellow gauge cluster looks really ricey. I hope at least it's a 5 speed or in my opinion it's a waste of time. Oh while you're at it drop a LS1 in the rear.

  63. Travis Hofstetter June 20, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    this is an amazing story.

  64. Unmannedair June 20, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    She should try designing a plane. It is great fun.

  65. mmmskateboards June 21, 2013 at 2:00 am

    No straight edges on a Fiero? Have you looked at one? It's a wedge. Either way she's doing it pretty right.

  66. CHKNSTU June 21, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    they know the engines in those fieros caught on fire right?

  67. Thomas Peoples June 21, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    THAT'S WHY THE FLASH SURPRESSERS WERE INPLACED THE NEXT YEAR! ….. DON'T YOU KNOW?

  68. Dave Scott June 21, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    Awesome girl with amazing drive, great parents and great work!!!

  69. mlsargent51 June 22, 2013 at 2:41 am

    True automotive technician.. 1 that can't stand doing the body work! 🙂 Great work, hope it all goes well!

  70. kiwiHVGuy June 22, 2013 at 8:51 am

    I agree. Some people are just fucking sexist assholes, they need to shut up and learn some respect.

  71. Boosted Bradley June 22, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    when does she turn 15?

  72. kenkko asagi June 23, 2013 at 3:34 am

    If you don't wanna sand, use paint stripper

  73. Dan Benkert June 23, 2013 at 5:06 am

    This is fantastic and inspiring !!!!

  74. w41duvernay June 23, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    Should have yanked out the crappy 2.8L v6 or swapped in the 4t60 tranny to make it better.

  75. Ro Lari June 24, 2013 at 1:30 am

    she's 16! what were you doing at 16?

  76. TheEngine61 June 24, 2013 at 2:29 am

    looks like he knows alot about that

  77. Patrick Roe June 24, 2013 at 3:46 am

    "Flint, Michigan. It's a great place to be…to work on a car." LOL

  78. David S June 24, 2013 at 10:58 am

    by that time "car fixing" will be a thing of the past.
    I cannot see a future for gasoline cars post-2025

  79. Stephen Salazar June 24, 2013 at 2:51 pm

  80. Lua Rodriguez June 24, 2013 at 9:51 pm

  87. Aslesha Salkar June 26, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    I really want to see the car when it's finished. Please put the finishing model on here.

  88. jonamuk7 June 27, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    There is no greater compensation on the thought of you going to be free

  92. Skittle July 3, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    I could not work on a engine without OHC 😛 fucking pulling the camshaft from the middle of the engine is just weird

  93. Green Simplicity July 5, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    I hope someone would guide her to learn about electric vehicle then moving forward from convention system to unconvention teslas impulse technogies overunity stuffs.

  94. PlebScrubber July 10, 2013 at 7:13 am
