I have a passion for old cars (primarily pre-1972 Chevys, Corvettes, and Jeeps) and have bought and sold a few cars per year over the past 15 years.  I find myself almost "addicted" to searching for…Continue

"I'd love to answer all of your questions.  Once I figure it out, I'll let you know.  But, I don't see any problem with making a living off of cars.  Seems as good a way to pay the bills as any.  The tents Paul made…"

"You could always restore a classic and donate it for a charity auction.  Or, you could restore not-so-collectible cars to help those who can't afford a reliable car.  You obviously have a passion for it.  As long as people can…"

"WOW!  I had no idea this would be such a popular (and common) issue... not just with regards to cars but in all aspects of discerning God's will vs individual passion!  As such, I want to thank each and every one of you for…"

"One more thing to note... I like this webpage by Rob Kibbe (http://www.themusclecarplace.com/cars-for-a-living).  It tells the story of how he didn't just dream, he did it.  It seems like a pretty good indicator of what's…"

"Russ, you make a great point about Paul's approach to his plans.  Colossians 3:23 (ESV) says "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men". We're instructed to do our work wholeheartedly. If you find that…"

"Your passion for cars and your desire to turn this into a business might be God's leading. Why not go with it and see? The Apostle Paul didn't wait for a lightning bolt from God, he just made his plans and tacked on "God willing"…"

Cars - Passion vs Distraction

I have a passion for old cars (primarily pre-1972 Chevys, Corvettes, and Jeeps) and have bought and sold a few cars per year over the past 15 years.  I find myself almost "addicted" to searching for the next great deal or barn find and spend hours on the internet/phone identifying, tracking (maintaining a detailed list), and contacting potential sellers.  I would love to establish a business from this passion, but I continually question myself on whether this is a passion or a distraction from…See More
