Teen Girl Rebuilds Car from Scratch
Fourteen-year-old Kathryn DiMaria can't get her driver's license for another two years, but that hasn't stopped her from building the car of her dreams. At age 12, Kathryn convinced her parents to let her buy and begin restoring a 1986 Pontiac Fiero with $450 in babysitting money. Over the past two years, she has painstakingly restored every part of her Fiero by hand, quickly learning advanced mechanical skills such as welding, grinding, upholstering, sandblasting -- even how to rebuild an engine. With dad Jerry as her loyal project partner, and plenty of automotive know-how from Uncle Bob, Kathryn has embarked on an epic journey that is shattering gender stereotypes, inspiring thousands, and opening doors she never imagined. Watch and learn how Kathryn's project earned her an invitation from General Motors to attend the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and hang out with two female engineers from the original Fiero team.
