About Buddy’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

Well, it was cars and dirt bikes at the same time. A friends dad had a '37 Chevy coupe with a tunnel rammed 427and a 4 spd.. Going to Gateway International (The Swamp) was my indoctrination to drag racing. It stuck! After a really bad accident to where I couldn't race flat track anymore, I got into drag racing myself (street and on the strip) with my '70 Duster.

My first car

1965 Pontaic 2+2 with a 421 and Turbo 400
1970 Plymouth Duster, 340 4 spd.
1970 Plymouth Duster, 340 4 spd.
1970 Plymouth Duster, 340 auto
1968 Plymouth Roadrunner, 383 auto
1972 Dodge Challenger, 340 4 spd.
1970 Plymouth 'Cuda, 440 auto ran 11.20's, first experience with a tranny brake - lot's of fun!
1967 Plymouth Barracuda 383 auto ran 11.20's through the mufflers on street tires, fun street car!

Car I wish I still had

My first 1970 340, 4spd. Duster

My dream car

Best (and repeated) time is 7.94 @ 168 mph, with a 165" wheelbase, it's always an adrenaline Rush!
