About CindyMeitle’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
I have been immersed in the collector and exotic car realm for 16 years. I work on all kinds of events from sophisticated concours d'elegance judged shows that attract world class cars from around the world....to rod, custom and muscle car cruises...to classic car auctions. I'm known for bringing sponsors, vendors and event book advertisers and coordinating all aspects of the event from Grand Marshal's and VIPS to entrants and layout. This year, I handle the Sept 19-21 Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance and Road Rallye in Los Angeles at Donald Trump's Trump National Golf Club www.pvconcours.com and Concorso Arizona November 15 at The Boulders Resort in Scottsdale, AZ www.2008concorsoarizona.com.
I represent several car-centric websites such as www.velocetoday.com for very serious Italian and french car enthusiasts and German-based www.classicdriver.com which pools the European countries and opens the gates to doing two-way business with the United States and other countries.
I represent the new Garage Style Magazine and Highline Autos Magazine.
I have several clients who provide products and services to the car realm such as Unique Movie Cars, Luckies Customs, GarageTown USA, radio talk show Two for the Road www.twofortheroadusa.com, Fox Sports Network's Motorsports Mania, automotive photographer Derek Gardner www.derekgard.../carclassics, Mark Cantey and his new book about 100 years of GM Design www.gmdesignbook.com, and many more.
I get my car fix by working around the sexiest cars in the world, and the people who own and love them. I'm up for any race or motorsports event at the drop of a hat.
My first car
My then boyfriend told me if I ever got in an accident, I should be able to walk away from it in one piece. Thus, he talked me out of the VW convertible I wanted for cruising Malibu, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey and Venice. I opted for a muscle car and found an oxidized, baby blue 1968 Pontiac Firebird with an overhead cam engine. The owner had just passed on and his widow, a "little ol' lady in Pasadena" was selling it for only $1,200.00. I fell in love with the smell of the interior and restored the entire car, replacing the engine with a big block 350 which was use to pulling around a big LeMans, and gave my little car full speed and power.
Car I wish I still had
My second car, a 1967 Pontiac Firebird with original hood tach and 160 mph speedometer, wind sings and 400 hood.
My dream car
A 1967 convertible Pontiac Firebird with black interior, hood tach, big block engine, turbo shifter, dual turbo exhaust, headers, 3" exhaust pipe, 60" BIAS ply tires and Chrome rims and working air conditioning and heating.
