About GMFWDFAN’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

It all started when I was very young. One of my first words was "wheel". From the time I learned to talk, I was basically obsessed with cars. I had thousands of Hot Wheels, Matchbox, etc. die cast cars, tons of roadways and miniature cities built for said cars, and even got my first car a whole two years before I was even able to legally drive.

My current car is a 2008 Mazda3 S Touring hatchback, with just under 40,000 miles.

My first car

It was a 1992 Chevrolet Beretta, equipped with the slow but reliable 2.2 liter 4 cylinder mated with the also slow and reliable 3 speed automatic transmission.

It began to nickel and dime us to death with constant little old-car problems, so we sold it for 1700 bucks. A month after we sold it the transmission unexpectedly took a dump.

Car I wish I still had

Before I even got my driver's permit, my grandfather bought an 88 Chevrolet Celebrity Eurosport with 28k original miles. Basically, it was brand new. The paint shone like new, the interior was stain/tear/fade free. Seeing/driving this car was like taking a step back in time to 1988. I wanted this car to be my first car so badly, but my grandpa found a willing buyer before I was able to drive, and away it went. :-(

My dream car

1969 Dodge Charger "General Lee"

Car clubs I’m in
