About bandito_malo’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
WhenI was in high school, everybody wanted a 55 Chevy or 55 Merc,but only the rich kids had them,the rest of us drove flathead fords and old Chevys,and an occasional 50 Olds.Some of the real motor heads built 32s,but to do that you had to have access to alot of tools and a garage,so there were very few of them..It amazes me to see the cars that people are making hot rods out of these days,back in the day, most of us would'nt be caught dead in,(like my 46 Plym).back then you got an old Ford,lowered it in the front(by heating the springs),putting fake white walls on it and painting the rims red. I would be remiss to forget the primer,your car had to be primered or you were'nt **** ! So don't be fooled when you see some yo yo come cruising in in their 35 chevy telling everybody what a cool rod it was in the 50s,the junk yards were full of crap like that ! I used to think I was cool when I could borrow my folks 54 Ford 6 cylinder business coupe,(no radio),and go cruise Eat N Run.
I along with many others used to go down town in Sacramento on Saturday nite and cruise K st. and hang out at Mels and have your radio tuned to KFI listening to "Wolfman Jack",but most of us were driving Dad's car.
They were good times,usually sometime during the evening there would be a mass exodus of cars heading out to the country to watch some drags,then the cops would come and run us all home !
Today is better though,because now it is pretty easy to buy or build the car of your dreams,thanks to old farts and generak motors,and thank god you can still go down town and cruise with all your fellow motor heads !
My first car
was a 46 Plymouth 4 door fastback that had a rod knocking in it,I drove it to school for a whole year like that before it finally passed away,then I got a cool 39 Chevy
Car I wish I still had
