About friesdried’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

As a child I had a bunch of Matchbox and Hot Wheels that my brother and I played with all the time. I always got some kind of car toys for my Birthday, Christmas etc. I really got hooked when I bought my second car. This was a 1972 Challenger. I walked home from school every day and passed this car sitting in the driveway in Converse TX. I sold my 307 69 slug Camaro and knew exactly what I was going to buy. I approached the owner and bought it that day. This car had cool oozing from every angle, from the 340 FOUR BARREL call outs on the hood to the four black strips on each side fading away toward the rear of the car. This led to a myraid of cars to 454 SS Chevelle, V8 Vegas, etc etc. All this led to first TA a 1979 Tenth Anniversary. Since then I have owned a dozen TAs and currently in the middle of understanding the fine art of TPI on an 89 5 Liter 5 speed GTA.
