About BigBlock’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I grew up always a day late and a dollar short. What ever I had I had to nickel and dime togther and if it broke and I couldnt fix it, I had to get with my best friend and mechanic, Ed. It got to the point where everytime I went to see Ed, something had broken, or I needed help, or sumthin'. Anyway, long story short, now I have a little money, a wife who likes cars as much as me, and I am looking to finish her 02 Mustang. I just started on an 83 Elky, and it is shap'n up nice. I hope Ed sees this, we did a lot together before I moved off, but now I am back!
I still call and ask him questions on my cars.

Keeper runn',
High speed, Low drag!!

My first car

My first vehicle was a 1967 Datsun pickup, primer red with 16" chevy tires and wheels on the back. I purposely mounted the tires on backward so that they would run backward because I thought this would give it better traction in the mud.

Car I wish I still had

1969, Chevy, SW step side, maroon pickup, sweeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!!!

My dream car

1967 Corvette
