About Carolina_29053’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

After being a helicopter mechanic in the Marines for 4 years (Sikorsky CH-53) I went through several old muscle cars, to include a 70 Chevelle SS, and a 69 Firebird. I fell in love with the 2nd generation f-body cars after my first 71 Firebird Espirit. It was a sporty car with good looks and had enough leg room for this 6'-2" frame of mine. And performance and handling wasn't bad either. That was 1974 and the love for those cars has only grown. After several f-body cars, I currently own 4 Trans Am's of which my favorite is the 73 that I am restoring at the moment. It has been painted and I have just begun assembling it. Can't wait!

My first car

My first car was a powder blue 65 Falcon 4 door <snicker> O.K. I'm an ol geezer........just turned 53, but refuse to grow up!

Car I wish I still had

69 Firebird, 400c.i. with TH400 trans. and deluxe interior. Green on green. That car was a monster.

My dream car

Griswold's pea green Family Truckster

Car clubs I’m in

None........car clubs seem to like to sit and look at their cars. I just like driving them and I can look at it while I fill up with gas. :)
