About CliffClavin’s Garage


My first car

1978 Datsun 510 Wagon, silver, 4 speed, factory a/c. My uncle sold it to me for $10. Ran great, good mileage, could cram 8 folks in it. Meet its end with a Ford F-150 that ran a stop sign.

Car I wish I still had

1987 Volvo 240 Wagon. I could haul anything in that car. Alas, had to get rid of it when I got a new job and needed something to travel long distances in. Found out the guy I sold it too wrecked it not 2 weeks after he bought it from me.

My dream car

Hmmm. Right now it would be a Austin Healey 100S or a Lotus Exige S. Changes weekly.

Car clubs I’m in

AtlantaMINIS (I'm on the steering committee), Volvo C30 Forum, Georgia Triumph Association.
