About Crazyfast79TA’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

Ever since I was crawling on my hands and knees playing with my Hot Wheels, I loved cars. I still have all my Hot Wheels and been thru a few real life Hot Wheels. I'd worked as a professional bodyman for 12 years. I tried to retire from bodywork so I built school busses for 8 years. They decided I wasn't needed any longer. They went out anyway. So I went back to bodywork. Did that in Ohio for 3 years before I moved to Minnesota. I got a job in a shop that restores old cars and builds custom rods, too. That job came and went after 5 years. Now I'm working at a shop that works on big rigs and regular cars. It's a job. It's all I know, so I just keep doing it. Eventually I'm going to open my own shop, the shop I should've had in '91!

My first car

My Dad's wore out '73 Vega with190,000 miles!

Car I wish I still had

'74 Chevelle I had thru High School and a few years beyond, all total about 6 years. Or maybe my '87 S-10 that I bought for myself as a birthday present when I turned 25. I put my 350 from my Chevelle in it and had a blast! I had that one for 9 years. Never should've sold it!

My dream car

One that doesn't break down or wear out. In reality I'd have to say my '71 Nova done the way I plan.

Car clubs I’m in

It's now defunct, but my friend Tim and I started a mini-truck club called "Distinguished Miniz"

Favorites

  • Driving song: any classic rock
  • Car movie: "Smokey And The Bandit"
  • Car game: does bumper tag count?

Thank's. The General Lee I have is a real General Lee. But the Batmobile is not THE real one. This is one that I am building.

April 14...Fender Liner Finally Showed Up!

I can't believe it took this long to get a simple piece of plastic! What did they have to do, retool and build it from scratch!?! They said they had one in stock, sent it to us and we sent it back. Not true. They sent a small splash shield that was wrong so...

Fourteen Days Until I Cash In!

I'll be ordering parts after the 26th. Should be getting what I need to get the S-10 running and looking good. Doing the work should go quick. Seems like spring is trying to happen! I should have it ready for late spring/early summer!
