About CurbSide_66’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I curently own two mid '60's Plymouth Fury's, a '65 Fury III four door sport sedan and a '66 Plymouth Fury VIP two door sport coupe. Both cars are fully functional, my wife and I enjoy them in the summer time. We also enjoy motor cycle riding and cruising the original alignments of Historic Route 66 in Illinois and Missouri.

I build and collect 1:25 scale model cars and restore original annual amature built models. I enjoy making masters for a resin model company and have built many resin cars. I also collect and modify 1:18 die cast model cars, changing incorrect features to make the replica look more authentic. I also add features that were mistakenly over-looked by the manufaturer.

I also restore and collect vintage Schwinn bicycles from the '50's - '70's.

My first car

Was a 1962 Pontiac Catalina two door sedan I bought for $85 back in 1973. It was in pretty good shape, with a punchy 389 V/8. I drove the car for a year and a half before selling it for $125.

Car I wish I still had

Was a 1957 DeSoto Fireflite Sportsman two door sport coupe with a 331 cubic inch hemi engine and push button torqueflite transmission Look one up on the web. It's a beautiful car.

Logo for Classisc, Muscle, and Music

THis group is for people like me. I love old classics like the Bel-Air and the original Vette to pure muscle like the 70 LS6 Chevelle or the 69 Z28. But you cant count out music. Since the fortys music and cars have been fused into this beautiful monster we have today.
