About QuikZilver’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
What can I say...I have a huge passion for speed and muscle. Hence, owning a 2007 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T, 1986 Corvette and a 1986 Monte Carlo SS. I love speed and compete in the local Corvette Challenge, GM Challenge, and Mopar Challenge (Drag Racing, 1/4 mile) and have had the opportunity to drive a NASCAR via Richard Petty Racing around the Disney Speedway in Orlando. So far, I have 49 laps under my belt on that track.
My first car
My first car was a 1980 Pontiac Sunbird Coupe with the Iron Duke, 2.5L I-4 motor. It was a metallic burgandy with gold flake (not DUB style flake) with American Racing Golden Nugget rims. Totalled it after 1 month (took a Hyundai off the road, though). Was 16 at the time.
Car I wish I still had
I wish I still had my 1992 Ford Mustang GT and my 1993 Chevrolet Corvette and my 01 Z06 Corvette, as well as the cars I have today.
My dream car
Dream car...just about every muscle car built by GM ,Ford, Dodge, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc. Hard to pick just one.
Car clubs I’m in
I am not in any car clubs, but am part of the Corvette Challenge, GM Challenge and Mopar Challenge at Moroso in Palm Beach, FL and am a member of the Corvette Forum, Monte Carlo SS Forum, Digital Corvette Forum, Corvette Action Center Forum, Z06 Vette Forum, LX Forum, Charger Forum, Chargerz forum, etc. I think you get the point. :-)
