About The_Dude’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I've been a car nut as long as I can remember. My dad had a couple of SS Chevys ('63 Impala, '65 El Camino) before I was born, and was still a Chevy man when he died last year. I got the fever from him, but I don't think he ever forgave me for having a Plymouth Volare as my first car, and a Ford Gran Torino now. I'm still a Chevy man at heart. I bought the Volare when I was 15, and swapped out the 2-barrel 318 for a dual-quad 440 before I got my license. The car looked like crap, but she was the fastest thing in the area!
Dale Earnhardt got me into NASCAR when I was about 10, with his take-no-prisoners style. I'm still a fan of his today, and Dale jr is my favorite current driver. I like Pro Stock drags too, but not top fuel or funny car. I can't identify with cars that don't look like cars.

Life imitates art...

Well movie fans, it happened... The climactic scene in "The Big Lebowski" in the bowling alley parking lot happened to me yesterday evening, but it was at Pep Boys, not a bowling alley. I've been having trouble with the Torino running rough recently, so I...
