About Tinman5’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I've never really understood "stick and ball" sports. From where I sit, unless it has four wheels and a motor, it doesn't count.

I've been told that even as a very young child, I was nuts about anything automotive. Maybe it's because I was born in Detroit. Maybe it's because my grandfather would put me on his lap as he backed out the car from the garage every time he went to work or that my parents took me on a tour of the assembly line in River Rouge, MI when I was still barely learning to walk and in some way it sparked my imagination.

In any case, my passion for Pontiac muscle is hopelessly a part of my nature and I'm pleased to have the opportunity to share it with you.

Hope you enjoy the garage,

1967 Buick Special

My dream car

1970 Orbit Orange GTO Judge
