About alwaysakid’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I've been into cars for as long as I can remember and have attended car shows in at least 10 different states from the Eastern Seaboard to the Rocky Mountains over the past 30 years. I like original antique cars, but have a taste for street rods and customs as well. I like the styling of the 1950s best. I currently own a two-owner 1961 Thunderbird, and a modified 1951 Chevy sedan delivery that is currently in my son's possession. Past rides of interest have included a 1950 Studebaker Champion, 1960 Oldsmobile 88, 1954 Nash Metropolitan, 1958 Mercury Monteclair, 1966 Chevy Nova, 1971 Chevy Caprice and a 1968 Rambler American, not necessarily in that order.

My first car

My first car, a 1973 Datsun 610, was bought more out of practicality and as a political statement than for its styling or performance.

Car I wish I still had

I wish I still had my 1966 Nova, minus the damage a Rochester, NY taxi did to it one day when my wife was driving it. That was back before they knew how to straighten a bent frame.

My dream car

I'll try to keep the list as short as I can. But near the top would be a 1936 or 1937 Cord, 1955 or 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria and a 1957-1960 Studebaker Hawk.
