About can2tx’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I've liked cars for as long as I can remember. My Dad was in the USAF and upon his retirement he became a mechanic for the Ft. Worth & Arlington Fire Departments. Dad was always doing maintenance on our cars and I was out there helping him - "professional flashlight holder", if you will - and learning how to care for cars. Since I've had my own I just enjoy relaxing, caring for them, and working on'em.

My first car

My first car was a 1978 Chevrolet Silverado 3/4 ton pick-up, that I got in 1980. I put chrome wheels, toolbox, push bumper, and a stereo in it (started off with an 8-track).

Car I wish I still had

I wish I still had my 1981 Chevrolet Silverado 1/2 ton shortbed pick-up. My Dad bought it new for me, for doing well in High School and for starting college. I had put custom wheels, tires, push bumper, spotlights, stereo system, and other odds & ends on it. I would also like to have a 1984 4x4 Chevrolet Silverado K5 Blazer that I bought new, it was just a great car.

My dream car

My realistic dream car would be a 2006 Chevrolet Z06 Corvette, but my pure dream car would either be a Porsche GTR or a Ferrari 355, 360, or 430.

Car clubs I’m in

I'm not a member of an actual car club per se; but I am a member at 2000Monte Carlo.com - stop by & visit a great forum and great bunch of people.

Next Mod?

Filed under: 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (Intimidating SS)

Well, I guess my next planned Mod will be the GMPP lowering springs. I need to eliminate more of the wheel gap and give the car a better stance.
