About me and my passion for cars
To start my name is Jeremy and I am the proud owner of the Monster, My Baby and the '74. The '74 isn't any where near done yet but maybe some better pictures will be in the making. Believe it or not there was a time when I didn't know from my ass and a hole in the ground about cars. I did a little bit just by helping my dad work on 'em but other than getting into the engines and horsepower and torque. But when I started getting more involved with all the fun stuff is when I started hangin around with my aunt's ex-boyfriend. Well that was well a pretty fun time between the drinking and well ummm other things that aren't necessarily legal we didn't get much work done but I learned quite a bit about engines, transmissions, drivetrains, brakes and other stuff more along the line of performance. And then the Beretta came a long and well the rest of that part about me is history.
About me as a person, well I'm probably the most outgoing person anyone could ever meet. I fly by the seat of my pants so to speak if it sounds like fun usually I'm there. Lately I haven't been able to do too much of that due to too much stuff that needs to be done. Amazingly I haven't been arrested yet lol. Whether its a party out in the middle of no where, or hanging out with my buddies. But I love to street race when I get the chance. Haven't been on a strip yet, but after my bro's 48 Ford F-3 truck with a 460 BBC gets completed Skyview Drags in Syracuse is where its gonna be. I'm a pretty fun-lovein guy, and I'm simple too. I don't like things too complicated, I'm straight forward and true, I don't like to deal with people's selfish egotistic bull**** as my father and I say. I mean don't get me wrong, we all have issues and bull**** but some people just have more than others. Other than I'm a simple guy, I didn't have a whole lot of things given to me nor was money really readily available so I enjoyed the simple things in life which is what has made me who I am today. I wouldn't have it either other way to be honest.
My first car
My first car was an 86 Cavalier with a 2.0 gutless 4 cylinder, until my dad junked it due to the body getting pretty beat up on it.
Car I wish I still had
I guess I haven't been alive long enough to say that but I know a car I wish i did get and that was an 85 Monte Carlo SS with a 350 4 barrel under the hood.
My dream car
Oh boy this is a rough one, there are a few. The first and foremost the brand new 2010 Chevy Camaro, then there is the 67 Corvette L88 C48 that has 560 horse off the showroom floor. And last but not least I would have to say a 69 Yenko Camaro 427
