About charlieoc’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
Member of small group of individuals who started up British car club in North Central Florida (North Florida British Motoring Club). Also a member of national Austin Healey club and Antique Automobile Car Club. Currently own a 1971 MGB/GT, 1959 Austin Healey Sprite and a 1959 Austin Healey 3000 BT7.
My first car
My first car was a 1967 MG 1100 which did an excellent job of getting me through high school. That was followed by a 1971 MGB/GT and then a 1973 Triumph TR6. Yes, I like British cars.
Car I wish I still had
I had purchased a 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 new while living on the island of Guam. I made a big mistake selling it in 1986. If we could just go back in time.
My dream car
My completed Austin Healey 3000

The Austin Healey couldn't have arrived at a better time. The weather has been perfect for driving down canopy covered roads in North Florida. Good friends joined my wife and I in their MGB for a drive through Leon and Gadsden counties, with a stop off in...
