About chevy150’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I fell in love with cars as a little boy with his hot wheels and am still playing with my hot wheels and my real car. I have owned a dozen intresting vehicles ( 77 Mercury Monarch 2 door,73 Cougar, 76 Torino w/460, 80 Firebird, 78 T-Bird w/T-Tops rare, 72 EL Camino, 83 Mustang GT, 79 Malibu, 89 S-10, 80 Malibu Classic, 87 Grand Prix w/T-Tops, 79 Olds 98 2 door w/403 engine, & 75 Ford F150) over the past 18 years but I always wanted a 57 Chevy and was able to buy mine on ebay as a progect vehicle. I now have it on the road so I can enjoy it until the time comes to tear it apart to make it pretty. I also have a 1000 plus toy car collection that I consider my trophie. I can't afford to own al of the cars I want so I get them in minature. I have been a manager of a wholesale auto auction for 12 plus years, the perfect job for a car nut. I get to drive all of the cool and fun cars and bikes that go through the auction.
