About corsa’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
I have loved cars since I was a kid. I grew up around my Uncle's 1964 Corvette, but I gained a love for foreign sports cars, particularly European. I am passionate about Porsche, BMW, and Corvairs. I also love Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Bugatti, McLaren, and so much more.
My first car
1973 Opel GT. It was the only car with an automatic I've ever owned. It was two-tone gold and brown. My brother got the car after me and swapped in a 4-speed, a Weber carb, header, and a nice Flame Red Metallic paint job, along with custom wheels. It was way cooler when he owned it.
Car I wish I still had
I still own my favorites. :)
My dream car
Porsche Carrera GT; Porsche 550 Spyder; Lamborghini Miura SV; McLaren F1; Porsche 911 GT3; Lotus Elise; Aston Martin DBS; Audi RS4; Yenko Stinger (Corvair); Rampside (Corvair)
