About joepad’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

Always was a car guy. My dad and uncle owned a used car lot and that's where I bought my first 3 cars. A 1963 Pontiac Tempest, 1965 Chevy Malibu and 1966 Caprice. I learned to drive with and took my driver's test with a 1965 Corvair. I had my choice of any car on the lot to learn to drive. I asked dad,"I need a car that will be easy to parallel park when taking the driving test". He replied, "take the Corvair!" I never owned one, but, it was a great car to drive and now I finally have one, restored to my specs. Still wish I kept the Malibu though!!
