About monkeewrench’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I started loving cars at the beach when I was about 4. In one weekend I took all the matchbox cars, constructed roads and an elaborate switchback road up the side of a dune... Parents were like, "wow check that kid out... He likes cars..." That same weekend camping in Maine, I saw an amphicar drive into the ocean, past the breakers!!! Told my parents and they were like, sure kid, they drove their car into the ocean... That's nice.... They didn't believe me. Then they saw it later coming back in and driving up on the beach and apologized to me.

Worked in auto parts and machine shop in my early 20's and really got into cars.

Currently offending the neighbors are:
1966 Chevelle Malibu SS Clone, 406 small block Canfield Heads... On and on...buckets, console TH400...
1972 K5 Blazer, 4speed, 350
1968 Elcamino with matching Viper Blue Pearl Metallic jetboat with a 468" BBC, tunnel ram, on and on...
1967 Triumph Herald roadster... (google that!!!) Spit 1500 motor with dual su's, header, electronic ignition. 71HP at the rear wheels...
1978 Datsun King Cab 4x4 Z22 bored .020" 2.0 head ported and polished, dual 44mm Mikunis, 10:1, 5sp, etched glass, F350 steering, Dana 44 up front, host of other goodies...
1979 Triumph TR7 "Wedge" Limbo status waiting for title.
1978 Datsun King Cab parts truck
1975 MG Midget donor vehicle for the Herald roadster...
Just purchased a 1955 Willys CJ5A!!! Professionally converted V-8 Willys, scored it for $1,000!!!
Lastly, a 52 Ford 9N tractor with loader and PTO/ Blade
