About me and my passion for cars

Every since I was little I have had a passion for cars. My father ran demolation derby's in the '70's and I have loved cars ever since. I am mainly into the huge "land yachts" like Cadillacs, Chyrsler New Yorkers, Imperials, and anything else that takes up two or more parking spots! I have never had the chance to actually completely restore a car but I hope to in the near future. I currently own a 1983 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency that has 54,000 original miles. It is in relatively good shape but could stand a new paint job since the original is starting to crack and of course the headliner started sagging so that also needs redone. All in all it is a pretty nice car. When I was younger I would buy cars and bring them home and my dad would have a fit. That was not something he really wanted his daughter to get into but it was too late. I had a '62 and a '63 Cadillac, a '76 Charger and a '76 Cordoba all withing a couple of years. Wish I had those cars back as well. I will take just about any car as long as it is one of the "Big Three". Not much into foriegn cars.
