About me and my passion for cars

Well being the oldest I had to spend many a weekend watching my dad fix old cars. He didnt have much time for fun things since he worked so hard, but I used to help him with his tools and then we'd usually spend half an afternoon doing something fun. I sure miss those days. He taught me everything I know (well, by just being there) I would go anywhere he went cause I didnt live with him and that meant being dragged to car shows and races and I never complained. It was really a lot of fun. Then when I was a teenager my first boyfriend was really into cars and I ended up spending many weekends with him helping work on cars. Whats a girl gotta do to get attention??

Well I can't complain because at least I can do what a lot of women wont and that is work on my own car. I never thought I would want to be that "into" cars as an adult and I used to tease my husband because he was so darn picky about his truck when I met him. But now that I have my Frenchi I know how it feels. If I won the lottery oh what I'd do to my car! Until then its one piece at a time!

Ok To answer the question, why is my nickname Pinkmini but my Mini is blue....Well I originally planned to get it custom painted. And actually I had the name before the car cause I dreamed of a pinkmini. But then the color grew on me and my husband made the valid point that my color isn't available anymore and therefore would someday be "rare". So I decided to leave it blue and add pink accents. I like to think of it as cotton candy blue and pink. It is sort of a cotton candy blue....

My first car

A Buick Convertible I think it was a 66. Huge beast of a car with a huge motor. It was cool. My dad gave it to me when I was 17. My mom made me sell it though :(

Car I wish I still had

I sorta wish I had that car still. I didnt have it long. And It was really cool even though it was huge. Theres nothing like old cars.

My poor Frenchi, I feel I have neglected her the past year. Life has been so busy. Then while down in Long Beach in April, driving through the traffic circle on PCH I was sideswiped by some lady. UGHH My poor car. She isnt to badly damaged but I...
