About me and my passion for cars

I'm a car guy, but no longer a wrencher. I used to do some minor work as a teenager, including rebuilding a VW engine. I could rebuild carbs, pull and replace components and accessories, but never pulled or swapped a water-cooled engine. (I could pull, swap and rebuild VW engines and had a bunch of them.)

I admire the guys who can build their own cars.

As I said above, I stick with US and Canadian-built cars, though I would buy an old VW bug for nostalgia purposes.

I've owned Mercury Grand Maquis, which I like. (I have weird taste). I'd love a hot-rodded Crown Vic. Hot Rod magazine a while back had a build for the modular 4.6 with Trick heads that made really good power; way over the meager stock power in that modular engine. I've seen one really nice build, but it's not a popular car for obvious reasons.

My first car

1971 Chevy Luv Truck
My Dad, who never bought foreign cars, did not know that it was an Izuzu product.

1965 VW Bug
1966 VW Bug
1970 VW Squareback

Car I wish I still had

1970 Chevy Nova
My 66 bug

My dream car

1969 Nova retro-modded with modern engine (LS2?) and modern suspension; original interior (with some safety mods)

2013 Cadillac CTS-V

Though I could be wrestled into buying an old VW Bug, I buy only US/Canadian-built cars, though I neglected to check where my wife's 2009 Saturn Vue was built since all the prior Vue's were Tennessee-built. Her Vue is a Mexican-built Opel Antara.
