About vegavairbob’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
My life has always revolved around cars, both as a hobby and a livelihood. I began selling new cars at 21 and have been making a living at it for 32 years. In the 80s and 90s I drove a new car every year (It was a fringe benefit of the job back then). I work and reside on Long Island, New York.
I enjoy participating in car shows. My currently owned Vega GT won "Best Preservation" in the 2010 Hemmings New England Concours D' Elegance.The car was the subject of a retrospective comparison test in the Fall 2010 issue of Motor Trend Classic. The newest addition to my garage is a 3k-miles Cosworth Vega. This car is also the subject of a retrospective comparison for the Spring 2013 issue of Motor Trend Classic. (see blogs).
I also like vintage bikes. My first bike was a new 1979 Yamaha SR500F. I also owned a 1980 Yamaha SR500G and more recently, a 1975 Yamaha XS650.
