About joshua_grimes’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

Ive always loved cars. From a very young age, my mom had a late 70's nova, a cutlass supreme with a 350 olds in it, all kinds of crap, her cars were always crap but i liked them anyway. i never really got a chance to work on them till i turned 18 and bought my own. since then not a day goes by that my hands dont end up with grease on them, ive learned how to do all kinds of things on my own. right now i have several projects, including 79 datsun 280zx, a 1990 infinit m30, a 89 ford 3/4 ton 4x4 truck, and a 82 delta 88 with 45,000 miles on it, beautiful big boat, my current favorite, and yet i cant drive it because i tore the motor apart to fix the intake gasket, and kinda went off the deep end and now i dont want to put it back together with all the old parts, i bought all stainless hardware for it, painted the intake, and brackets, and water pump and the timing cover/pump backing plate, it looks so good that i cant see putting a dingy dirty power steering pump on it, with a dingy alternator and carb, it would look bad that way, and i dont care if it sits for a while longer because as it sits its not getting any more miles on it.

My first car

my first car was an 88' beretta gt, with the 2.8 v6 and an automatic, did 111 mph, paid $500 for it, and beat the crap out of it for two years, sold it for $300. was a pretty good car, considering all the issues it had.

Car I wish I still had

i wish i still had my 87 accord, it was good on gas, and i loved the flip up headlights, the only thing i didnt like about it was the automatic transmission, but it never gave me any problems.

My dream car

i would love to have so many cars its hard to narrow it down to one, so heres a list, for a big cruiser, i want a 59 cadillac eldorado convertible, for a race car i want a tube chassis 240 z with a 5.0 v8, for a daily driver i want a 72 chevy nova with a 350 and a 700r4 tranny, or a six speed, for a truck i would like to have a 75 chevy 3/4 ton with a 350, or a swapped in duramax.
