About mallard_road_garage’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I've been into cars for as long as I can remember. My Uncle Robert was always building or working on Hot Rods and he was my inspiration and the person that exposed me to Muscle Cars. I began subscribing to Hot Rod and Car Craft magazines at a young age and spent much of my time dreaming of building cars like thoses featured in the magazines.

My first car was a 1969 Chevelle Malibu that I bought for $750.00 (non-running). My father knew a guy with a low mileage 350 L-82 Vette engine. The guy was willing to sell us the Vette engine and install it for $400 plus the original Chevelle 350 250 HP.

I had to work off the additional cost but the result was a $1200 '69 Chevelle that ended up being nearly the fastest car at my high school. Had a lot of fun with that old jade green Chevelle.

Decades later I'm married with four children but I still have the same dreams as I had as a kid. I'm looking forward to the day my sons or daughter "catch" the Gear Head bug so that I can share my mechanical knowledge with them and we can build projects together.

Currently my projects include my 1984 Olds Cutlass, 1984 Mustang Convertible, and a 1977 Ford F-150.

My first car

Bought my first car at age 15. It was a 1969 Chevelle Malibu that my Dad and I towed home because it was not in running condition. We got it running and my Dad drove it until I turned 16.

Car I wish I still had

My 1966 Chevelle 300 Deluxe.

My dream car

I've got a few but a the early '70s Pontiac Trans Ams with SD-455 tops the list. I've also always wanted to build a Vega, Ford Maverick, '68-'72 Nova.
