About pickle1’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I've been around cars all my life. We farmed and my dad had a mechanic shop and wrecker while I grew up. My folks stared with a 1937 Hudson Terplane, this car was the 1st to be in the garage when they opend for business. Then came a 1949 Buick business coupe, They kept the Terplace till about 6 years ago.
went to car shows with my dad alot. Built my first car when I was 15. Put a wrecked 66 Impala back together . My first real one was a 1974 Elcamino SS in 1982. Built up the original 400 SB for it all by myself including all the machine work. It would pull the front tires up about 2" or so. Had someone rebulid the factor 350 turbo trans with a shift kit. Found a 10 bolt Posi put in 411 gears. Another friend of mine and I did major body work. Had him paint it Brandy whine two tone. Said he would paint it for free if he could try and paint it with the House Of Color paint. Ok by me. Car came out perfect.

My first car

wrecked 1966 chevy impala 4 door. 283 powerglide with 10 bolt posi.
