About me and my passion for cars

My passion for cars started as a young boy growing up listening to my grandpa talk about all his old cars, and how fast they were and outrunning the law. He would always tell me that he had the fastest car in Indiana. I never believed him, I just like listening to his stories. Then one day I was in a bar talking to an older genteleman about cars and he said something like "I had a real fast camaro back in the day, but there was a guy running around with a red Chevelle that was untouchable." I asked him if he remembered his name he said " No but I can tell you he had really dark hair and lived in a town called North Judson." My mouth hit the ground. He decribed my grandpa and his car to a T. Maybe I should believe him more often.

My first car

My first vehicle was a 1986 Chevy K30 military ton and a quarter. It has the Dana 60 front axle with the GM 14 bolt rear with 4.56 gears in them. It has the 6.2 GM diesel motor breathing out of 7 inch stacks. She is sitting on 33/12.5/16.5 TSL super swampers. OK my first CAR was a 1976 Pontiac Firebird Formula. It has 68,000 original miles. It is Pontiac orange with power windows and locks. She has the 400 with the the TH 350 trans.

Car I wish I still had

I still wish I had my 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII. Not only was it a pleasure to drive. It would flat out scream. It had the 32 valve 4.6 liter Ford Cobra motor in it.(basically the same minus the csuper charger.)

My dream car

Ok here we go. My dream car would be my 1976 Firebird with a 455 pontiac motor. I would have a 100 mm turbo "biggest enough to suck in small children and women" feeding her with enough air for a hurricane, and a intercooler as wide as the front of the car and 6 inches thick, behind the front bumper. To top of the motor mods I would have a NOS pro-fogger system blowing about a 500 shot right into the intake tube sitting on top of the 1050 cfm demon carb. What the heck might as well throw on some methonal injection to cool that turbo down a little. With about 1500 horse of the spray. I think a nice built narrowed 9 inch with 33/15/15 MT drag slicks wrapped around some nice drag lite wheels will work. Tie that into the adjustable 4 link suspension and think that will do.
