About me and my passion for cars

I started my restoration project in oct 99. Took 6 & 1/2 years. During project I had 5-way bypass & cornea transplant. First time out after completion we took a 1st place trophy @ the Hampton Roads Li'l Red Express & Warlock Owners show in June of 06.

I've been playing with automobiles since childhood. I became blind in 1992. This presented a strong challenge, but we succeeded in adapting & overcoming this obstacle.

Great pit crew with the wife & daughter, (Christine & Lydia)

June of 07 we took "Best in Show " at the Lil Red Express Nationals in Grafton Virgina. WOW!!!!





My first car

1956 Plymouth Savoy

318 Wide Block 4-barrel witth 3 speed column shift

This car my dad drove to his senior prom. It was a hand-me-down from his old brother who bought in new.

Car I wish I still had

1970 Dodge Charger 383 magnum Black interior, copper exterior.

Rebuilt the motor in the back yard on a pallet & a sheet of plywood. Car was strong.

Traded it for a mobile home to live in.

My dream car

My 1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express. This truck was new when i was 17 years old. Wanted one then but didn't have $8000.00 . Had to build one to get it.

Car clubs I’m in

Vice-Chairman
Hampton Roads Li'l Red Express & Warlock Owners Club
