Cars Profile

About me and my passion for cars

It all starts way back when I was born. Dad used to run Sprint Cars in the early '70's so we were always around race cars, he was an ace motor mechanic, so I followed, always hanging around the cars while they were getting worked on. Although I didn't qualify as a motor mechanic myself, I went and got an Aircraft Maintenence Engineering ticket instead. Cars are my hobby.

My first car

1970 VG Valiant Coupe (Australian version of '69 Dodge Dart)

Car I wish I still had

*1969 VF Valiant Coupe (Austrlian version of '69 Dodge Dart),321ci V8, 13.6@104MPH
*1969 Rambler Javelin (RED)343V8 AUTO
*1973 Dodge Challenger (GOLD)

My dream car

Porsche 1990 928 GT
1970 AMX 390V8 4sp
Bugatti Veyron
Alfa Romeo 8C
At least I'm driving one (Porsche 928)

Car clubs I’m in
