About me and my passion for cars

My passion for cars, huh? Well, I guess it runs pretty deep. I'm a gearhead above all. I can't always remember my kids' birthdays but I know the firing orders for just about every American made V8 before 1974. I spend almost all my free time under the hood or ferreting parts out of the local junkyards. I learned to weld when I was in highschool, built my first chassis when I was 18, and have YET to own a vehicle I couldn't make quicker. My daily driver is a '96 Mustang GT or my '64 F-250. My current project is a '94 F-150 with a 557 cid stroker on nitrous, and I have an 18" diameter Ford "Gear and Lightning Bolt" Ford emblem tattooed on my back. People who know me well typically don't like to hang out with me in the designated smoking area at work because they know all I ever talk about is cam profiles, narrowed 9 inch's, and BIG FAT MICKEY THOMPSON SPORTSMAN TIRES!!! Currently, I'm in Texas but heading back to Korea for my third trip this January. BTW, I should mention that I am a full time Soldier and single dad so, for the most part, my day is pretty full. Passionate? Just a bit.

My first car

1971 VW Superbeetle - White and mild-mannered. I sold it when my dad got tired of buying me new engines for it.

Car I wish I still had

I'm the guy that even after owning fourteen vehicles, NEVER SOLD the ones that meant the most to me.

My dream car

Too easy...1958 Plymouth Fury Sport Coupe, Blood Red and Ivory White. Pro-Street, of course.

Car clubs I’m in

About me and my passion for bikes

I've ALWAYS enjoyed bikes. The feeling of the open air at speed on a beautiful day is priceless. Enjoying this feeling on a sweet Harley you can be proud of just makes it all that much better.

My first bike

1970 Honda Trail 90 I traded a pool cue to get.

Bike I still wish I had

1984 Honda XR-200R dirtbike. It was my brother's but I rode it every chance I could. It was stolen and recovered but never the same after we rebuilt it.

My dream bike

I just bought it!

Bike clubs I’m in

Nope. No time for Bike Clubs.
