About me and my passion for cars

I STARTED OUT LIKING CORVETTES , 76 STINGRAY'S . THEN I GOT A LOOK AT THE 77 TRANS AM IN THE MOVIE SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT, THEN IN DEC OF 1977 I ATTENDED A COUSINS WEDDING , HE AND HIS BRIDE HAD A NEW 77 BANDIT T-TOP AND THEN I WAS HOOKED, THE REALITY OF THE CAR, AND HEARING THE 400 GROWL LIVE WAS TOO MUCH, I WAS HOOKED! I HAD MY FIRST T/A IN 1983. IT WAS A 1975 TRANS AM, WHITE WITH ORANGE,RED AND YELLOW DECALS IT HAD BLK VYNAL INTERIOR, AND RALLY II WHEELS . IT WAS A 400 AUTOMATIC, W A/C. THIS WAS THE ONLY CAR MY DAD EVER HELPED ME WITH AND HE ONLY LOANED ME PART OF THE MONEY, FOR A SHORT TIME, I HAD SO MUCH FUN IN THAT CAR DURING HIGH SCHOOL, AND HAVE NEVER GOTTEN ANOTHER TICKET FOR AS MUCH AS I DID IN THAT CAR EITHER, HA HA ! BUT I HAVE HAD SOO MANY T/A'S SINCE THEN . WISHING TOO THAT I HAD KEPT SEVERAL OF THEM. THEN IN 1995 I BOUGHT A BEAUTIFUL 1979 SUNDANCE YELLOW WITH FIRETHORN DECALS AND CAMEL TAN CUSTOM VYNAL INTERIOR, IT AS A HARDTOP CAR WITH A 403 , AUTOMATIC CAR WITH NATURAL CAST COLOR 7" SNOWFLAKES WITH 34,000 ORIGIONAL MILES ON IT, ALL ORIGIONAL CAR I DROVE THAT ONE UNTILL 2002,WHEN IT WAS STOLEN FROM ME AT MY WORK AND LIABILITY DIDN'T PAY ANYTHING SO I WAS LEFT WITH NOTHING, AND IN 2006 MY EXWIFE HELPED ME WITH A GENTLE NUDGE TO BUY THE 1979 SE BLK N GOLD T-TOP THAT I NOW OWN, AND AM TRYING TO RESTORE! IT'S HARD TO UNDERSTAND FOR SOME PEOPLE, I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A NEW CAR OR A REALLY EXPENSIVE SPORTS CAR . I JUST WANT THE CAR I'VE ALWAY'S LOVED, AND IT ISN'T IMPOSSIBLE, AND NOTHING GREAT, WONDERFUL OR WORTH HAVING IS EASY, IT IS JUST GOING TO TAKE TIME AND DEDICATION. BUT I WILL NEVER SELL THIS ONE. BECAUSE YOU SEE , I HAVE A SON THAT IS GOING TO HAVE A LOVE AND PASSION FOR THIS ONE! I JUST KNOW THAT ONE DAY WHEN ITS DONE AND IT IS REAL, AND HE HEARS ITS 400 GROWL, HE TOO JUST LIKE ME HE WILL BE HOOKED!
