About me and my passion for cars
I started with a '65 Impala...from there, to a '68 Chevelle SS. That car turned 13.4 @104 the ONLY time I went racing. I think my next car was a Nova...I have had MANY V-8 Vegas durring this time period. Seven or eight if I remember right, and I HAD to slip a SBC in ALL of them. I even had a 1969 TRUE Z-28 Camaro, DZ all over it. Now, I have my second Monte Carlo SS, the story behind my getting this MC is.....well...ask, I may tell ya. I HAD a primo '74 Chevy Cosworth Vega, but we had an altercation with a Toyota Corolla...*T-Boned* at 50MPH, and that was that. My first Monte cured the Cosworth Blues (barely). OH yea...I had SO many Vegas, I got saddled with the nickname *Grumpy*, and I tell ya, it FITS. (Bill *Grumpy* Jenkins raced Vegas back in the day.)
My first car
first car..? Lemme think....a 1965 Chevy Impala straight 6 auto.After that, hehe, my wife saw a SS396, a '68 Chevelle, that *blew her skirt up*. When she took delivery of that...LOLOL...after drivin that 6 banger, she floored it to merge into *traffic*...and fishtailed, along with screamin tires, right on up the road. SCARED her S*hitless...!! LMAO..!!!
Car I wish I still had
I wish I kept the '69 Camaro Z-28...!!! Wish I still had the '74 Cosworth Vega too...along with the V-8 Vegas I built. That Chevelle I had was a legitimate 13 sec grocery getter.
My dream car
dream car huh...hmmm...MY *Dream Car* would be a 1976-77 Vega GT, with a twist tho. It would HAVE to have a Grand National Intercooled 3.8 V6 in it. Due to my age and assorted afflictions, it ALSO needs various creature comforts...those being, leather seats, 6 way power seats, etc, etc, the list goes on & on...
