About me and my passion for cars
As a young boy I had an obsession with cars, I had one of the biggest collection of Hot Wheels and Johnny Lighying cars on my block most of the kids wanted to trade with me all the time but I kept all my cars...later I started to collect Corgi cars, these were much bigger than the hot wheels but they did so much more...the only problem was that they were hard to come by...I was lucky because we travelled all over the world and I was able to buy them in cifferent countries where they were more popular. As I got older my eye started to take notice of real cars and my fasination for them grew...my Dads' car took on new meaning as I thought how I was going to modify it when it became mine...fortunately this never happened...I started to do airbrush murals on cars and vans and saved my money until one day I found my 1967 CAMARO and it only cost me $250.00. It ran good and needed a little body work...that was the begining of my life long fasination with cars..
My first car
My first car was a 1964 Chevy Impala, but I was only 14 when I bought it, so very little work ever was done to it..3 years later I sold it and bought a 1967 Camaro, this is the car I fell in love with
Car I wish I still had
My 1967 Camaro....I put 12 years and $36,000.00 into that car...fully worked 327 with a racing 2spd power glide and ground up restoration...lots of bloody nuckles and sweat....it hurt so bad to lose it....
My dream car
AC Cobra, and now, of course the New Camaro....

About me and my passion for bikes
I started riding mini bikes when I was 8...my mother had fits when she found out, so I would have to sneek to my friends' house and we would walk his bike several blocks away so we could ride it. When I was 10 I read about a guy who built a bicycle and hooked up a lawn mower engine to it and would ride it to work. So I found a old lawn mower and took it apart and figured out how to mount it to a ten speed bike while still keeping all the gears working. My biggest problem was stopping it...but I was clocked by the local police at 58 mph in a 30 zone....needless to say my parents were not happy and the bike was taken away...the next time I rode a motorcycle was when I was visiting my cousin in Sweden, he took me to a young peoples club or hang out where they played music and drank soda ?!?!?...but some of the guys brought vodka and they got smashed...I wasn't allowed to drink so I got to drive my cousin home no his bike and then I had to take myself home ....the long way....of course...
