About me and my passion for cars
Since I can remember I have always loved cars.
All types. I have owned more cars than I can recall. I have owned cars since I was 12 years old. Fords, Chevys, Plymouth, Austin Healy, MGB, Peugeot, Toyota, Super Coupes, Collector cars Ford LS Bill Elliot Edition, and more to many to mention.
My first car
Ford 1949 6 cylinder Flathead! Great car!!!
It was my first car I rebuilt the engine on. I drove it 1 or 2 miles and it blew up! I re-built it because it cost me $15 dollars for the car and 50 to rebuild the engine. I drove it at night only with the light off I was to young to drive. IT was taken away once I got caught driving it without lights and got a couple of tickets. My parents took it away from me, so I would swipe my fathers keys to his 1956 buick and completed my own driving school. I used to have to push this huge car a half a block so my father could not hear me start the car and go to my girl friends and go parking. We got caught. We elopped after AIT while in the service. Since then I owned a few diffrent cars Thunderbird Super Coupes, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Building a Super Coupe to run at the Boneville Salt Flats going to attempt to brake land speed record for the Thunderbird Super Coupe Land speed record! 214 Miles per hour in 5 milemile distance this will not be easy but it will be possibly my last hurrah!
More to come later on. Stay tuned....

last time I checked. Car has it's own trophy room. I still can't beleive they tradedthat car in for a Peugeot. I thought it was a prank they had pulled on me!!! I woke up and still had the Peugeot. I was not having a nightmareIt was real! This had actually happened I just could not believe it.Someday I will get that car back. I spend a buck a week to see if I can win the Florida Lotto! Someday I will get that car back or a clone of it! Maybe It will have litter of new Corvettes and I can get one like it again. I am getting pretty old I better hurry !!! I love my Thunderbird Super Coupe...It worth one of the tires of that 1967 Corvette but I loveit just as much!!! Maybe It will become a classic before I croak!
