About me and my passion for cars

it started when i was dad was a true hot rodder and one of the best mechanics i have ever known.i can remember his 200 plus model cars,his old bsa motorcycle,the 62 galaxie 2dr hardtop with mags in the garage,the[little] 50's and 60's rod and custom mags we looked at when i was about 5 or 6.i went to shows with him,and was the tool box carrier for all the junkyard trips.everytime we went he would ask what is that one or what makes this one a 55 ford not a 10 yrs old we started looking for a project we found a 40 merc but was just to far gone to mess with,he bought me a 49 merc model that day,i now have 200 plus models he also bought me my first hot rod mag[now over 3000 mags.we finally found a 56 merc.we were trying for a 50's custom 58 chev grill roll pans front and rear.then the navy sent him to ohio on recruiter duty,mom called the junk man i never saw the 56 again.from there i just kept trying to get another project but then i went in the service and then kids and life i am sure you all know what i mean.then my dad retired and wanted me to start a shop with him.but just as things were coming together he passed away from leukiemia so i am hoping to get my kids into daughter has a love of pinstripping,my oldest boy is starting a 56 fury,my youngest is starting a 65 fairlane ,but because of his "poppy" really wants a 58 or 59 edsel.i have graduated from paris vo tech autobody repair,and from nashville auto diesel college undercar specialist [car mechanic] with 5 ase certs and 2 kw certs.along with my oldest son.anyone needing another hot rod tech?
