About me and my passion for cars

My Dad was a Master Mechanic and growing up, we constantly had cars and trucks in our garage being worked on, including numerous race cars. My Dad could definately turn a wrench and make Horsepower appear from nowhere! I loved it as a kid having drag and stock cars in our driveway! I started hand lettering race cars and tow trucks at age 15 and did a bunch of them for folks.(I wish i had some of those cars back now!!). Something i love to do, is get with my buddies and wander through old junk yards back in the mountains. It's unreal, whats setting in these places!! Exciting but sad at the same time. Wish we could bring back the GOOD OLE DAYS!! The movie: American Grafitti, is a "homemovie" of my teenage years. You didn't go out on Saturday night, in your "rod", and act bad, unless you could back it up!!! Thank you, Lord, for letting me Live in that era!!! (even though i am a Vietnam vet.)

My first car
