About me and my passion for cars

The older and more weird, the better. I mean, I love Mopars mostly, but also appreciate GMs and Fords. Love GTOs, Chevelles, Cadillacs, Galaxy 500s, Falcons, Mustangs, etc. I especially love low-budget backyard kustoms. I'm not a huge fan of museum pieces. If it's not being driven, what's so special about it? I don't understand people that restore cars to pristine condition just to trailer it around. Cars should be driven. Cars should be unique to the individuals that own them. Owning an old car should be FUN. It shouldn't be a hobby for the rich...

My first car

'63 Plymouth Fury Station Wagon - OK, that was the car my parents had when I was born, does that count? The first car I ever owned personally was a '74 Chevy Monte Carlo. After that, a '75 Pontiac LeMans Grand Am.

Car I wish I still had

'63 Plymouth Fury Station Wagon - haha! Would've loved to buy that one off of my dad. It would've been a fun car to customize.

My dream car

'62 Dodge Dart or a mid-'60s A100 Pickup. I also like the new Dodge Magnum wagons and Dodge Challengers.
